About the Book

From Abraham to Samuel is a historical narrative that tells the story of the founding of Mobalufon near Ijebu-Ode in Western Nigeria and the history of the Demuren family, spanning six generations from the nineteenth to the twenty-first centuries. The author, in his inimitable way, has woven the story of the Demuren family around the life and times of his father, who trained in England in the forties and became the first engineer produced by Mobalufon, and his grandfather, who ascended the throne of his forefathers as the Mogun iseja. The story of the founding of Mobalufon a thousand years ago, after the migration of the Ijebu people from Wadai in the Nubian desert between Upper Egypt and Sudan to its present location in Western Nigeria, is a captivating one. From Abraham to Samuel is a page turner and a veritable source of information for anyone interested in the history of the Demuren family, the development of Ijebuland, and record of political, social, and economic life in Nigeria before and after independence from Great Britain in 1960.
