THE MOORISH CITIES OF LAGOS IN NIGERIA AND PORTUGAL
The capital of Nigeria and the biggest state in Nigeria, West Africa
are named Lagos. Lagos is an Iberic word which means the lakes. The
province of Algrave in Portugal also has a city by the name of Lagos.
How come the capital of Nigeria is situated in a locality named after a
Portugese word is one of those not so known incidents of history.
We shall now take a look at the ancient Moorish Lagos, the Lagos that
was first situated along the coastal regions of Algrave (al-Gharb), in
Portugal southern Europe. There black men lived as kings and princes,
Amirs and Caliphs, and ruled, directed and cultured the Europeans until
they became semi-civilized and began to threaten the very foundation of
Yes there is a city of Lagos in Portugal which belongs to the great
annals of Black history.
The Portugese black Moorish Lagos is an ancient maritime town with
more than 2,000 years of history.
Moorish Lagos was an no settlement from the neolithic ages which
later got settled by the black Moorish Carthaginians. It is instructive
to recall that the Carthaginians were Canaanite colonists who working
together with the Numidians, the Garamantes and Touaregs built what was
known by later day historians as the Carthaginian empire.
The Canaanites also called Phoenicians were part of the
hamitic/semitic culture of north-east Africa. The Bible, the Torah, the
Koran and all other relevant books that emanate out of the near east
confirm that the Canaanites were an Ethiopic people who originally came
from Africa and roamed all over the world.
According to William Smith, Dictionary of Greek and Roman Geography
1866, the Canaanites were:
“These Moors, who must not be considered as a different race from the
Numidians, but as a tribe belonging to the same stock, were represented
by Sallust (Sal. Jug. 21) as a remnant of the army of Hercules, and by
Procopius (B. V. 2.10) as the posterity of the Cananaeans who fled from
the robber Joshua; he quotes two columns with a Phoenician inscription.
Procopius has been supposed to be the only, or at least the most
ancient, author who mentions this inscription, and the invention of it
has been attributed to himself; it occurs, however, in the history of
Moses of Chorene (1.18), who wrote more than a century before Procopius.
The same inscription is mentioned by Suidas (s. v.), who probably
quotes from Procopius. According to most of the Arabian writers, who
adopted a nearly similar tradition, the indigenous inhabitants of N.
Africa were the people of Palestine, expelled by David, who passed into
Africa under the guidance of Goliah, whom they call Djalout. (St.
Martin, Le Beau, Bas Empire, vol. xi. p. 328; comp. Gibbon, c. xli.).”

Lagos became a prominent city from this time of the original Black
Moors who were sometimes called Phoenicians or Canaanites or Ethiopians
or Africans. It was a major maritime centre, renowned for its ship
building industry and maritime trade networks.
From Roman Domination to Moors
The Romans rebels of the ancient Carthaginian empire destroyed the
state power from within and took over the physical estate of the Moorish
kingdom of Carthage. That was the beginning of the invention of the
Rome empire; an entreprise of marauding robbers who gobbled all of
colonies and trade network of Carthage. The great Moorish General
Hannibal gave his youth and life in that struggle. That was how come
Rome became a Universal Empire.
In this process Romans came to colonize Lagos and made it part of the
Roman province Lusitania.
Rome was not to last as it was in a crumbling state by the middle of
the 5th century AD. Its territories were lost to barbarian invasions or
independent aspirations of colonized people. Lagos was soon taken over
by the hordes of Visigoths and Vikings who lurked around the coastal
regions of North Africa and sourthern Europe for a couple of 100 years,
until the invasion of the Moorish army led by General Tarikh.
The Moors came in the eighth century. They renamed the town Zawaia
for Lagos (lakes), in Arabic. They named the region where it was situate
al-Gharb (hence the name Algarve).
The Moors fortified the city, and established important trade links.
It became the center of Moorish trading endeavours on the Atlantic.
From there ships would take off, circumnavigate Africa, on their way to
India and China. Moorish ships were sent from Lagos to trading networks
far out in the Americas and the Caribbean Islands. Lagos quickly grew
in wealth and importance. It soon became the light of the province of
the Algraves and was known as the Queen of the Algraves.
The Visigoths Re-enter:
The descendants of the Visigoths and the Vikings banded together in a
racial-bruder bond and conducted a scorch earth war policy against the
Moors for centuries, led and organized by the Roman Catholic Church
Organization. They targeted Lagos due to its wealth and technical
Algraves and Lagos were finally captured by the conquistadas the
united bruder-bond of white supremacy knights led by the agent of Roman
Catholic church later to be known as King Afonso III of Portugal in
1241. After the complete capture of Algarve in 1249 Afonso gave himself
the title “King of Portugal and the Algarve”, stressing the fact that
the Algarve, after the long rule by the Moors, was considered a foreign
country and not part of Portugal.
Algrave held its own even after this defeat and the conquistados were
content to take taxes, and books of knowledge from the Moors who
remained behind in their ancient domains.
As the Portugese understudied the Moors, the other arm of
conquistados finally penetrated into Espana some 250 years later with
the conquest of Granada. This marked a water-shed in the evolution of
racism and racial identity of the pale skin European. For his very
identity and nationalities were formed in response to the cultural
stimuli and challenges presented by the Moors in the Europe.
Following the conquest of Granada in Espana, the pale European sought
to throw off his inferiority complex that he had felt towards the
Moors. They unfurled their theory of “dialectical materialism,” a notion
of a perpetual struggle against the irreconcilable other, as
represented by the Moorish nations. The struggle was to entail any
weapon necessary to maintain the supremacy of the pale skin nations from
The Moor became fair target for everything, including racism,
slander, de-nigration (reduction to the status of the negro), lies,
murder, theft, robbery, pluder and rape and enslavement. They were
expelled from Spain to Portugal, then deported from Portugal to North
Africa, then on to West Africa, and finally in the Americas. And the
order and the universe of the gods were overthrown, and chaos has
reigned supreme ever since.
Wars in the North, South, East and West:
Due to its strategic location, Moorish Algrave Lagos played an
important role in the eventual European domination of the world. Just
like Roman emipire piggy-backed off the Moorish Carthaginian empire, so
too did the later European states of the Roman Catholic Organization
come to piggy-back off the terroritories, trade network and knowledge of
the Moorish Empire.
King João I, one of the Visigoth/Viking descended agents of the Roman
Catholic Organization assembled his fleet in the harbour of Lagos,
before setting sail for the siege and conquest of the city of Ceuta in
1415. In the opening up of Moorish west Africa to the eventual
domination of the European forces, this event has no matching watershed.
This was the first step in opening of Africa to the medieval Europe
on its own terms which were armed aggression, robbery, trickery,
treachery and enslavememnt. This was the so called age of Discovery
with Portuguese Pirates and seas soldiers/crusaders sailing around the
world and committing multiple genocide unchecked.
Prince Henry the Navigator, third son of King João I continued this
systematic war of unprovoked aggression, subjugation and pluder against
the “black-a-moors, who they now perceive as their mortal enemies and
the only force that could stand between them and world domination.
Prince Henry the Navigator lived most of the time in Lagos. He never
navigated even a cannoe all his life yet he was called Henry the
navigator. His name should have been Henry the hit contractor, for that
was his real job.
Henry set up a priate work-shop in Algrave Lagos. This work-shop
churned out hungry, desperate, amoral foot-soldiers to execute the evil
design of the Roman Catholic Organization against the nation and people
of the ancient Moorish empire. These soldiers were trained in the art
of deception, cowardly warfare and all manners of perfidies.
Henry set up camp as the ultimate sea-war lord; pirate benefactor;
hitman contractor par excellence. From Lagos he directed armed
expeditions against the land of the Moors from Morocco and to Benin on
the western coast of Africa.
Those piratical plunderers came with Carthaginian inspired caravels
and lateen-rigged ships. They roamed the sea coasts just off the
horizon out of sight of land lying in wait for the unsuspecting preys to
be at their most defenceless before pouncing with pathological hunger
and anger to devour and destroy all they can seize.
The Portugese of the Roman Catholic Organization called this
shameless act of cowardice and war-crime, “expeditions” or
“explorations” or voyages of “discovery”. No, they were shameless and
extreme acts of cowardice, weakness and desperation. These war-crimes
contributed singularly to the rise and the establisment of the Portugese
trading network who as explained earlier simply piggy-backed on the
material legacy and the real estate heritage of the ancient Moorish
Following his great success in perfidious wars waged against the
Moorish realms of west Africa and the Americas, booties, tributes,
stolen treasures, and “the black gold” enslaved moors, flowed back to
Henry the Mafia Contractor at his base in Lagos. Thus, it was through
Lagos that the first moorish slaves stolen from Carribeans and Africa
had entered post-medieval Europe. Henry received one fifth of the
selling price of the slaves since he was the chief sponsor. This one
fifth paid to Henry is what became the mercantile foundation of the
“royalty” payments that is still found in major entertainment industries
where humans and talents are still freely traded.
This illegitimate and evil system established in Lagos, Algrave moved
to Lisbon upon the death of Henry the Contractor.
Other European attacks later came from Lagos Portugal, and some were
very succesful others were repulsed. Like that of the ill-fated
Portugese King Sebastiao.King Sebastião was obsessed with great plans
for a great crusade against the kingdom of Moors in Fez. He assembled a
huge fleet in Lagos in 1578 and in the course of this ill-fated attempt
he and most of Portugal’s nobility were killed in the Battle of Alcácer
Quibir in Morocco.
In the annals of western aggression and eventual global domination,
Lagos was at least as important during the “Age of so-called Discovery”
as Cape Canaveral was during the early years of space exploration.
From the Year 1450 AD things began going really badly for the Moors
all over southern Europe especially in Espana where they were losing so
many wars and were divided and fighting amongst themselves.
So the Moors got defeated. And they got robbed and raped.
They robbed the glorious Moors, they killed them and then they sought
to efface their names out of history. But they could not, for some
Moors marooned off the coast of West Africa, had escaped into the forest
regions of Africa, to lie there silently and lick their wounds, until
the day of reckoning , when the Moorish flag and power shall stand again
unchallenged over the lands and the seas.
The genetic and the spiritual descendants of the Moors still live on
in west Africa where they fled for respite for the greater war that came
to them. There they will rise again, for he who fights and runs aways,
will live to fight another day.
Those Moors who were stranded off the coasts of west Africa numbered
in hundreds of thousands. Their descendants number in hundreds of
And who are those black-a-moors descendants?
Those descendants are feared and respected all over the European
world even though they no longer know who they are or what they are
about. Those descendants thrive and strive and do great things all over
the world through great tribulations, yet they still do not know why
and how come.
Because, the Roman Catholic inquisition which had also operated in
Africa during the 18th century, and the Roman Catholic Colonial
dispensation which has dissociated the African mentality and personality
form the true roots, have hidden their true history and names from
But their ancestors left metaphysical triggers of memories for them.
For in their recollection will come their redemption and re-ordonation
as Priests and leaders of the earth. Yes, they left tell tales signs,
landmarks, writings, and encoded words, sounds and memories for those
who may care to remember.
Those 15th century Moorish refugees sailed to the coastal regions of
the Atlantic in west Africa, along their ancient trade networks, in the
great Empire of Benin amongst a people from whom they originally came.
They had fled to the King of Benin for protection since the King of
Benin was also a Moor and Benin was also part of the ancient Moorish
Nigerian historians recall that Moorish Portuguese sailor Sequeira
had sailed to area now known as Lagos in 1472 with a ship load of
Moorish refugees. It was then owned by the King of Benin who had
provided permission to the homeless Moorish Portugese to settle in the
area under his protection from the enemy who pursued them. It is said
that they renamed the area around the city Lagos, meaning lakes.
There in the coastal regions of the Atlantic west Africa, they had
founded a location strikingly similar to their ancient stronghold of
Algraves. There they renamed Zawaia, Lagos, in the memory of their
beloved capital in Algraves Portugal.
And just like old Lagos in Algraves, Lagos Nigeria has become the
networked international capital of the ancient Moors who until now have
only known themselves by their British bequeathed colonial name
Niger-area, or Nigeria. Lagos Nigeria is old capital of Nigeria and is
still the commercial capital. The state it is located in is actually
named Lagos state.
It is a land of lakes and lagoons similar to the topography ethat
obtains in Algrave Lagos. It is the center of a vast maritime network,
ship building, banking, mining and other industrial activities. It is
one of the biggest if not the biggest city of black Moors in the world.
There are more than 20 million powerful Moors living in Lagos today
unaware of their spiritual and cultural legacy.
