The plates third place of stoppage was at the outskirts of Abeokuta towards Lagos. Within the further seventeen days of the peoples sojourn at this point one of them who was a very great hunter had fallen in love with the vegetation of the area because of the large number of game he was able to kill. He therefore stayed behind when the group moved on after the plate shifted base again. The mans name was OSHO ARO-BI-OLOGBO-EGAN.

       The settlement, which today is made popular all over the world by the sitting of The Nervous Diseases Hospital there, derived its name Aro from this great hunter.

        Isheri near Lagos was the next place of call of the mysterious mud plate. When it stopped at Isheri, the people, used to the nomadic nature of the plate adopted a wait and see stance. After counting seventeen days several times without any sign of the plate moving, Olofin ordered his followers to go into action and start erecting permanent structures. The people settled down and engage in several trades. However, at the seventeenth count of seventeen days the plate moved once more. This led to pessimism amongst the followers of Olofin who had been happily settled down for two hundred and eighty-nine days. Some of them were actually looking forward to reaping their crops in no distant future. It was therefore agreed that Olofin and a handful of his followers should continue tracking the plate while the majority of them stayed behind at Isheri.
