Igbobi College


IGBOBI COLLEGE YABA, LAGOS was established in 1932 “to give a well balanced secondary education to boys in an environment adequate for the purpose”.

The objective of the CMS and Methodist planners was to show that improved education could best be established under ecumenical Christian influence provided “an environment adequate for the purpose” could be located. This meant emphasizing residence for pupils and teachers, and land spacious enough to cater for this, as well as providing fields for sport, craft, farm, etc.

A 32 acre plot, part of the kola plantations of the family of Madam Tinubu met these requirements, hence the name, “Igbobi” College.

ICOBA UK is the UK Old Boys Association.
