Location Information

From Abuja take main road west towards Bida. In the village of Agaie, 2 hours out of Abuja, turn left towards Baro. The first 30 minutes is on poorly maintained tarmac road and care should be taken. At T Junction (end of tarmac) turn left again in the direction of Baro. This road is dirt track and will only be possible in a 4x4 vehicle and not at all in the wet season. The village of Baro will be entered after 1 hour on this track (1.5 hours from Agaie and the main road). In the village of Baro it is necessary to visit the Chief who will arrange for villagers to lead the visitor to the graves.

Visiting Information

NOTE: It is a very steep climb to the graves and in total the trek will take 45 minutes. This trek is not for the faint hearted and not accessible for wheelchair disabled.

Historical Information

There are 2 Commonwealth burials of the 1914-1918 war here.
