The land’s primary economic activity is timber, cocoa and other mineral resources and is home to many saw mills. History has it that the founder, Onayelu, was a great hunter who hunted the Northern parts of Odo-Oluiwa; the present Ijebu ode, where he was a Prince. Following the sudden demise of his father and the subsequent controversial accession to the throne of his younger brother, the Ofiranoye while Onayelu was away hunting, he decided to migrate from Ijebu Igbo to settle permanently on the large expanse of land where he had been hunting and known today as Ijebu Igbo.
