OUR MISSION
HOSTORY OF UROMI
UROMI
The correct name is URONMUN
Uronmun is the largest and most populated Land
in Esanland.  Uronmun was formed by two waves of
settlers from BINI between 900 and 1400AD;
during the reign of the OGISOS, and 1460, during
the reign of Oba EWUARE.  These early Bini
settlers were either fugitives fleeing
persecution and the harsh rule of the OGISO or
were criminal hiding in the dense jungle
escaping justice.
The founder of the first settlement in URONMUN
was EGBELE, the second son of OAKHA, one of Oba
EGBEKA’S wivies.(1370-1400), Oakha’s other two
sons- ASOKPODUDU and the third brother settled
in UZOZOGAINGHAIN of Idinegbon-UZEA.
The second wave of organized mass emigration
from BINI, was around 1460, during the reign of  
Oba EWUARE the selfish. His attempt to stop the
emigration of BINIS to the present day ESANLAND
was the MOAT he built around the city. Most of
these immigrant during this wave were from
IDUMOZA of BINI City.
Uronmun, is divided into three groups recognized
as: OKHIODE, OBIRUAN and OBIYUAN.
OKHIODE consist of:
Eguare   Egbele,   Onewa,   Utako,   Unuwazi,   
Arue.
OBIRUAN consist of::
Ebhoyoman, Efadion,  Ekhue, Ubierumun,  Eror,  
Obeidu, Uwalor, Idomoza, Ivue
OBIYUAN consist of:
Ukoni,  Amedeokhian, Awo.
The leader of the second wave OGHU and his
followers settled in IVUE.
In 1463, Oba Ewuare decided to relinquish the
futile attempt to force the fleeing BINS that
settled in Esan. He decided to confer on the
various community leaders the title of ENIJIE.
Oghu could not attend. He despatched his junior
brother, ICHESAN to attend.  At the Oba decree,
all attendees were made OJIE and the title is
non transferable.
Upon return to Uronmun, to avoid embarrassing
his older brother, ICHESAN moved from IVUE to
present day EGUARE.
ICHESAN was succeeded by  AGBA to IKENOA to
EHENOA to IKHIVABHOJERE to OKUOYE to AKHIZE to
IKHIMIGBALE  to UWAGBO to EDIALE to AKHILOMEN to
OKOLO to OKOJIE (OGBIDI) to UWAGBALE to
EIDENOJIE OKOJIE II to OMELIMEN EIDENOJIE I to
ANSLEM EIDENOJIE II.
