Both names are synonymous with second hand things which are from overseas. Does anyone know hw the name came to represent the above coz I know tokunbo as a yoruba name and okirika as a town in rivers state.
Pls enlighten me.

yoruba is a tonal language where one word can have more than one meaning.
