OWU TOWNSHIP / COMPOUNDS

Originally, Owu had 3 townships namely Owu, Erunmu and Apomu.
In the reign of Oba Odeleye (1993 2003) the number of Owu townships in urban area of Abeokuta expanded to 22 and this eased the administration for Owu tremendously.
Alakosos who now assist the Oba in governing the 22 townships were introduced in 200I and the experiment is working out well. Each township comprises varying number of Compounds.
