In 1938 Enugu became the administrative capital of the Eastern Region.
The number of employed coal miners in Enugu grew from 6,000 (of mostly Udi men) in 1948 to 8,000 in 1958.
Both the Aro and Hausa migrated back and forth to what is now the city of Enugu and were considered foreigners to the area.In 1900 the Southern Nigeria Protectorate was established by the colonial administration of the British Empire.The discovery of coal by the colonialists led to the building of the Eastern Line railway to carry coal from the inland city to the port of Port Harcourt, a city created for this purpose located 151 miles (243 km) south of what was called Enugu Coal Camp.The massacre that came to be known as "The Iva Valley Shooting" "Zikisim" was a post World War II movement that was created out of admiration for Nnamdi Azikiwe who was a prominent nationalist of the National Council of Nigeria and the Cameroons (NCNC).
The shooting was right after a period of unrest when miners were angered by the belief that their full pay was being held back by the colliery management, a belief that was pushed by the nationalist press.
Enugu's population rose sharply with its industrialisation; the population of the city reached 62,000 in 1952.
