Eguguojo (also known as Egunoju) was the Alaafin of Oyo during the sixteenth century.[1] It was during his reign that the capital city was moved from Oyo ile to Oyo Igboho (New Oyo), after a protracted battle with the Nupes and also as a result of internal fighting. Prior to the establishment of New Oyo, his grandfather had gone on an odyssey from Oyo ile to escape heat from palace officials.
