Yorubas not originally from Ile-Ife — Oluwo

 

Oluwo of Iwo land, Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, on Monday, said Yorubas are not originally from Ile-Ife, adding that the history of Yorùbá as a tribe is beyond Oduduwa and the city of Ile-Ife in Osun State.

The monarch, who made this known in a statement in Osogbo, therefore charged historians working on Yoruba ancestral home to be objective in their research and documentation, saying Yoruba ancestral home is beyond Ile-Ife.

According to him, limiting research work to Ile-Ife is putting a limitation to Yoruba far reaching historical greatness and accomplishments, emphasising that Yorubas are synonymous with distinction, excellence and greatness.

Oluwo noted that the first man created was Yoruba with empirical facts. He said Oduduwa migrated to Ile-Ife and launched the traditional system of governance with crown as a symbol of authority.

Oba Akanbi challenged professors of Yorubas to dig further on the origin and originality of Oduduwa as a descendant of ‘Ola Mu Iru Dudu Yi’, being shortened to Lamurudu.

He said, “Yorubas are naturally from greatness. Humanity started from us. We are the descendants of Lamurudu, the first mightiest man to build the tallest house. Our history is beyond Oduduwa and Ile-Ife. Limiting our history to the duo is tantamount to restraining our ancestors from great accomplishments and achievements of the past.
