Olumo Rock

The name Olumo means "God moulded it". The history of the rock dates back to the 19th century Oyo empire when Abeokuta was inhabited by the Egba people who found refuge at the Olumo rock.

The rock functioned as a tower of strenght for the Egba people in their wars to defend the new settlement as well as vantage point to monitor
the enemy's advance leading to eventual triumph in war.
Olumo rock is the most significant representation of the Egba nationalism. it symbolizes unity and freedom not just for the Egba's but for all
the residents of Abeokuta. Abeokuta means "under the rock"
