Epe is one of the major divisions in Lagos state located on the northern side of the Lekki lagoon and few kilometers from Ibadan city. A place for the export of fish, maize, cassava, coconuts, vegetables, rubber, palm produce, and so on. The primary occupation of its indigenes is fishing.

Coming into Epe after the epe bridge, you are met with an intersection and the left leads to Epe Resort and Spa, Accident and Emergency Centre all the way down to Ikorodu and the right leads all the way down to Ijebu-ode.

Also Epe is the hometown of the former Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, and current Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Dr Obafemi Hamzat.

The first time I was at Epe - I was impressed at the solid infrastructure - the extensive road network, the quality of the roads; well-paved - people suggested that Ambode gave special attention to Epe during his tenure and you can argue that it even has a better road network and quality than Lagos metropolis.

Epe is favorably situated close to the centre of Lagos, commonly named the new VI - and three times its size.
