OFFA


Offa is a city located in Kwara state. Though the Indigines are predominantly Yorubas but geographically it is not situated in South-West like most Yoruba speaking states. It is located in Central Nigeria.

It is known for the cultivation of sweet potatoes (anömö or odunkun) which also formed part of the eulogy (oriki) of the Town.

The ancient tradition which Offa is known for is Wrestling. This came to being as a result of the long period of WRESTLE that occurred between two brothers who on the course of sharing a roasted potato, which was not equally divided in the farm.

These two brothers were alone in the farm and there was nobody to separate them aside the ridges and shaft of corn on the farm.
