A few kilometres to the west of Ikeja is the low-density neighbourhood of Opebi. One could describe it as a small town with a big heart. The neighbourhood is close to Olusosun and Oregun. After Allen and Toyin, it is the third important business district in Ikeja. 

Opebi is primarily a residential area, but it also contains numerous enormous shops, shopping centres, and offices. Due to the abundance of exquisite buildings that can accommodate any lifestyle, it is a district where both common people and powerful people live. 

Through Allen, Toyin, and Ojota, you can quickly connect to Opebi. Opebi's organisation and excellent road system make it stand out among other places.
