Oblo is a poorly attested, unclassified, and possibly extinct language of northern Cameroon. It is, or was, spoken in a tiny area including Gobtikéré, Ouro Bé, and Ouro Badjouma, in Pitoa, Bénoué Department. (Note: the map in Ethnologue shows it in Mayo-Rey Department, possibly an error.[citation needed])

Oblo has been classified as one of the Adamawa languages, but it has not been included in recent classifications. It might be best left unclassified altogether.[2]
