Who knew 'Ikeja' was an abbreviation?

According to the reports on Wikipedia, IKEJA which is the capital of Lagos state is actually an abbreviation for Ikorodu and Epe Joint Administration. It was coined by colonial administrators for ease of administration. It is also said to be from Ikehdia a Benin word meaning Watch Station

Rubbish. Ikeja has been existing and has had obas from time immemorial. A hunter from Ijebu was the founder of the chieftaincy in ikeja. What does this stupid ikorodu n epe thing mean? Asking silly questions without verifying or attempting to make research. Blogger
