Idumota Market is one of the oldest markets in Lagos and is located in the Lagos Island suburb. It contains thousands of lock-up shops which occupy various buildings in the market. The market is made up of multiple storey-buildings with some measuring about 5 or more floors. Idumota was previously the location of an armed forces remembrance cenotaph, called Soja Idumota, built as a monument to Nigerian soldiers who served with the West African Frontier Force. Today, an Eyo masquerade statue and a clocktower are also some monuments there. The market is one of the major distribution hubs for Nigerian videos in the country.
