About Nigeria

Nigeria is an African country located in the West African region. It is the most populous nation on the continent, with over 206 million inhabitants.

The Nigerian population is made up of diverse ethnic groups and has enormous linguistic diversity. The country is rich in natural resources, among which oil and natural gas stand out. Oil constitutes its main export product, placing Nigeria among OPEC members.

The first people to occupy Nigerian territory were the Nok, who initially settled in the north of the country and advanced towards the central areas. This culture was well known for its terracotta sculptures as well as the production of tools from iron.

In the period before the arrival of the Europeans, several empires were formed in Nigeria, among which is the Empire of Benin, where the Portuguese arrived in the 15th century.

In addition to commercial interests, people were trafficked to be enslaved in the Portuguese colonies. Nigeria became a British colony in the 19th century when British protectorates were created. The country gained its definitive independence on October 1, 1960.
