Notes on the Geography of Nigeria: Oshogbo: Photo 9
By 1905 Oshogbo had 60,000 people and, along with the railroad, its first European school, All Saints. The British Cotton Growing Association opened a gin two years later. The Bank of British West Africa finally opened a branch in 1924, and by 1955 Oshogbo had electricity, a radio station, and 150,000 residents.
Three years later, Suzanne Wenger arrived with her husband, Ulli Beier. They had come to Nigeria five years earlier so that he could take up an appointment at the University of Ibadan. Neither of them liked the school's Eurocentric curriculum or its racial separation, and in 1958 they moved to Oshogbo.
