According to the Guardian Nigeria, Bayobab, a pan-African provider of digital connection solutions, collaborated with MTN Opco to install a 45,000-kilometer undersea cable in the Mopo-Onibeju Lekki neighborhood of Lagos. The Nigerian Equinix Company, MainOne, is in charge of the project’s Akwa Ibom phase, which is situated in Ibeno in the state of Akwa Ibom, south of Nigeria.

According to CEO Frédéric Schepens, there have been six landings in five nations, with this one being the fourth. These include South Africa and three locations in West Africa: Ghana, Nigeria, and Côte d’Ivoire. He added that, on an equal and fair basis, Nigerian service providers will have access to top-notch capacity in carrier-neutral data centers or open-access cable landing stations.
