                                    Zuma Rock
 The rock is composed of gabbro and granodiorite, that is located in Niger StateNigeria. It rises spectacularly immediately north of Nigeria's capital Abuja, along the main road from Abuja to Kaduna off Madala, and is sometimes referred to as the "Gateway to Abuja from Suleja.




Zuma is depicted on the 100 naira note. It was used for a defensive retreat by the Gbagyi people against invading neighbouring tribes during intertribal warring.



Wow! So this third one is one of the most common  places most people living in the western  part of Nigeria will probably have been to.  The city of Abeokuta would be incomplete without stopping by at the “fortress of Abeokuta”; Olumo Rock. It is no surprise that this rock is located in Abeokuta, as the name “Abeokuta” itself means “under the rock”. Olumo Rock has long served as a rock of offense and a fortress for the people of Egba Land, since the 19th century.  With  New facilities and renovations, you would be treated to attractions like natural tunnels, unusual trees, natural cantilevers, gardens on the rock, broken pathways, monuments of the belief system of the rock’s primeval settlers, three escalators at the characteristic height of the rock as well as an aerial and atmospheric view of the antique city of Abeokuta, from the apex of the rock. 
These new attractions are quite fun to  see again. If you've been there before be there again!
