The Ugbo people were also known as “Forest people” due to the way they appear in their several attacks on the people of Ile-Ife. They are always covered in raffia leaves and people of Ile-Ife believed that they are spirits from the forest. Ile-Ife suffered constant attacks from raids from the people of the Ugbo tribe who kidnapped the women and children from the city.
