Edo minority?? fraud from the pit of hell!! trying very hard to have a simple conversation with you guys... everyting I say here is back up with roboost evidence...Kehinde H. Thompson, i dont know where you stay or live or whether you grow up in Nigeria.. some poeple may take what I say as if i hate yorubas but NO. i have yoruba in-laws and cousins... sooooooooo much they did from during britian , colonialism and after the creation of Nigeria ,,, yourba own the whole Nigeria reparation ... their slave capturing mentality still here with them in Nigeria TILL DATE!..Edoighimioya Okporhu Uyiedoighiwi may be very unique in his contribution, yes, bros this is not to offend any one but what it is "yoruba commited the highest damage to the edo person, history, and culture , they still robbing and looting edo people their right, land, resources and position in nigeria! time to hit the nail on the head...the problem started from within and must be deal with from within say it the way it is..britain is no longer enslaving edo people but yoruba elites... discovery is recovery... again, see the worst fraud , crime in human history!! no oba of benin or any edoman among owners of oil blocks in nigeria and midwestern nigeria (great beninland) .. the reason they will do any thing to keep the true historica facts from edo people/ robbish edo monarch and women, disapprove major appointments of edo people in nigeria political and academic scene.. edo people have been held captive by the yoruba/hausa slaves to britain,, enough is enough!!! Yoruba elites are robbing many yorubas of their true self, history and family cause of political criminas..oduduwas are largely benin origin. so call yorubas today are mist and mest up. so many are not real yorubas as claimed or propagating.. many are related to the east/benin/deltas etc and not real yorubas.. real yorubas are not benins, they migrated from the the far west and north, basically settlers in Oyo.. yoruba history is a very simple one which slavery have the bigest portion.. the later composition of oduduwa., ife before Benin, Oyo empire all fabricate and to maintain their british inheritance called Nigeria (lugard cage). this are sacrid truth about yoruba people .. in Nigeria.
