Sometimes, I wonder why it took so long for folks within Edo to come out and tell the real stories the most prominent Bini historian wrote.

Pathological liars have distorted his great work just to sit on the shoulder of their Oba father and claim he is their son.

We have heard the truth for so many generations from the Urhobo to Ijaw to Ishan prominent son, Enahoro (personally).

Yet, they keep on repeating the same lies.

Please, let us move on so that we can hear more from other Edo people. The story of Ekhalerhan from Ughoton was just as moving and compelling because he was popular there and no soldier from Bini would dare capture him among his people until his death.

Please let us hear from more people in the area and learn history of our people.

Thanks.



There is nothing like Oduduwa or Ikalerdahan in our land.

Oduduwa who rule in Ife is from Sudan close Egypt

Is Ogun not a Youruba man that transcend into a deity.
The yourubas even dedicate a state to venerate the god. You are ignorant and stupiid.

Which gods or idols did you people in Benin serve.

Oromila
Ogun
Shango
Osun
Owosuoba
Ososomaye
Ayelala
Ogboni ..cult
Osokpikan ..cult
Aye .. cult
Eiye..cult.
Azigidi

These are all yoruba deities, shrine and cult


And you foolish Benin people are still doubting if your Oba is a Youruba man.

Foolllls

What is the meaning of Oba in your language?

Do I have to waste my time debating with an imbecíle like you? I have told you to go and ask Oba of lagos. Just so you know; it was the Bini’s that started using the word Oba. Secondary school dropout go and ask your father; maybe he will have an idea.

The emboldened is very interesting. Half Ondo how?

Thanks for asking.
By 'Half Ondo', it literally means just as it sounds. They are halfway between Esans and Ondo Yorubas culturally.
Sobe was even formerly in Ondo state but was later on transferred to Edo. Arimogija and Ijagba (Uzagba) are still in Ondo, Uzebba, Otuo, Ikhin, Okpuje etc on the other hand are in Edo but are like Ishan-Yoruba mixes in everything.

Linguistically they speak Emai, Otwa, Ora etc and other edoid micro dialects, although some can be heavily laden with Yoruba words. like in Otuo or in Sobe.
The cuisine border isn't as sharp between Edo and Ondo to begin with, they both have a thing called black soup, egusi and pounded yam is always a staple... not the amala ish though~ that is the 'Oyo type' of Yoruba., other general meals are the same , except those I don't know of. They are quite sw/yoruba-philic, except for a few that hv spent their entire lives in places like Port Harcourt. Dele Momodu is a native of Ihievbe but claims SW. Olusegun aganga former minister is also Owan, people don't even know.

I know amala isn’t widespread in Eastern Yorubaland so that one’s no shock to me. How are they re. religious affiliation? Islam’s unheard of in Ondo State but there’s more ground for it the further East one ventures into Edo State. Or are Oras also affiliated with Ondos re. religion?

I hope you don’t mind these questions. It’s an interesting discussion.

Owan East has more Muslims and it is more difficult to call the majority. Owan west has more christians than muslims, if you go to places like Warrake or Ivbiaro in Owan east, you will think you are in tiny versions of Ilorin.. soo, way more islamic than Ondo in those parts.

Some like 'Ikao have an oral history of founding fathers directly from Ife rather than Benin via Ife or Benin directly during the time of Ozoluwa like you hear in the rest. Also among the Iulehas (Uzebba) who are the largest clan in Owan west, they trace their origins to a man called Irimo~ Some accounts say he was a son of Oba Ozoluwa, some say he was from Ijebu-Ode via Ile-Ife. Whatever it is, they are clearly Edo-oid.

I've always wondered. They are in Owan West but I have never seen them refer to themselves as "Ora". Would you know what their sub-ethnic group they consider themselves to be? Esan possibly? I've always looked at them as a border community between Esan West and Owan West.
Oga, Ozalla people are firmly Ora. I have met several of them, who are proud of their Ora heritage. Their language, culture, names and tradition are totally Ora. Ask their elders.

sniper77:
The People of Ozallas' history can be traced to Ora but they do not refer to themselves as ora people cos they were banished and exist as their own clan.

Prince Uguan had a son who came out with his legs during childbirth according to history which was regarded as a taboo then. That occurrence was referred to as Uza. The child founded Ozalla clan and they are a part of Owan West L.G.A.
Banished from...where? When? shocked I have met tons of Ozalla people who firmly refer to themselves, as Ora. So your story is rather illogical. Some of them trace their town's origin to a son of Oba Ozolua.

Islam is NOT unheard of, in the eastern part of Yoruba land. shocked Where did you get that from? ! I worked in the Akoko area of Ondo state, and it was common to see whole indigenous families, that were Muslims. Names like Akadiri or Kadiri were common. The Olukare of Ikare-Akoko is a prime example.

Akoko people are essentially an Edoid stock of Ondo Yoruba so it's no surprise the Yoruba subgroups that have greater admixture of Edoid tribes have Islamic leanings.

It's about as rare to find a Muslim from Ondo or Ekiti State as it is Enugu or Ebonyi States. Fact.

Again, you are spreading flimsy opinions as fact. I went to school in Ondo state, and worked there for some years before coming back to Lagos. undecided

It is NOT rare to find indigenous Muslim families in Ondo State. If you have been in Ondo state during Eid-el-Kabir or any of the Muslim festivals, you would see huge population of indigenous Muslim families coming out to pray at the Eid grounds. sad

Ask any community in Ondo state to tell you where their 'Eid grounds or fields are located, they would readily tell you. They pronounce it as Yiddi. So please stop postulating about what you know nothing about. shocked

From Ondo, to Ile-Oluji, to Okitipupa, Ilara-Mokin, Ifon etc, there are many Indigenous families that are Muslims. In fact, many families have a mix of both Christians and Muslims, and they are very tolerant of each other. undecided They are also quite protective of one another.

Ekiti state also has a huge population of indigenous Muslim families, despite the fact that they have a large Christian population in the state. But they are not fanatics.

And people from both religions live side by side within the same family, and celebrate festivals together. undecided In some families, you cannot even tell who is a Christian or Muslim in a family, as they do not flaunt the differences between their religions. They believe in 'live, and let live.'

” Excluding Muslims from the first three important appointments announced by the governor is shocking and highly disturbing to all Muslims in the state”, he said.

The group said Muslims in the state constituted about 40 per cent of the Ekiti State population, and added that the governor was given their total support during the governorship polls.

I said according to history Prince Uguan banished a son he had who later founded ozalla clan.
Prince Uguan was the father of OraEkpen whose sons established the six clans of ora namely Ohia Ora,ovbiokhuarin Ora,Evbiobe Ora, Uhonmora,Oke Ora(Oke Old and Oke new),Eme Ora.
I also emphasized that the history of the ozalla people can be traced to Ora.Prince Uguan later became an Oba in the old benin kingdom.He was known as Oba Ewuare Ozolua.

Their are so many books written on the history of the ora people. And if you ask the elders you will get varied responses on how ozalla was founded. The key thing is the ozalla people came from Ora.
