MY VISIT TO OLUMO ROCK, ABEOKUTA, OGUN STATE, NIGERIA
Olumo rock is a massive outcrop of granite rocks of primitive formation from which Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State, Nigeria derived its name.
The rock is a historical monument that served as shelter and fortress for the Egba people who in 1830 had settled under the rock during the intercity wars. The rock is a monument of Faith, a Unity source of strength and unfailing protection for the Egba people.
