According to history, Okija, Ihiala, Ihembosi and Uli had one father called Achala, the son of Ogidi. This is why Okija is some times known as Okija – Achala – Ogidi.
According to same history, Okija was the first son: Ihembosi, the 2nd, Ihiala, the 3rd, and uli the 4th and last. Naturally, they have to choose things and break Kola in order of seniority. This is why Okija breaks Kola nut for all the towns in Ihiala LGA, the court belonging to these four related towns ,though situated at Ihiala, is known as Achala Town court up to today..
