    The Frontier States of Western Yorubaland: The Yorùbá are one of the peoples of West Africa affected by the demarcation of territories by European powers at the close of the nineteenth century. Although the bulk of the people are now found in South-western Nigeria, impressive indigenous Yorùbá communities are in the neighbouring Republics of Benin and Togo. The pre-colonial African kingdom of Buganda was situated on the northern shore of Lake Victoria. Reid argues that the political history of the state needs to be read in new light given his examination of social, economic, and military developments as the material basis for political power.   Institutions were often established to check the powers of the Oba and his council.8 By the end of the 16th century the political organizations of most of the Yoruba kingdoms were probably complete and broadly similar. Each kingdoms consisted of a capital town, a number of subordinate towns, villages, markets, and farmlands.
