ENA CHAIRMAN WELCOME

PROUDLY EGBAS

The Egba were originally residing around the  Old Oyo Kingdom,  became independent following the spectacular collapse of Oyo in the first half of the 19th century. Wars with the Dahomey, in which the Egbas were successful partly due to the protection afforded by the Olumo Rock, led to the founding of the city of Abeokuta, which literally means "under the rock".

The Egba nation is made up of the following sub-divisions - the Ake, Owu, Oke Ona and Gbagura each with its own king (historically, the Egba nation is made up of four divisions; Ibara, though geographically located in Abeokuta, is part of Yewaland). >>>Read More “Who Are the Egbas”
