1930's really?

What proof that these she-men are Igbos or that this is the 1930s with such primitive unclothedness of the 11th century?

Which Igbo town is oyo more advanced than. Sometimes coming online to display gross ignorance can end up backfiring, is it not the same oyo that is filled with dead brown roof buildings and ritual forests whose airport is nothing but a big residence of birds and rodents.
