Eti-Osa is a Local Government Area in the Lagos Division, of Lagos State, Nigeria. Within Eti-Osa are several important areas of Lagos, including Victoria Island, Lekki, and Ikoyi. Before the Nigerian capital moved to Abuja, Eti-Osa was the seat of the national capital.


Eti-Osa's people are predominantly from the Awori Yoruba subgroup, and Nupe and Gambari from the north of the country.

Business and Industry
