The correct name is OKHUELE-ESAN, a name which has overemphasized the connection there is between Okhuele-Odua (Okhuodua) and Okhuesan. From the name it would appear as if there was one Okhuele which split into Okhuele of Odua and Okhuele of Esan. That would be a wrong impression for the only connection between the two places which are quite distinct and separated by a large community – EMU – is ELONMON, the Princess from Benin City who eloped with the audacious OKHIRARE founder of Okhuodua. This woman after the death of Okhirare, married
OLU, one of the junior sons of Izibi or Ijesan of Udo.
