Anyone who is familiar with the sociocultural history of Auchi in the twentieth century must be aware of the dominant influence of Islam in the area. Indeed, Auchi has been one of the most Islamised communities in the Afenmai area of present-day northern Edo State. In fact, so overwhelming has been the influence of Islam in the area that it reflects on virtually all facets of the sociocultural lives and institutions of the people.
