Why Minority Tribes Say They Come From IFE by babasolution: 7:24pm On Apr 14
The misconception of many minority tribes that they migrated from IFE comes from the fact that many minority tribes have the concept of Oduduwa in their culture also.

Many minority tribes that claim origin from IFE have historical concept of Oduduwa, with different names such as odudurudu in the Akoko-edo zone,idu or ekalerdan in Benin,Oduduwa in igala zone, also in urhobo down to the Igbo ,ijaw zone.

These groups of cultures have the Oduduwa concept along with the Yoruba.

Thus creating a misconception that they come from IFE.

What is not taken to account is that the concept of Oduduwa or the personality itself might be from a non Yoruba culture, it might be a borrowed concept by the Yoruba.

The concept of Oduduwa might be have been borrowed by the Yorubas as they claim he was a stranger.

The person they claim to be Oduduwa might not even be the original.

There is claim that some of the oldest fossils n relics were found in IFE or Yoruba land but what isn't considered is that there hasn't been much digging especially in non majority tribe zones, the majority tribes takes all the shine in NIG.

Many minority tribes are far older than the majority tribes.

Back up your nonsense with evidence next Time.

Edo will first piss on the grave of Oduduwa before they accept they came from him or his lineage.

It is actually the other way around.

Every Edo I know believes the Yorubas originated from the Great benin kingdom.

They're different evidence to this 😁😁😁

I wanted to reply the Op first but I think you need the reply more...

Every Edo you know?.. From where Omo Igbo?... Why do you like lying?.

Yoruba have always been specific about owning the crown of Benin Oba.. The current Oba of Benin on his coronation call himself the son of oranmiyan and grandson of oduduwa. He put clause on everything he said by saying the Benin people believe Oduduwa is one Elkerhadan, the bannish prince of Benin..

Yoruba is not claiming the whole Edo but Benin specifically.. Ask the ogiso family, they'll tell you the truth.. The Oba of Benin is a Yoruba man.. Oranmiyan, a Yoruba man established the Oba dynasty of Benin. He sack Ogiso and establish the Oba dynasty, this is a historical facts that even Oba of Benin and Ogiso families don't deny..

Modern attempt to distort history by claiming Oduduwa is a bannished Benin prince has failed already.. There's no evidence, it's just a story created in the 1970 to downplay Yoruba influence in Benin.. No work pre 1970 that lay claim to this...

I hope one day your hatred for Yoruba will not lead you to commit suicide...

You only live to denigrate Yoruba by claiming what you're not, aren't you ashamed?..

That was why when Benin's Ogiso dynasty got into trouble it was to to Ile Ife they returned for a new king and dynasty

Lagos is called Eko for a reason 😁😁

Obagodo of Ile Ife Founded Benin and it's Ogiso dynasty
Eko is short for Ereko which means field in Yoruba
Erekosun means Island in Yoruba.
Ereko market is still on Lagos Island till Today .
Osun State has Eko Ajala Eko Ende and Eko Onde
Lagos Island was Eko Aromire which the Portuguese corrupted to Korame

Uhe might not be IFE, there's,uhe in igala area.
But whatever the case,Benin developed in its own unique identity different from any Yoruba identity, no Yoruba state was as organised and developed like Benin through out history

Ile Ife is Uhe
Oranmiyan left from the Present Ile Ife

There's no certainty in this IFE tale,some Yoruba historians, even traditional historians disprove it,eg I was listening to an owo traditional historian who disproved the oromiyan tale,he said Oduduwa had only two sons,the oba of Benin and the olowo of owo,he said oromiyan was a warrior SLAVE.

Who do we then believe?

The true history of Oduduwa has not yet been deciphered,that is why I believe, he probably wasn't even Yoruba and might be from a minority tribe and came to Yorubaland has a stranger

I wonder when new generations of Bini accept Yoruba civilized your igodomigodo kingdom.

Someties I ask reason Bini use a lot of Yoruba words in their daily activities for communication in their dictions and Yoruba do not use Bini's.

Even, Ologuu/Ologun/Olu-ogun, a royal Yoruba name which stands for "lord of war" is also a praise nameof Oba Bini, which is not used for anyone in Bini land except the Oba only.

Infact,it is a funny reading your claim that you have not grip of the fact that Ogiamien families in Bini land are the original owners of Igodomigodo turned Bini.

Furthermore,Ohen Okun the head chief and chief priest of Oloku(of Yoruba in origin) state that in the account of 1486-1506, of Bini--Portuguese relationship affirm, Ekarleradan founded Gwatto in eleventh century and died in Gwatto.
