Lagos, with its flora and fauna graced by a wonderful atmosphere and numerous natural and human resources, is no doubt one of the beautiful cities in Africa -- even more elegant than Mali's Timbuktu.
And the reality of this has been established in a couple of pictures taken by Nigerian historian and photo documentarian Dayo Adedayo two weeks ago as shared by the chief press secretary to Lagos state governor, Gboyega Akosile, in a tweet.
Using a drone camera to capture the beautiful scenes in aerial views, Adedayo carved a grace out of Lagos in its full splendour of naturalness and architectural design.
Buildings and skyscrapers sprawl across the lagoons with the presence of harmattan watching over the city from the sky from Ikoyi to Victoria Island.
Lagos, a centre of excellence, is arguably the most populous city in Nigeria and the African continent, and a major financial centre contributing immersly to the revenue of the country.
With a population of over 14 million, the state is known for its beach resorts, boutiques and nightlife.

Over a decade, Nigeria has been battling with the atrocities of dare-devil Boko Haram terrorists who have killed and displaced thousands not only in Nigeria, but also in Chad, Niger and northern Cameroon.
The group, which was founded in 2002 by Mohammed Yusuf, has proven to be a thorn in the flesh of peace of the northwest and northeast regions of Nigeria.
