  • Like most Ora communities, Sabongida Ora is believed to have been founded by Oba Ewuare Ozolua  a Benin warlord who sought refuge in Uwokha in Ivbiosakon areas in c1473. From Uwokha, Oba Ozolua founded Ora and other villages.

    The original name of the town is said to be Evbiobe. The name Sabongida is an Hausa name given to Ora by Hausa settlers who came to make Evbiobe home.

    The town is a commercial town and it plays host to the popular Holy Trinity Grammar School. The people are mostly Christians with a small percentage of Muslims and traditional religion practitioners
