How does IPOB factor into the current discussion? Hatred for Igbos will kill you.

So how come 80% of the comments made on Vanguard facebook page concerning this topic were made Ipod youths?
even though it's nothing about them

I've never seen Igbos show that level of support for any Nigerian tribe

So it should be like this "The Hatred Igbos Have for Yorubas will kill them"

My first question on looking at this picture is 'who is at the centre'.
Anyone who sits at the centre beside the man in suit is the archetypal oba, the first among others. Someone said it's the ooni, maybe he is the first after all.
What's Oba of Benin doing there? Thought someone said he is in the class of Obi and Eze and not an Oba
That is your opinion which you are well entitled to no doubt but the picture tells little.There is no such thing as Seniority because they were different Kingdoms.Some may have been historically more powerful but they were separate and distinct kingdoms. Just like Nigeria and Niger and Cameroon

Those Benin indigenes that have been fed with fake history by their parents and those useless IPOB Biafra youth who always think the Yoruba nation is in rivalry of prominence with their tribe and would therefore support anything that is against Yoruba should come and learn from this historic picture and stop arguements.

Foul, crude, raw, gutter and uncouth language of the sort deployed by you here only serves to cast aspersion on your person. Do please endeavour to represent your position in a decent manner.

I don't even understand why on earth the yorubas are wanting to attach themselves by force to the bini as well as wrongfully claim a throne that doesn't belong to them. This is stupidity at its highest... Who would want to have anything to do with the dirty fellows that call themselves yoruba leaving in Southwest.....

We Yorubas would not force Bini people. We are not ibos who beg people to accept them. Even the Binis themselves know the truth but they don't wanna accept it.


But blood is THICKER THAN WATER. A word is enough for the wise. Only an omo-ale will point to his father's house with his left hand.

Yorubas are the most low self esteemed people in the world. I'm not surprised at their recent claims of bini being part of yoruba. I want to ask this question. How is it possible for a tribe that happened to have present day Southern Nigeria under their empire become part of them? The Bini empire is amongst the 5 greatest African empire of medieval time. The Benin dynasty is the second most respected dynasty in the world. Even the Queen of England acknowledges that fact. So how is it possible for binis to have come from one of the most backward and fetish tribes in Africa such as yoruba?

Yorubas are conquered by Oba of Bini son Oduduwa, The Binin prince Oduduwa which is the son of Oba of Benin conquered yourubas and yourubas refer to him as god which fall down from haven with rooster and palm fruits. Yorubas are slaves to Binin kingdom, the name Oba is a Bini name and word and Eko is a Bini word, The Binis also conquered Aworis and Eguns in Lagos and gave it the name Eko before yorubas started migrating to Lagos. Prince Eze Chima of Onitcha kingdom is one of the biggest allies of Binin Kingdom,he help Binis in their conquest.

I dnt c how a picture dated 1937 can b evidence of royalty dt pre-dates d coming of d English 2our shores. I believe d entity Nigeria was amalgamated in 1914, n d influence of d Oba of Benin n d Benin "empire" not "kindom" had already been reduced badly by d superior fire power of d invading foreigners. Just saying... undecided. But how does any of these improve our per-capital income?

this is what i posted, did i say that Igbos are in lagos before yorubas, read your history book about Binin kingdom,Prince Eze Chima, the capturing of lagos by Bini empire before they handed Eko to British.
