Amos Shackleford (1887 – 1954) was born in Jamaica and relocated to Lagos in 1913 aged 26 when joined the Nigerian Railway. Shackleford went back to Jamaica after his three year contract with Nigerian Railway expired.

He later returned to Nigeria in 1918 when he became head clerk for a Nigerian owned firm – S. Thomas and Co. During this period Shackleflord set up a bakery business that became very successful (hence the title BreadKing of Lagos) and expanded across Nigeria and into then Gold Coast (now Ghana). 


Shackleford is profiled in this documentary about Agege Bread 

Shackleford was thoroughly integrated into many aspects of Nigerian life. He was a member of Christ Church, Lagos, where he played the organ. He was allied with Herbert Macaulay and was a founding member and Vice President of the Nigerian National Democratic Party, serving on the Lagos Town Council from 1929 to 1938.

Shackleford provided moral and financial support to Nigeria’s campaign for independence.
