I never specified that OKORO is a SE name or made any attempt to identity the ethnicity , all I did was exempt that possibility from being SW. comprehension is a vital skill, if you are lacking in this please make improvements

Thanks for the update , now I know one Urhobo name

What "improvements" do you suggest that I make?
The ability to assimilate, which I do not lack, is indeed essential smiley
My comment was not unrelated to your reference to the possibility of unmentioned names being from the SE.
Sometimes things don't need to be spelled out. One should be able to put two and two together... use their brain, basically.
Glad to have taught you something. You're very welcome smiley

Religion / Re: 10 Women A Christian Man Should Avoid When Considering Marriage by somegirl1: 10:51am On May 31
2 and 3 are potentially conflicting points. If a woman shouldn't marry a younger man, at a certain age when most men older than her are married, she'd have to set her hope on the widower or the divorcee.

Now the divorcee's ex-wife, who through no fault of her own became the divorced woman, does not deserve to find love?

who can be compared to a mother?



Father that can abandon you at anytime, marry a new wife n have hundreds of you?

My mother first, my mother middle, my mother last


Father is just to provide money.. and once the child is able to fend for his/herself financially


Father is not of any use!



Not all women make great mothers.
And some men make awesome dads.

I know a man who absolutely adores his dad and can hardly stand being around his mum for long. The reverse is the case with his older brother, his mother is his world.
They just have very different opinions of what makes a great parent.

Ha!

No, Ibos were the only nak3d ones. Others have been wearing clothes since time immemorial. And this thread also proves that. Or do you want me to post the pictures of other tribes in Nigeria, in 1870, and compare them to this one and other pictures of Ibos?

Opobo is Igbo land now because it suits your agenda and would revert to being Rivers Ijaw in a political thread. Funny.

I think you are a drug dealer or associated with drugs dealers and you are trying to find information and intelligence on how IGBO drug dealers are separated from other Nigerians!

It is ignorance like yours that is making IGBO people get caught easily these days...Your brain fails to assimilate the points I am making, points that happen to come from the NDLEA and many agencies catching IGBO people like flies these days!

Thai Officer Calls Nigerians, Igbos Curse Of Africa: An interrogating Thai officer made some disparaging remarks about Nigerians and Igbos in this drug-related interview: http://newsrescue.com/in-shocking-xenophobia-video-thai-officer-calls-nigerians-igbos-curse-of-africa/#axzz3ab3axGQL

If you think only that Thai police officer in all of the Thai and Asian police forces you are sadly mistaken. Many Ambassadors who served in Asia, foreign affairs staff, Nigerian citizens living there and other Nigerian Government agenceis made sure of that.

NDLEA is working with many international police forces on information sharing to stop drug traficking, NDLEA boss said majority of Drug trafickers are IGBO and the agency constantly supplies that information to foreign police forces.


Lol
Stop getting yourself worked up unnecessarily.
They probably refer to Nigerians as Igbo as a large percentage of Nigerians in Thailand are Igbo. Not because Igbos have specifically been identified as drug dealers.
I can see how desperate you are for this to be true.
Are you saying that a non-Igbo is more likely to get away with drug smuggling than an Igbo person?
If that were the case, I don't see why any potential drug smuggler wouldn't just get a passport with a non-Igbo name. Very easy to do. How then would they be identified?'

Do you know why Thai embassy requires Clearance Certificate issued by N.D.L.E.A?
Because NDLEA flags IGBO passengers to the Thai even if a VISA is issued that IGBO person is marked.

NDLEA have and will always tell you that 99% of DRUG dealers are IGBO

NDLEA made interpol, ASIA, Middle East countries, South American coountries aware of the ethnic group involved in this crime.

Since then the detection rate and arrest of IGBO drug dealers have gone up!

That policy started in the period of General Musa Bamaiyi, I know that because the mallam made it his tenure policy to finger IGBO drug dealers.

So for your info, if you know any IGBO drug dealers tell them they will be checked specially even if the customs people at the other end just says "Nigerian".


Wouldn't they first have to be able to identify Igbo names? That's the tricky bit.
I'm guessing you know all Igbo names and Igbo name formats. Did you not just incorrectly guess that the subject of this post is Igbo when in fact Unazi is a Benue name. Can you tell whether someone with the surname Osa is Igbo or Bini, Olumba igbo or Cross River, Okoro Igbo or Urhobo, if their first names are English? I'm sure you would think Ochigbo is an Igbo name or Ola is definitely not Igbo . If you don't know, how can you educate others? That's assuming that these people actually care to differentiate among Africans, not to speak of Nigerians.
I doubt they'd subject non-Igbos to less checks than they would Igbos.
I haven't been given special attention on any of my asian trips because I'm Igbo. Perhaps it only happens in your neighbourhood.
If you truly want to mend your image abroad, join the movement for peaceful secession. As long as we hold the same passport, we are in the same boat.

Well you are an ignorant person!

You are either an IGBO or behave like one. I know over a dozen people who were asked that question and I know that on the streets of Thailand the same question is asked, it was asked in Vietnam, Indonesia and Malaysia.

I am one of the people who brought awareness to local police, people, immigration and customs in Asia about it and I know it is effective. If there are a few airport officials who are still not aware or want to stigmatize Nigerians then perhaps... but by and large it is starting to take root in Asia that the ethnic group from Nigeria dealing drugs are IGBOs.

NDLEA, Nigerian Ambassadors in those countries, diplomats, and many law abiding students and businessmen made sure of that.

I don't care what you think, IGBO people are not going to use drugs to destroy Nigerian passport for law abiding Nigerians and make their lives miserable without some of them doing something about it.

any IGBO person I see at the airport or on the streets of Asia doing drugs will be reported and made to face the firing squad and it will be reported as an IGBO statistic!

give your self a round of applause. I hope you at least get paid for your efforts.
I see Igbos being very terrified of you.
Until the passport is changed. We are all seen as the same.
Continue in your delusion. I shall be travelling to Asia again late this year or early next year. I'll ask the immigration officials whether they aren't forgetting to inquire about my ethnic group.

...and I say does my name look like IGBO and they look at themselves and say ok different!
That has been my experience in Malaysia, Indoneseia, Vietnam, Thailand.

I was told that mallams working in NDLEA have educated interpol and many drugs destination countries about IGBO nijja passport holders!

On the Streets on these Asian countries, the police and local people know IGBO.

I think you should shut your mouth if you don't know what you are talking about!

I've holidayed in Asia more than once. I've never been asked what part of Nigeria I'm from.
