This is what Kemi wrote in her diary on 7th August last year: Two days ago, we went to visit an Uncle in Idanre. First, we drove to Akure, the capital of Ondo State. Then we drove South for 10 – 15minutes until we reached Idanre. It is a pretty town with a beautiful hills round it.
Then next day, uncle took us right to the top of Oke-Idanre. We had to climb up hundred of steps to reach the peak. On the way there are five shades (resting places) where many visitors had written their names. We were glad to stop and have a rest several times.
At the top of the hill there were the ruins of an old town, including the palace of former Obas are their officials. There are abandoned houses and other buildings nearby. This is where the old town of Idanre used to be. Uncle said that many years ago, people from the valley used to run and hide in Oke Idanre and Oke Harun when raiders came to seize cattle and take people away as slaves.
We also saw the famous Agboogun footprint which is many years old. We all tried our feet in the foot print and found that they fitted its size. That was strange because our feet are not all the same size.
Uncle said that if your feet do not fit into the footprint you must be a bad person such as a witch.
