Adeola Odutola (Ogbeni Oja) Lodge

This is Adeola Odutola (Ogbeni Oja) Lodge, Ijebu-Ode (built in 1939).

The late Queen Elizabeth II slept there in 1956, during her Official visit to Nigeria.

Queen Elizabeth II was scheduled to visit only Ibadan, Enugu and Kaduna as the regional capitals.

She requested her visit be rerouted to include Ijebu-Ode to enable her visit Chief Timothy Adeola Odutola, the Ogbeni Oja, her father’s friend who usually wined and dined with the royals at Buckingham Palace.

She passed a night at the Ijebu-Ode residence of the Ogbeni Oja.
