The Èkó(s) of the Oòduà (Yorùbá) Homeland.

Èkó-Ènde (Ìfẹ́lódùn LGA, State of Ọ̀ṣun)
Èkó-Àkéte (Lagos Island LGA, Lagos State)
Èkó-Àjàlá (Ìfẹ́lódùn LGA, State of Ọ̀ṣun)
Èkó – Efun ( Amongst The Olukumi of Delta state)

2021 Edition of the Ọ̀tín-Èkó Festival where the Ọ̀tín River is celebrated by the Èkó people around the River in Ọ̀ṣun.


Ọtín River is a very important one in Yorùbá history. It was the river that drowned the highest number of terrible invaders of the Homeland in the Jálumi war of November 1, 1878.
In fact, There’s atleast one ODU IFÁ that mentioned Èkó so tell us how Èkó isn’t Yorùbá word.
