Badagry, which is a secluded part of Lagos State is bounded by Ogun State and the Republic of Benin which is a francophone-speaking country. There is a whole lot of history attached to this city. Badagry houses the first storey building in Nigeria. It also houses lots of tourist attractions like the Badagry Beach, the Slave Trade Centre and others. Badagry is also the entry point for travelers coming in from other West-African countries into Nigeria. It is indeed a beautiful city with lots of captivating scenery.
