First, I saw magnificent castle built within the quiet and isolated area of Oba Dosonmu street, GRA ikeja. The edifice has a 2-foot thick fenced wall, expensive and beautiful chandeliers amongst other ornaments that made the house look outstanding. This author could not believe one man will build such a mansion just live inside.

While there are many expensive houses in the country, one particular house has been attracting attention for some time now. And it’s been rumored to be the most expensive house in Nigeria.
The house, belonging to Okwudili Umenyiora, is obviously a product of rare architectural expertise and creativity. The house is located at Lekki Phase One (Oniru New Market), Lagos.
The house took about four years to complete and gulped a huge fortune estimated to be about $10 million. If that’s the real cost, then it might not be the most expensive house in Nigeria, but it remains one of the most expensive, most sophisticated, and most beautiful.
Some of the house’s fascinating features include floor televisions, indoor swimming pools, elevators to the fourth floor, and a garage with amazing decor and vehicles. The house was completed in late 2013.
The house is being maintained by five housekeepers, among who is a Philippine woman.
