This is another densely populated area in west Lagos with various state-owned low-income housing and private residential properties.
Houses in the area are not as ostentatious as in other parts of the city. A standard three-bedroom flat rents for between N180,000 and N300,000. Transportation in this part of Lagos largely consists of buses, authorized and unauthorized taxis and motorcycles because less than half of the residents have cars. Poor roads and heavy commuter traffic can cause unbearable congestion.
There is no special recreation in the area except for a few moderate hotels, eateries, night clubs and drinking bars. Ipaja is not very prone to crime but residents have set up vigilante groups alongside the police posts to help protect the area.
