Idumota in Lagos Island, Nigeria.

Idumota

Olofin and his followers left the palace of King Oduduwa in Ile-Ife and migrated southward along a river. Oduduwa had given Olofin a mud plate with instructions to place it on the water and follow it until it sank into the river. They were to settle wherever it sank

The plate is said to have stopped at various locations and finally sank at Idumota in the present day Lagos State Nigeria. The name Awori, translation "The plate sank", became the name by which the clan is known.
