Ikeja is a suburb in Lagos where both commercial and residential sit side by side. It is home to the majority of Lagos State Government’s administrative office as well as the State House of Assembly. Formally, Ikeja is the capital of Lagos State and to those who live in the Lagos mainland, Ikeja is a pivotal location. However, to those who live on Lagos Island and beyond, Ikeja is of no interest due to its location. This month Lagos Tour goes to Ikeja, the bustling nerve centre of mainland Lagos.
