I filled in and submitted a DS 160 electronic application form, where I selected Abuja as the interview location.

When booking my appointment, I realised that the first available date was 10 days after I required to be in the U.S. So, I checked the US consulate in Lagos and discovered that there were available dates that were convenient for my travel plan, so I chose one of those dates.

Would this limit my chances of getting my visa renewed?

In theory this should have no affect on the decision. Many people have changed their interview locations before and still been issued a visa.

If they’re really curious, you can just explain the situation. As long as you still meet all the requirements you should have no problem.
