Go and teach your kids history in schools. That is one sure way of ensuring that history is sustained. Meanwhile, some of us are not exactly interested in this story. Trust me, I only read the heading (title, sort of)

Paying ishakole doesn't explain how Edo founded Lagos. Nigeria became a slave center for the European and Portuguese before evaluating, should dey now say they own Lagos because even the name Lagos was given to buy the Portuguese. They could try to twist the history as u lots are trying to steal our ancestral home simply because of the juicy enjoyment in Lagos.

YORUBAS SHOULD EMPLOY APC
CHIEF PROPAGANDIST AND BORN LIARS LIKE LAI MOHD .. TO REWRITE THE HISTORY OF LAGOS.
The new history can have lies such as:
1. Lagos colonized Nigeria and Africa.
2. Lagos is bigger than Nigeria
3. 90% oil Wells are located in Lagos.
4. Lord Lugards father was a lagosian.
ETC ETC

It has always been an Awori settlement and the Ijebus as well around the Epe, Ikorodu and some Lekki areas. The bini soldiers came over 100 years after the Awori had settled in the land. Much ado over nothing.

Anyway, Lagos is covered by Ogun, then Ondo. It seems God knew many strange tribes would try to covet the land and eledumare decided to protect it with two Yoruba states.

2nd picture is the tiny piece of land (coloured red) the Benin occupied when they arrived with their soldiers.
I've always told people that the real aborigines of Lagos are the Aworis and the Ijebus... Others in include the Ogus(Eguns) from Badagry and the Binis who forcefully occupied small portion of land on the island

Clear evidence that they never started Lagos just as the Oyinbo colonialists never started Lagos.

The Binis at the height of their power colonized and returned home, the Oyinbos also came, colonized and returned to their home.

The real owners remained.

Simple!

It remains a shame that there was even an attempt to use dishonest means to revise history and suggest that the original owners of the land are now the bini settlers. Haba!What a fraud!

It's so sad and it's a lesson to communities currently giving land to settlers to ensure that they keep records very well like our Yoruba forebears did. Kudos to our forebears for keeping accurate records for a period like this. They had the foresight that some of the descendants of the settlers may some day lie that they own the land.

But for these history books that documented who owns Lagos, none of our forebears would have ever proven to us that the had an inkling that some day the descendants of bini visitors in Lagos will some day covet and brazenly lie that they own Lagos. Ha! Aiye ma nika o.

Asari Dokubo was absolutely right in his account and his anger at the Oba of Benin was because the Oba of Benin even removed the assistance his Ijaw gave to the Benin who attacked that part of Yorubaland.

It's been one lie after another further diminishing the Benin in the eyes of many. From the bursting of the Benin lie that the Oba of Benin never leaves the palace , internet era came and exposed the blatant lie. Next was lie that they did not originate from Ile Ife and heads of past Oba of Benin were not buried in Ile Ife but the Yoruba elders were so clever to preserve the history and location in Ile Ife till date. The 3rd lie is the attempt to claim a land that does not belong to them not knowing that the Yoruba documented it well.

The only reason I think they lie in this manner is pride. Now pride has led to fall.

Below is a picture that shows how far behind the Oba of Benin is behind the Ooni of Ife. This picture, all other evidences including the Orun Oba Ado in Ile Ife and oldest history books is the triumph of history over lies. Check my signature for free stuffs!

Well Yorubas own Lagos today but the binis & ijaws were there before them. Even archeological artifacts found in places in Lagos gives evidence to that effect.

What's the big deal if Awori paid tax to Benins?
It has been established that Awori and Benins had war. The fact here is everything Lagos signifies Yorubas.
And the Benin history too, aren't they aboriginal Yorubas?
So what's the problem of everyone disrespecting Yorubas?

“War historians will describe what happened as seizure by conquest. That is a relationship that does not align with Oba of Benin’s claim of founding Lagos and of Benin being its source. You don’t wage a war against non-existent people. The fact of Lagos’s existence provoked the attack and subjugation from Benin forces.

This is logical and reasonable...thank God civilization did not allow portugal and UK to lay claims on Nigeria's ownership/foundation🤔🤕

War with who?

Do you have any evidence of a war with anyone on the land before the Benins named it Eko (camp)?

Even the Ogiso dynasty and Igodomigodo was founded by Ile Ife


grin

If Ooni of Ife turns up in benin and Claims the Throne and Kingdom of benin he too is also right

Ok, Let us look at the praise names of oba of benin

One of it is
Abieyuwa N'Ovbi Odua N'uhe
The son of the wealthy Odua of Uhe(Ife).
(Odua of Ife is the same as oduduwa of Ife)

Another of oba of benin's praise names is
Ovbi' Adimila
The son of Adimila
oduduwa was also known as Olofin Adimula
Which was his Title

Notice there is no mention at all of any Ekhalerderhan of Igodomigodo or izoduwa a whole Crown Prince of Benin that got lost and the renowned Accomplished Benin Palace Praise singers are not at all interested in his case
It can only be a lie,!
They did not mention and neither are they looking for the lost Ekhalerderhan .
izoduwa too is not happening anywhere in oba of benin's praise names but they called Oduduwa , the great Odua of Ife his Father

So with their own mouths they themselves have already given the evidence that fully demolished and destroyed their case which had no legs to stand on in the first place and have confirmed with your own Mouth that the oba of benin was indeed oduduwa's Son
There is nothing left to drag because it is settled

Forget about the first Oba of Benin

Even the Ogiso dynasty whose Ekhalerderhan Crown Prince they said got lost and Igodomigodo Kingdom itself that became Benin was founded by Obagodo an Ife Man sent with his entourage from Ile Ife

You see that entire Benin Kingdom , The Throne the Crown,and the Previous Igodomigodo Kingdom, Ogiso dynasty and Oba dynasty na Ile Ife born all of Dem!!!
