Are Urhobos And Isoko And Ika Also Edo?


The Language, Culture and Traditions Are so similar to Edo infact Urhobos and isoko see themselves as one with Edo and Acknoledge Benin as thier source.... Just like all yorubas pay homage to my hometown ile ife cool.

And Another thing that baffles me is the Nnamdi Azikiwe in 1963 said Igbos are from Edo and i have noticed Edo Culture on my numerous trips to Onitsha back in the days!!

As far as we know igbos have no history of Kingdoms or Kingship

Please, there is nothing like Obi of Anioma. That young man there is the Obi of Issele-Uku.

There is nothing like Obi of Igbo. That gentleman there is the Obi of Onitsha.

Nnamdi Azikiwe did not ever say Igbo people came from Edo. He was writing specifically about his hometown Onitsha, not about all Igbos.

Smh. Delusion of grandeur. These Bini people and their over-bloated estimation of themselves and penchant to masturbate over irrelevant stuff sef. Up till today, their only 'achievement', contribution, and bragging right in life is in an overrated and useless monarchy. While other ethnicities are making a name for themselves in different spheres of endeavors, na their useless Oba dem dey carry for head. Oba wey in the real sense be ordinary figurehead without any real powers. Mschew!

Yinmu. You can only fooll your fellow Bini e-rats, not Yorubas. Real Yorubas don't form attache or carry Oba of Benin matter on their heads. Wetin consign Yoruba with Bini? You should be proud of your Bini roots and quit acting a fooll boy, coz you sure ain't fooling no one but yourself. Be proud of your Bini roots.

Ode Oshi. Look here Bini boy, I have no problem with you worshipping your useless oba of bini or whatever, but you DON'T have to PRETEND to be Yoruba to do that. There are enough of your fellows on here already doing same so you don't need a misleading moniker to get attention. REAL Yorubas are too proud to be promoting foreign kings like that useless oba of bini. The Ooni, Alaafin, Awujale, Owa Obokun, e.t.c are far greater than that useless bini king. Don't be ashamed to use an edo or bini moniker to promote your king. It's o.k, really. undecided

Da pada. Back to sender! You've given yourself away with your 'Ori pelebe' (you made that blunder twice). A true Yoruba son wouldn't express 'flat head' in that manner. Look, quit this your foolishness coz you don't need it. I know your plan is to actually use your moniker to stir controversy by making stvpid statements that would make non-Yorubas think you're Yoruba and start taking shots at us, but your kind plenty on this board and your antics aren't new. Like I already advised, be proud of your edo/bini roots, you don't need this at all.

Eze Nri of Agukwu, Eze Nri of Oraeri, Ezeigwe (Obi) of Oguta, Attamaya of Ossomala, Igwe of Atani, Igwe of Nnewi, etc.

All these kingship systems existed in the southeast from precolonial days. They are not 'political appointments/favours'.
