Imeko Afon is a Local Government Area (LGA) in Ogun state. It has its Headquarters in the town of Imeko. Imeko-Afon Local Government was carved out of the old Egbado (Yewa) North Local Government in December, 1996, during the military regime of General Sani Abacha. It is bounded in north by Oyo State and in the east by Abeokuta North Local Government. To its south is Yewa North Local Government, while its shares a common international border with Republic of Benin in the west. The land is rolling, with small hills rising between 15 and 70 metres above sea level. The Yewa River runs through the area from North to South, with its tributaries, the rivers Oyan and Oha.
The inhabitants of this LGA engage in farming. The vegetation is a mixture of Savannah belt and sparse forest suitable for cattle raising, with the advantage of being free of Tse-tse flies. The climate is tropical, with a rainy season commencing around March and ending in November. The soil is fertile, and Cassava and Tomatoes are grown in large quantities. Cotton grown in the LGA supplies the Yaru, tread and textile industries in Benin Republic. Other crops are pepper, maize, groundnuts, yams, vegetables, cocoa, cashew and teak. The indigenes of Imeko/ Afon Local Government are predominantly Yoruba of Ketu origin, with a sizable number of Ohori and Egun- speaking people.
