HOW THE NAME 'DODAN BARRACK' CAME ABOUT.

Dodan Barracks is a military barracks occupying a large area located off Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, Lagos, Nigeria. Dodan Barracks was the residence of the heads of state of various Military Governments in Nigeria, and also the Supreme Military Headquarters from 1966 until the move to Abuja in 1991.



The name "Dodan" originated from the site of a battle fought during the Second World War by the 82nd West African Division in Burma.
