It was party of a greedy land grab by all the European countries. Britain had the best navy and one of the best armies. Nigeria was considered to be quite a prize since it had a large and successful agriculture. Known natural resources were few at the time. Ivory and slaves were bought and sold. The Lagos lagoon and islands had been trading centres for many years.
