Adubi War

The Adubi War, known locally as Ogun Adubi, or Egba Uprising was a conflict that occurred in June-August 1918 in Colonial Nigeria as a result of taxation introduced by the colonial government. The war consisted of thirty thousand Egba fighters destroying much of the railway and telegraphs lines south of Abeokuta along with the killing of a European trading agent and a high-ranking Egba chief. The incident was the culmination of the abrogation of Abeokuta's independence in 1918, and the introduction of direct taxation and forced labor in the region.[1][2][3] British soldiers who fought in the war received the Africa General Service Medal.
