His name, phonetically written by Yoruba language-speakers as Odùduwà and sometimes contracted as Ooduwa, Odudua or Oòdua is today venerated as “the hero, the warrior, the leader and father of the Yoruba race. Through a war lasting many years, Oduduwa was able to defeat opposing forces of the 13 indigenous communities of Ife to become King of Ife and formed these communities into a single Ife unit.
