Ojude Oba 2017 Festival in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State
Ojude Oba is a festival which takes place annually the third day of the Eid-al-Adha or Sallah. Sons and daughters of Ijebuland with their family and friends gather at the pavilion opposite the palace to pay homage to the Awujale of Ijebuland. This year’s theme is Ojude Oba: A Rich Heritage For Ijebu Unity.
They converge in their different age group also known as ‘Regberegbe’ in their colourful attires from head to toe. The beautiful colours all over the arena makes it a carnival like festival.
The ‘Regberegbes’ was revived by the present Awujale, Oba Sikiru Kayode Adetona, Ogbagba II, for the continuous growth and development of Ijebuland
