But maybe Lagos’s path to commercial preeminence in the West African subregion was predictable after all. For decades, it was the political capital of an oil-producing country; and before that, it was the chief administrative centre of the British colonialists.

A species that is among Africa’s most endangered mammals, and are listed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as the highest conservation priority of all African primates, the Drill Monkeys are very special then. But more than its conservation, what makes this mammal important is the fact that they are only native to Nigeria.

Prequel to the amalgamation of Nigeria, there were various flags in use. These flags represented the various protectorates there were at that time. The flag of the Royal Niger Company used between 1887 and 1888 was a “white field with the United Kingdom’s national flag in the canton and a black “Y” with the words ‘ARS’, ‘JUS’, and ‘PAX’ written on the arms, surrounded by a red ring”.

It’s favored by commercial scale fish farmers as a money spinning breed; that’s because it’s considered a delicacy by a large section of the country’s population.
