Ibadan

Ibadan, 
running splash of rust 
and gold – flung and scattered
among seven hills like broken
china in the sun.

John Pepper Clark

Ibadan (the city of brown roofs) is the capital of Oyo state and located in the South-Western region of Nigeria. It is one of the oldest of the Yoruba kingdoms founded in 1829 by Lagelu – a Yoruba Warlord and Generalissimo.
