About IKORODU OGA
Lagos State was created on May 27, 1967 and it was divided into 5 administrative divisions, Ikeja, Badagry, Ikorodu, Lagos (Eko) and Epe-IBILE. These divisions are what were later divided into 20 Local Government Areas (LGAs) with a further 37 Local Council Development Authorities (LCDAs) added.
The Ikorodu division is named after a very popular vegetable plant Odu that was found very plentiful around the area by the first settlers hence it was called Oko-Odu meaning Odu Farm which became Ikorodu.
The farmland was the first settlement of a Remo crown prince by the name Oga, who is said to be the founder of the town, hence the reference Ikorodu Oga. Ikorodu has Ikorodu Local Government and 5 LCDAs-Igbogbo-Baiyeku, Ikorodu North, Ikorodu West, Imota and Ijede.
The Ayangburen of Ikorodu Kingdom is the Paramount ruler of the Ikorodu Division and the Ayangburen is none other than His Royal Majesty, Alaiyeluwa Oba Kabiru Adewale Shotobi, Adegorushen V.
Ikorodu predominantly consists of the Ijebu and Remo groups and also the Eko-Awori population and the indigenes are mostly traders and farmers.
