Eti-Osa is one of the 774 Local Government Areas in the Lagos Division, of Lagos State, Nigeria. However, Lagos State Government administers the council area as Ikoyi-Obalande LCDA, Eti-Osa East LCDA, Eti-Osa West LCDA and Iru Victoria Island LCDA. Within Eti-Osa are several important areas of Lagos, including Victoria Island and Lekki. Before the Nigerian capital moved to Abuja, Eti-Osa Local Government Area served alongside Lagos Island Local Government Area as the seat of the national capital.[1]


Eti-Osa Local Government Area has a population of 283,791, which represents 3.11% of the state’s population. 158,858 of the total population are male while the remaining 124,933 are female. [2]


Eti-Osa's people are predominantly from the Awori Yoruba subgroup.[3]

Business and Industry[edit]

There is little industry within Eti-Osa. Most residents work in fishing, farming, and trading. However, due to it being the former location of the nation's capital, Eti-Osa is home to many large domestic and international businesses.[4]
