Hello,

I've found some Admin2 for Nigeria that seem to be duplicated:

Yauri Local Government Area (949209
Yauri (7730013)

Koko/Besse Local Government Area (9485472)
Koko-Besse (7873915)

Isiala Ngwa North Local Government Area (9485480)
Isiala-Ngwa North (7932087)

Isiala Ngwa South Local Government Area (9485481)
Isiala-Ngwa South (7730382)

Ogu/Bolo Local Government Area (9485477)
Ogu Bolo (7730136)

Ifako-Ijaiye Local Government Area (9485475)
Ifako/Ijaye (7910346)

Oshodi-Isolo Local Government Area (9485473)
Oshodi/Isolo (7910352)

Bursari Local Government Area (9485484)
Borsari (7730050)

Makurdi Local Government Area (9485482)
Markurdi (7932059)

Buruku Local Government Area (9485483)
Bukuru (7729994)

Mbaitoli Local Government Area (948547
Mbatoli (7729953)


From what I've seen, all the ones with "Local Government Area" in the name should be removed, since they don't have a valid admin2 code in the Hierarchy.

Also noticed that some of the "good" records had the original name changed by the same user. From Bursari to Borsari, Makurdi to Markurdi, Buruku to Bukuru, Mbaitoli to Mbatoli.

I checked these sources for the right names:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Local_government_areas_of_Nigeria
http://www.waado.org/NigerDelta/Nigeria_Facts/States_LocalGovtAreas.html
