82 Division formally known as 4 Infantry Division came into existence in August 1975 following a reorganization of the Nigerian Army (NA) in the same year.

The 4 Infantry Division formally Lagos Garrison Organization (LGO) was created and located at Abalti Barracks, Lagos in January1964. The LGO was responsible for all garrison administrative duties until its disbandment and in its place 4 Infantry Division was created and located at Ikeja - Lagos.

In 1981 following another reorganization of the NA, the 4 Infantry Division was changed from an Infantry to a composite division and moved to Enugu. What is known today as 82 Division of the Nigerian Army has passed through a lot of changes in nomenclature. The Division has been commanded by some of the best and experienced officers of the Nigerian Army the first being Maj Gen DE Obada while the current GOC is Maj Gen SU Atawodi .
