Oshodi in Lagos, is a densely populated and centrally located district. Although Oshodi evolved in modern times near the more traditional Mafoluku community, it has in time encompassed Mafoluku itself. Oshodi is site of Nigeria’s oldest modern markets, like the one officially opened in 1933 by the colonial governor, De Charles Cameroon. The relative cheapness of goods and services obtained in these markets contributes to the once uncontrollable and unplanned growth of the area. Oshodi was noted for the most part of post-independence Nigeria for hooliganism, motorway trading, and environmental pollution. The place was transformed into a more comely sight by the Fashola administration that came into office in 2007.
