These are big players in the Lagos Scene. I’ll update it as I know.

Ahigbe: (Gang) This group of high profile assassins has reached out into other vectors of marketing such as racketeering and extraction. They control the largest chunk of the white collar slave trade.
Anambra State Vigilante Service: (Militant group/Gang) This is a militant organization created in the 1990’s during an increase in crime rate in the Igbo regions of Nigeria. They are currently hedging their way into Lagos. In the early 21st century they re-branded themselves from being the Bakassi Boys—even though many still call them this. This militant organization has strong ties with the Area Boys and Chidi Ené.
Area Boys: (Street Gang) Igbo tribal gang of boys and young men that try to control Lagos with fines and fees. Offer racketeering and protection to those who pay the fees. Their pay goes straight up to Chidi.
Arewa People’s Congress: (Militant Group) This organization grew in reaction to the Oodua People’s Congress killing Hausa tribesmen. The APC have been in a constant struggle with the OPC, and the OPC has gone as far as placing a bounty on the heads of the APC (sitting around 2,000,000₦). The Hausa have a high population of orcs and trolls in their tribe since goblinization, their metafriendly attitude has been popular among other tribes.
Daughters of Yemaja (Gang): Priestess who follow Orishakô, goddess of agriculutre and fertility. They are violent combat mages who frequently go after cherubium and men who abuse women.
Egbesu Boys: (Cult/Street Gang) These men of the Ijaw tribe worship the deity of war and bloodshed Egbesu. Their cult became noteworthy after their long fight and decline with the British in the 19th century. After some time underground, the cult came out in the open in the constant battles of the Nigeria Delta oil field. The powerful Ijaw witch doctors inscribe ritual scarring in unsavoury locations and cast spells on the new recruits to protect them from bullets. They now operate across Nigeria (and in Lagos) as Talismongerers and hired mojomen. Their operations as adepts in Nigerian shadow wars is legendary.

The Onyara (Net Gang): A mysterious net gang of technomancers that work out of Fetsac. They have a lot of muscle to back up their brains in any operation, which they all keep on the down low because of the high cost of technomancers to corporations and that they would take any chance to capture a group of technos.
Oodua Peoples Congress (Militant Group): The Oodua is a Yoruba nationalist movement that showed up on the radar in 1993. Since then they have grown from a small ethnocentric organization to a full on genocidal ultra-nationalist meta-hating militant group. They work closely with the Yoruba Oni Adegoke and GS.
Sea Lions: A small gang that controls a neighbourhood in Shomolu.
Tamanous (Organleggers): Pan-global criminal organization involved in the flesh trade.
