The Ogun River is a waterway in Nigeria that discharges into the Lagos Lagoon.

The river starts in Oyo State near Shaki and flows through Ogun State into Lagos State. The river is crossed by the Ikere Gorge Dam in the Iseyin local government area of Oyo State. The river passes through the Old Oyo National Park, providing recreational facilities for tourists.[1] In rural and local areas where the river flows through, the river is used for bathing, washing and drinking. It is also used as a drain for mostly organic wastes from abattoirs located along the river's course.
