High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Oba of Benin, or Omo N'Oba, is the oba or king of the Edo people or Benin Kingdom, the current capital is Benin City in modern day Nigeria, from 1180 until 1897. The title of 'oba' means king or ruler. The name Ile Ibinu, which literally means "house of quarrel", was sometimes used by people of Yoruba descendants to describe Edo people or their homeland. The Edo or Benin homeland (not to be confused with the modern day country of the Republic of Benin, formerly known as Dahomey), has and continues to be most significantly populated by the Edo (also referred to as Bini or Benin ethnic group). In 1897, the British 'Punitive Expedition' sacked Benin City and exiled Oba Ovonramwen, taking control of the area in order to establish the British colony of Nigeria. The expedition was mounted to avenge the killing of an official British delegation in 1896. The expedition consisted of indigenous soldiers and British officers. To cover the cost of the expedition, the Benin royal art was auctioned off by the British. The Oba was captured and eventually exiled until his death in 1914.
