On Olumo Rock 2
Olumo Rock was the hide out of the Egba people during the 19th Century war with The Dahomean Dynasty in present day Cotonou, Benin. The people hid in the rocks because it was prophesied by their Oracle that it was the only way they could survive. Our guide took us round the living quarters of the people inside the rock.
The holes in rock were made from grounding cereals and stuff in them. But folklore has it that the rock was naturally or supernaturally made like that.
