Available in E-book and Paperback Versions

This book is an abridged version of my Ph.D. dissertion submitted to and defended at Kogi State University Anyigba. The core essence of this book is to bring to lime light the trends on the Social, Political and historical developments that ocurred in Okunland of North- Central Nigeria over a period of about a century. The efforts exerted on this work is to bring to fore the people of Okunland and her history, which has not been given enough research and world exposure, due to acute shortage of written materials which are common with most ‘mini’ States of Nigeria, which OkunLand was one. It is my view therein, that this book will be of an immense value to scholars and students of history as well as the general public that are interested in Okun history
