The name Kuta according to oral tradition was derived from an incident that happened to Akindele and his wife. It was said before Akindele left Ipole in search of his domain with his wife and all instruments of an Oba, there was a terrible internal war among the people of Ipole during which so many brave Owus lost their lives. It was from this war that Akindele managed to escape alongside his pregnant wife. He thereafter congratulated himself by saying “Iku-Ta-Miti” which means “I escaped death”. This was later abbreviated to “Kuta”.
