Travel: Badagry || The Historical Town Of Slaves.

Badagry is a coastal town and local government area in Lagos State, Nigeria. It is situated between the city of Lagos, and the border with Benin at Seme.

In the history of Nigeria, the town Badagry can’t be exempted. Badagry is known as the historical land of slave, and it happens to be our very first stop in our ‘travel category’ this year, and I went with a friend and Blog viewer .

As I said earlier, Nigeria history is not complete without the mention of Badagry. The very first storey building in Nigeria was in Badagry. Badagry town was the second largest slave market after the city of Calabar, which was the largest then (thank God, slavery has been abolished), and slavery was stopped in Badagry in the year 1886.

We could go round the historical place that time because of time wasn’t on our side, I would share some pictures and video below.

About the total money spent:

There is no fixed price actually, the amount we spent could be different from the amount you would spend, because this is Nigeria, and there is no fixed price, seriously, but to get to the point of no return, it’s just N1200, N1000 for our tour guide, each place we visted was just N200 (those people there collected a thousand naira for each historical point visited from some babes, i was shocked when i saw them paying, i mean we paid two hundred naira each, damn!).

Enough of the talks now.

Am sorry, am not yet good in photography, the photos ain’t well crisp enough, all photos were taken with my phone. I hope to getter better in explaining with photos.

A short clip of the journey…(oops, I forgot, videos ain’t supported on this platform yet)..but you could follow me on Instagram for clips,@dee_iromi, like our Facebook page.

  1. I love travel posts and reading about history so this is like a two in one for me. Lol.
