Do you remember that the former chairman of Ohaaneze Ndigbo Chief Ralph Uwechue(RIP) is from your Anioma tribe?
The character you address is not even Igbo to start with,talkless of being anioma

Can't believe people are still faced with identity crises in 2015!
Well,if you don't want to be under the igbo ethnic group,please drop my ancestors Language,Dialect, Name, Culture and Tradition. Completely get rid of anything that reminds you of Igbo including the term Anioma, maybe the world will then listen to you.

Since this people speaks a dialect of Igbo and also bear Igbo names, then wat makes them non-Igbo?? If we man say rightly dat they are not Igbo, then we can also say dat almost all parts of Ebonyi state are non Igbo. because most part of Ebonyi state speaks a distinct dialect of Igbo such as d Abakaliki side and odas. I'm 4rm Edda in Afikpo south LGA of Ebonyi state but I find it difficult 2 undastnd Ehugbo dialect which is in Afikpo North LGA of d state. Many oda parts of Igboland has distinct dialects of Igbo dat u find it difficult 2 link 2 d general Igbo language but dat doesn't make dem non-Igbo. I tink d main problem is 4rm dis geo-political zone of a tin, cos d Igbos in South-south states are d ones tryin 2 estrange demselves 4rm d Igbo tribe which is mainly in d South-east. I will advise we come 2geda and find a way 4ward b4 our dear Igbo nation will be completely balcanized!!!

Gbam!!! This is just what it is. Had Biafra won the war or if there was no war will all this crap come up ?? How come nobody denied their Igboness pre-Nigeria civil war years ??
Just to avoid marginalization many denied their roots even when their names state boldly who they are. Off course it was a futile exercise.

But the people that caused the war are from delta Igbo ...90% of those bastards are from delta Igbo

Now this is what we mainland Igbo get


Well I know pure Igbo there and the few dinials are those that make noise and they are from agbor and ukwuani


Maybe they should ask why swampy clans of delta reference them as non core deltans

Quest: what is first class stupidity?

Ans: Stupidity of the first class is when a Chukwuemeka from Anioma claims in any form a non-Igbo identity.

the level of stupidity of the so called delta people is alarming! I keep asking them WHY is it that when ever Nigerians regard "Nzogwu" as igbo man,you will not see any of those idiots coming out to tell Nigerians that"Nzogwu" is just delta and not igbo.or is it that Nzogwu is the only igbo person in delta state every other person is not igbo,his parents included? the are all VICTIMS OF YORUBA,AWUSA/FULANI MEDIA PROPAGANDA

igbos kept on falling into the trap of our detractors, that article was solely written by an igbo hater, only for igbos in southsouth and southeast to believe it was written by delta igbo people, Ndigbo must learn how to defend themselves and their people, or ignore such divisive articles, all igbo speaking people know themselves, no igbo speaking people of delta will write such thing. why giving attention to mischief maker.

Personally, what I've realised through interacting with anioma people (the nicest person I know on earth is my aunt from onicha-ugbo) is that Anioma itself is a communion of different tribes of which the major ones are Igbo, Ukwuani, and Ika. The Ukwuanis or Ndokwas, and the Ikas are usually the ones who refute the idea or conception that they are Igbos, and truth be told, bini influence is easily noticeable in their dialect and culture. The seemingly more populous Aniocha, Oshimili people and some others are the ones correctly known as the Igbos/delta Igbos, and from my experiences, well over 70% of them see themselves as full Igbos without any other added nomenclature like Ika or Ukwuani. All these are my opinions based on my interactions with Asaba and Onicha-Ugbo people. Thanks guys....

From my own experience it is more of ika people especially the stupid and wicked people claim beni or yoruba tribe. I lived one year in agbor,attended church service in agbor tongue, though I am from Anambra I understood their tongue by 50%. Their youths are given negative sentimental ideas about the igbos. Their students in college hated us,gossiped us,envy us and blackmailed us. They have low sense and beyond normal IQ. Just a few a sensible. They are wicked and stubborn, arrogant and selfcentered. I love the asabas/okpanams,ogwashiuku, etc closer to us
You do not know what you are talking about. all these things because they don't accept being igbo? I don't understand what you mean by beyond normal but there is no single ethnic group in Nigeria - if you compare with the size, that has up to 50‰ of the human resources that Anioma has. Aniomas are great people and ika as a subgroup of the Anioma is doing wonderfully well.

Wow this is so interesting, good job op. I didn't know this much about the Aniomas, now I understand why my friend from Delta State kicks against my calling him igbo.

My friend bears igbo names but his from Delta State, he told me that the part of Delta he is from originated from bini. Now I know better.

Hmmmmmm...... you call a whole tribe wicked because they don't want to associate or claim to be igbo. You should change your way of reasoning the world has gone past level.

/quote]you can't quote me wrong I know what I am saying. I attended Agbor college, did my ijmb cert there. My interactions with ikas specifically agbor is nothing to write home about. I am not trying to say the igbos are angels,for in any basket of eggs some may not be good. Agbor people have God complexes,selfish and boastful. To me stupidity/foolishness goes with wickedness. In terms of human and material resource plus acheivements dont ever equate ika nation to eastern igbos.

sorry for that. Because I love one ika lady. She is special and unique.
But the truth must be told. Though not referring to anioma but ika people. But sorry there may few exceptional elements among them. They like money but will be the first to say SE igbos love money too much
Re: Anioma/Asaba People Are Not Igbo by Donarozzi: 9:36pm On Jul 11, 2016
The Ikelike people of Ogwashi-Ukwu were the aboriginal Igbo of the land before Odaigbo from Nri came. From all indications, the Ikelike people were Igbo, and they were part of the early Eri subgroup of the Igbo people who occupy the stretch of land from Omambala area in the East to Agbor area in the West. That is to say, the autochthonous people of the Enuani area of Anioma are of the same lineage as the autochthonous people of Anambra area. They all belong to the same Eri subgroup of Igboland. Their dialect and culture, the elaborate tradition of Nze/Ozo titles and Okpala system of leadership, clearly show that these people on both sides of River Niger are of the same stock. River Niger is not a barrier; rather, it is an open access that allowed these people to spread out on both sides.

The Ogwashi-Ukwu kingship (Eze/Obi) is found in one of the villages that trace their origins from Nri, while the actual traditional right of leadership is held by the "Okpala" of Ikelike. The elders of Ikelike, the first inhabitants of the land, said they were practicing the Okpala system of leadership before the Odaigbo group arrived from Nri. This is a clear proof that the Ikelike people were Igbo. Any attempt to falsify the origin of the Ikelike people will be seen as a deliberate attempt to re-write history, and that will not be accepted by the elders and academics of the Igbo world.

As long as it divides Igbo, its interesting to you. You think I don't know you? A sadist who hates anything being positive about Igbo? Enahi, sorry to rain on your parade, anioma is an Igbo subgroup, not you, or disgruntled ika elements, or nairaland can change that.

Too numerous to mention. Anioma is doing wonderfully well. We're representing in all fields of human endeavor. where can I start from? Aniocha Ishimili is doing great so also is Ika. I'm not here to make comparism between Aniocha/Oshimili and Ika because that would make you to achieve the goal of your seed of discord and disunity. Your trying to depict Ika as backward because they say they're not Igbo and Aniocha Oshimili as progressive because they accept being Igbo speaks of your insecurity and low self esteem. But for your information, majority of Aniocha Ishimili don't accept being Igbo. You and your brothers can try to use your population to flood the internet with concocted stories like the one that recently went viral where the (Obi of Ukwani in Anioma local government) asked Okowa to shut up because he is Igbo. I have read many concocted stories from you people but only strangers and foolish people can fall for such propaganda. I've never seen a people that claim to know someone more than himself except the Igbo. they claim to know your history but they don't know their own history. And when they concoct their stories, it's always obvious the writers don't even know what they are writing about because of some strange and non existent names of people and places they mention.

bros I did not ask u to make comparison between the two. Ika is made up of many provinces/towns like umunede,agbor,akumazi etc list their great men. I am not mistaking when I say ikas IQ =10 To 100. Infact you lack the dexterity to argue with me, ie low comprehension.
