Edo State is an inland state in western Nigeria. It is distinguished as one of the prominent highland regions of Nigeria, the area under consideration is bounded in the north and east by Kogi State, in the south by Delta State and in the west by Ondo State.
Among the northwestern Edo, men in Otuo between the ages of 45 and 50 wear masks and headdresses in festivals held to mark the entry of these men into the group of community leaders. These masks are used for a season lasting five years and are thereafter destroyed.
Another opportunity is here for you to take part in Africa's finest street festival this December. You can't afford to miss this rich and ancient culture.
