Even Uthman dan fodio fought against the North, but the North is now united, that's why they are dominating Nigeria. Ojuckwu dragged igbos to senseless war that got over 3Million of them killed, yet they put that behind them, forgave him and still celebrated him. While sensible Tribes are uniting to be Stronger and dominate other races, some is posting useless Yorubas history that further divides us. Past Yorubas historians are too narrow minded trying to get local glory for their towns, there are plenty great War Histories that should be written about Yorubas United Military Intelligence. I've not read a single History, except short writeups, about Jalumi war of 1835 and Ajashe/Oshogbo War of 1840. For this 2 Historical Wars, Yorubas Military Intelligence and merciless Soldiers came together from Ekiti, Oyo, Ondo, Egba, Ibadan, Ijesha, etc... to wage a fierce War against the advancing Hausa/Fulanis massive troups and slaghteted them all once and for all. They never returned to try Yorubas again after that 1840 War. If not for the Unity displayed by the Yorubas then, all Yoruba Lands would have been enslaved like Ilorin and had Emirs installed instead of our wonderful Obas as we know it today. Yorubas should stop trying to dominate themselves, they should join hands and dominate their enemies and conquer the World, that's what sensible Tribes do. I'm suspecting that an igbo created this thread to bring back disUnity among Yorubas that are already Uniting and getting stronger. GOD is watching you. Whatsoever a man sow, that he shall reap. You sow discords and problems among other People....

Please stop yapping like an illiterate.

Ijebu impeding Ibadan from trade and yet they need to ally with the Brits? Who really then was the trade starving Ibadan or the Brits? And if there were so invincible as you claim, why did they need to ally with the Brits?

Now let me tell you about facts, before the Brits, there was the Ekiti war that had Awujale Fidipote to send Balogun Onafowokan to wage war in Ibadan. That particular king was vehemently against the order of things then and wanted what was rightly due to him on his own land. That was how the Kuku name came into prominence. Ijebus were the first to start using arms which gave them an advantage over the rest of Yoruba land which saw even the Ooni send an emissary to Awujale Fusngbuwa when the Owu were pummeling the Ife, not Ibadan that you claim had a stronger military might. It was the Ijebus that help finish off the Owus which is why they are in that part of Ogun state today. The Ooni was about to lose his kingdom and it was the Awujale of that time that made Ifes not to tell sorry tales about what could have befallen their forefathers in time past.

To add to it, it was Balogun Kuku who sold arms to Ibadan and it was his turncoat that saved Ibadan from being pummeled further. It is all in history, please go and read up.

It may interest you to know, Ijebu was immuned through out the various wars that plagued Yorubaland not until the British came. Not Ibadan that was assaulted by the Alaafin and became what it is by the combined efforts of Ijebu,Owu,Egba warriors for it to stand as what it is today. There is even a district in Ibadan that belongs to the Ijebus as a result of the wars and you say they were invincible? Show me a place in Ijebu where any other tribe holds a district in it.

I have the links if you want.

How many people have you seen me insulted to conclude I lack home training? I have only insulted you so far because your submission was an insult however disguised it was.

I know where Ijebu is situated on a map and I am telling you if it weren't for the British and the tuncoat of an Ijebu warrior, Ibadan would have been brought to heel and Ibadan wouldn't have been what it is if it weren't for the combined warriors including that of the Ijebu warriors who sold arms!

Sorry for the insult. You have no idea how deep and far the injury of that war had on the Ijebus and particularly the Awujale of the time.

Lol, what do you mean by Owus of obasanjo?

There are Owus everywhere except Ekiti and Ondo. .

The Owus in ijebu migrated there after the war just like the Owus in abeokuta, The Owus in badagry, Owu ikosi in lagos etc

Only Owu kuta in Osun state and Owu isin existed before the war.

There's an annual convention that brings all Owus together. . It's called Ruop, Royal Union of owu people

It was last hosted by Owu abeokuta in Ogun.

Nobody is hung over it but it is insulting for someone to say Ibadan was never conquered when it was the British using one as a tool against the other. At the end of the day, aren't we seen as the same today? And the dude is talking about trade like the main trade in the Ibadan area wasn't about slaves! It was so huge that a woman grew so much reputation on her cruelty and her dealings of slave, speaking of Efunsetan here.

If it is the same Owu, it will be as a result of placating the displaced people not because they warred with Ijebu and took that place as conquest.

The Owus ran out of their heavily fortified city about 1826. They escaped through their southeastern gate in groups and entered their assailant territories through Ijebu Igbo and spread southward, settling in places like Ikija, Omu, Ayepe and other places. However, the main body of Owu escapees went towards the new settlement of Ibadan

. It is important to state that the present Orile Owu is the same place as Owu Ipole, earlier referred to, where Owus from Iwo and other places resettled in the early 20th century.

The main body of escapees from Ibadan marched across Ogun river and finally arrived at Oke Ata near Abeokuta where Sodeke and other Egba leaders persuaded them to settle about 1834. Again, Owu fought side by side with Egba in the Makun and other wars against Ado Odo and Dahomey in 1842-45. Owu contingents fought and routed Awori at Itori, Yobo, Ifo, Atan, Ota and also occupied those places till today.

Yes, Owu people had fought wars, won battles and settled in very many places between the Niger river and the sea (Owus in Lagos State; Epe, etc.), yet their main stream had settled among the Egbas in Abeokuta BUT, THEY ARE NOT EGBAS, neither are they lJEBUS. (See Johnson’s “History of the Yorubas, p.18). Owu settlements in Ijebu and Abeokuta were not as a result of direct battles or victory over them, but mostly on friendly terms.

Thank you, I believe we are saying the same thing.

Now the Ijebus are even decent enough to allow Owus into their territory and not beat chest on never being conquered. I hope lawani can learn a thing or two about what is relevant and what isn't.
