The Balogun of Eko, Abisoye Oshodi, has faulted the claim by the Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II, that the Binis founded Lagos.
The monarch who was in Lagos State to visit Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Sunday had said, ‘’It is in the history books that the Binis founded Lagos. When some people will hear it now, they will go haywire, what is the Oba saying there again? But it is true. Go and check the records. Maybe not all over Lagos as we know it now but certain areas in Lagos, maybe the nucleus of Lagos, was founded by my ancestors. The Oba of Lagos will say so.”
Reacting to the monarch’s comment, Oshodi in a video shared online on Tuesday said the monarch’s comment was not true.
