Author:Otite, OniguISNI
Periodical:Odý: Journal of Yoruba and Related Studies
Geographic term:Nigeria
Subjects:Okpe polity
Ughelli polity
Abstract:The Urhobo (Mid-western State of Nigeria) constitute twenty socially and territorially constiguous units. Each of these units is defined in terms of separate governmental and political structures and processes within a locally peculiar socio-cultural milieu. This article concerns two of the twenty Urhobo social units: the Okne kingdom which is now part of the Western Urhobo District Council area and maintains no tradition of kingship from Benin Kingdom, and Ughelli kingdom, a constituent part of the Central Urhobo District Council area, with tradition of kingship traceable to the kingdom of Benin.
