History of Iwo land

Iwo is a City in Osun State, Nigeria that is the seat of the Iwo Kingdom, a traditional state. The Iwo people, like all other people of Yoruba stock, are said to have belonged to Ile-Ife from where they migrated sometimes in the 14th century. The earliest settlement initiated by Adekola Telu a prince from Ife.

Adekola Telu was the son of the 16th Ooni of Ife a female called Luwo Gbagida. The only predicted land with the symbol of the parrots to locate where the promised land will be found which happens to be the present Iwoland. The City formerly part of old Oyo state was later separated and became one of the major townships in Osun State, Nigeria.

It has over 30 ancient and powerful Kings all under the Oluwo of Iwoland as the only Consenting Authority and first-class paramount Ruler in an area of 245 km² and a population of 191,348 (central city/Local Government) most populous Local Government in Osun State by the 2006 Nigeria National census figures.

PEOPLE OF IWOLAND

The people are primarily of Yoruba descent and were of African Traditional Religion until Islamic missionaries came and converted many to Islam. The Christian missionaries soon followed and with evangelism, both direct and through established secular schools converted many to Christianity.

Iwo people are, presently, a mixture of the three religions, with a higher population of Muslims than Christians, and still fewer traditionalists. Everyone living happily and harmoniously with one another, and usually joining the other in celebration of major religious festivities as every extended family has members in each religion.

Immigrants of different tribes who are employed and engaged in different trades also live amicably with one another with the locals.
