About Oro-Ago:

Oro-Ago is a settlement located in the South-Eastern part of Kwara State of Nigeria. It is about One Hundred and Ten (110) kilometers to Ilorin the State Capital. Oro-Ago Districts are located in the Ifelodun Local Government Area of Kwara State. The District is a conglomeration of 7 dispersed settlements namely Omugo, Okedaba, Ajegunle, Owa, Irabon, Oro-Ago, and Oyate. 

The population is about 50,000 people. They speak Igbomina dialect. The town occupies approximately 800 square kilometers of land. The land is naturally fertile for agricultural activities in both plant and animal husbandry.


 Ajagungbade and Obobo are co-founders of the Oro-Ago Dynasty.

 Ajagungbade (a warrior) came from Ketu to settle at Ita-Ajagun near the present site of Oro-Ago about the middle of the fifteen century. There are presently fourteen wards (aku) in Oro-Ago. The current head of Oro-Ago known as the Oloro of Oro-Ago is the HRH Oba Johnson Olarewaju Dada; who was enthroned in 2014. May his reign brings much development to the land.

AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS:The natural vegetation consists of rain forest and wooded savannah. This mixture provided wide ranges of trees giving birth to sporadic sawmills in the land. A large variety of fruits are available in Oro-land. Importance is attached to cashew growing because the nuts are exported outside the community.

The other agricultural products are maize, guinea corn, cassava, sweet potato, beans, yam, and palm kernel.

The ancient people lived in the various cares of mountains that surround the community. Oreke, Aworoko, Okedaba, and Odia among others. These high grounds are endowed with mineral resources like clay, granite, (quartz, feldspars), and limestone, that could be exported as industrial material to provide employment and economic development for Oro-Ago.
