Thank you for finding time to visit our website which we believe will give you better insights into the people of this great Esan Community.
Ebudin is the ancestral home-town of the Children of a great warrior- Pa. Oboh the Great, who was said to have migrated from “Ora”, in Owan West Local Government Council of the present Edo Sate and other people who were said to have later migrated to join Pa. Oboh and his family from some other distant communities in Edo state and all around the black Africans.
Not much can be said here of the family background of Pa. Oboh the Great, who founded Ebudin. However, oral tradition has it, and as it is well-known by the people of Ebudin, that Pa. Oboh the Great had three sons to whom he named three of the now seven quarters in Ebudin after their names and gave them authority to administer and maintain peace, law and order within the community. The names of the children are Ogbe (the first son), Igun (the second son) and Oghale (the third son) and the youngest.
All the children and their off-springs were very enterprising and were quick at meeting up with most things that define a man. They were good farmers, Palm-Wine tappers and also good in crafts. It was therefore not difficult for them to be noticed and their industrious nature soon spread to all the neighbouring communities. These endeared them to indigenes of other communities; some of whom then chose to relocate to Ebudin and were allowed to settle there too. Such other migrants were allowed to settle in the quarters now known as: Ohoghe, Iguizi, Arua, Ididigba and Obhiagor.
Given the humble and liberal nature of Pa. Oboh the Great, he gave full rights of citizenship also to all other immigrants as those of his sons. He however ensured that basic rights to his own family entitlements were not abdicated to other immigrants. He made sure his true children were given due recognition in all general gathering of the entire community.
This site was created in memory of our late mother- Madam Victoria Ejalenrie Isele, who transited to Glory on 9th March, 2013. She was the wife to the current Odionwele of Ebudin- Pa. Augustin Aimuomonfia Isele. She will forever be remembered for her deep love for the people of Ebudin.
We shall endeavour to make this site very educative, informative and interactive.
