There are various versions of oral traditions of Agbarho origin. The compromise version however states that the children of Agbarho left Benin with their father during the terrible reign of the Ogisos with other Urhobo ethnic groups and lived temporarily in different places including some-where Ase district (near the river) before coming to settle in Orho-Agbarho (the main town of Agbarho) several centuries ago.
The book entitled, “The Urhobo people” edited by Onigu Otite (page 195) described the old city of Agbarho as “Big and Prosperous and by coordinating the various dialects of Urhobo today.
According to Professor Onigu Otite “The old city of Agbarho existed for many years and geographically it stands more or less in the very centre of Urhobo land, a suitable centre where East and West meet”.
This old city of Orho-Agbarho was later destroyed and deserted by internal strife, which made it broke up into its present many other towns of Agbarho of the present day. This desertion was however not permanent.
Before 1900 Agbarho people started trickling back but necessarily to their former compounds. The traditional history of the Agbarho Kingdom closely corroborates that of the origin of the Agbarho people.
After a spell of gerontocrates rule (rule by tile elders) at the central level in Agbarho, title holders called Ehovwore (singular Ohovwore) or chiefs were drawn from each town to rule the community at the centre. At the head of these chiefs was the OSUIVIE the KING and the leader of the rulers.
Agbarho is made up of 16 towns and villages with the headquarters at Orho-Agbarho with the population of about 500,000 peoples.
