Ode Remo is a town in Ogun State.


Ode Remo's people are Yorubas from Ile-Ife, the Yorubas' cradle. They originated in the ancient city of Ile-Ilode Ife's and Iremo neighborhoods. They travelled through dense woodland, rivers, and streams until they arrived at a site on the Ijebu Waterside where they attempted to settle; this location is now known as "Ode Omi." However, the oracle, who served as a guide, advised them to continue on until they arrived at the current location where they settled. After migrating from the Ile-Ife quarters of Ilode and Iremo, the two names were used interchangeably until Ode Remo became the permanent name of this historical town.
