This was mostly because Inisa was located too far south to be effectively controlled by the emirate at Ilorin, a powerful Fulani-controlled Yoruba city to the north. Subsequently, outposts were set up by the Yoruba of Inisa to curtail the power of the Fulani at Ilorin. Population (1995) 116,800. Its population as of 2007 was 180,553.

The people of Inisa, with support from Ibadan warriors effectively defeated The Ilorin Army during the famous Jalumi war of the 19th century and thus liberated its adjoinning towns and villages already counquered by Ilorin in its southward incursion to the heart of yorubaland.Inisa people are predominantly muslims, with sizeable Christian and animist populations.The people embraced western and islamic education comparatively earlier than its neighbours.A monument was erected at the bank of River Otin to commemorate the defeat of Ilorin during the Jalumi war.
