Ikere Ekiti or simply Ikere is an ancient Yoruba town in the present day Ekiti State, Southwest Nigeria. The town has a boundary in the north with Ado Ekiti, in the South with Akure [Ondo State]having Iju/Ita Ogbolu as the closest towns in the south. Ikere has a boundary with Ise Ekiti in her eastern flank while Igbaro Odo/Ilawe are the next neighbors to her west. Thus Ikere can be said to be the gateway to Ekiti State from the south.
