In Response To: Re: Oyo by Zaragemca ()

The visualization of Oduduwa,(which was followed by others Yorubas),was to send their decendants,(relatives), to form their own villages and through the fomentation of agricultural and manufacturing products,to create a trade,(societies were created which were in charge of conducting the caravans to sell products to the West and to the East as far as Iboland)...To that effect, beside,Ile/Efe and Benin,(in actual Nigeria),villages were created like;Ketu,Dahomey, Ijeha,Onitsha,Ekiti, Asaba, Warri, Ondo,Agbor,Issele Icu, Idah, Itsekiti,Owo,etc...From the begining the Yorubas were against the raiding of slaves out of Africa,(through the north/corridor,first,and later the transatlantic voyage).They need the people to grow the agriculture,manufacturing,construction and military enterprises,(in time of war),and the rest of people as customers...and it was established that Yorubas, could not be set up as slave,neither be sold to the traders,so the permanet raiding of slave done by the,'Aro Society',(Ibibios and Igbos),brought a continual fight of Yorubas to the be continued.Dr. Zaragemca
