Calabar Cross River State, Nigeria 🇳🇬

Calabar is a port city in southern Nigeria, near the Cameroon border. The capital of Cross River State.

After the chiefs of Duke Town accepted British protection in 1884, the town, which was called Old Calabar until 1904, served as capital of the Oil Rivers Protectorate (1885–93), the Niger Coast Protectorate (1893–1900), and Southern Nigeria (1900–06) until the British administrative headquarters were moved to Lagos.
