Where, and what was, the settlement of Eredo?

Answer: A city state in southwest Nigeria, believed to have held prominence in the ninth century. Only recently publicised, it was surrounded by a wall that was 100 miles long and up to seventy feet high. The internal area was an incredible 400 square miles. Much of the wall still surrounds the modern day town of Ijebu Ode.
