The Dein gave the admonition at his palace recently while giving his royal blessings to the new Iregwa of Ogbemudien Community, Pa. Bogi Abagi. He called on the good people of Agbor Kingdom to join hands with him to effect the changes he desires to be in place. According to him, “I am back and happy to be in the midst of my subjects. This kind of gathering gives me joy because it is an opportunity for me to learn more from my people. There is room for change, therefore my wish and desire for my subjects is that they adopt and respect every change that is being made. Going through the history of Agbor Kingdom, one will thank the gods for wisdom. Thus, everyone will join hands with me to reposition things the way they ought to be in order to restore our lost glory”.



He called on all Agbor indigenes to preserve Agbor culture and stop promoting Igbo culture. His words, “stop giving our children Igbo names. The native names given to our children should be pronounced and written in Agbor language and not in Igbo or Ika language as Agbor has its own unique language. The Igbo red cap should also be dropped as it is not a native cap for Agbor Kingdom. Soon, I will start driving away my palace chiefs who are fond of coming to the palace, wearing in red caps. Agbor traditions should be respected and preserved for future generations. Parents and the elderly should teach our children and the youths the culture of Agbor”.

The Odion of Agbor Kingdom, Chief Julius Ochei who led the new Iregwa and the people of Ogbemudien to the Dein’s Palace for blessing, said the Iregwa title goes to the oldest man in Ogbemudien Community, stating that it is the turn of Pa. John Bogi Abagi who is 89 years and the oldest man. The Iregwa, according to Chief Ochie is the traditional head of Ogbemudein Community in Agbor Kingdom.

In a chat with Ika Weekly Newspaper Reporter, the Chairman of Ogbemudien Community, Hon. Simon Okpali lauded the Dein for his wealth of knowledge and prayed the good Lord to empower him. He expressed his confidence in the new Iregwa of Ogbemudien to lead well and thanked the Dein for his blessings.

Julius Ehiabor, the Onu-otu of Ogbemudein Community, on his part, said Pa. Abagi leadership is good and that the good people of Ogbemudien Community are happy. He prayed God to give the new Iregwa good health and long life.

Mr. Johnbull Okwuogori Aghaulor felicitating with the Iregwa, appealed to him to continue to lead them in truth. He prayed God to bless the Dein of Agbor, the Iregwa, Ogbemudein Community and Agbor Kingdom.

Responding, Pa. Abagi thanked the Dein, saying that his joy knows no bounds, while soliciting for the cooperation of every son and daughter of Ogbemudein Community to enable him give the Dein the needed support to move Agbor Kingdom forward.

Very interesting! grin

I have friends from Agbor who identify as Ika with
Edo surnames but with an Iboid subculture due
to interactions with nearby Anioma communities.

Obaigbena, Irabor, Ovia are some popular
surnames from Agbor in Delta State.


As for the red cap it is originally of Igala origin
and was introduced into the Nsukka area by Igala
people. Yorubas of Kogi and Kwara also wear red
chieftaincy caps. It is not strictly an Ibo creation!

But why grin grin grin

I make these comments with due respect to the elders of Agbor and the entire Igbo institutions in Agbor. I am of the impression that the elders of Agbor who are the custodians of the Igbo traditions of Agbor are feeling uncomfortable with the way the current Dei of Agbor, Benjamin Ikechukwu, is piloting the affairs of their community. Benjamin Ikechukwu was not brought up in Igboland, does not speak Igbo, and as such does not really understand the intricacies of Igbo culture and traditions. That the kingship institution of Agbor is hereditary does not mean that the king has the right to burst in and ignorantly supplant the real traditions of his people with alien traditions. Let the elders of Agbor stand up and call Benjamin Ikechukwu to order. I don't know if Benjamin Ikechukwu really told his people to stop practising Igbo culture. But if the young king actually said so, the elders of Agbor must rise up immediately and educate him so that he could learn that Agbor is fundamentally Igbo.

Samuk, I know this is an old post.

You see, the British were so avowed to cut down the influence of Benin since the 1840s in Lagos that they didn't rest until 1960. From West to East.

While Benin didn't have large populations in its territories, their monarchs and nobility were pure Benin princes and nobility. From Eleko, Eletu Odibo and Obanikoro in Lagos to Ogiamie/Olu and his original chiefs in Warri.

Over 120 years was more than enough to suppress Benin history, while helping other previously tribal groups unite into large ethnic nationalities. The newly emerged larger tribes now took over the suppression crusade from colonial masters.

But in that time, when succession fight occurred in several of those former Benin territories, the matter would be settled in Benin palace. Because those monarchs previously got their approval from Oba of Benin and the history is well known in Benin.

Clearly, Dr Zik who was born in 1904 probably grew up to meet relatives born around 1830s to 1840s. The reign of Oba Osemwende. So he got the authentic history of Onitsha from those old relatives. Even a young man like me met elderly relatives well over 90 years old over 30 years ago. People born around 1880s to 1890s.

Their story of Lagos, Onitsha, much of Anioma, Itsekhiri and Edoid people were remarkably consistent. Even echoed what Zik wrote about Onitsha.

As for Agbor, they are a unique Igboid people but infused with much Benin royal and aristocratic traditions.

I think what many Igbo have refused to accept is that people cannot be forced to identify with you. Cultures evolve over time. The English, Dutch, Swedes, Danes. Flemish, Norwegians and others are Germanic people BUT THEY ARE NOT Germans. Urhobo/Okpe, Isoko, Degema and others are of Greater Benin/Edoid origin but they are not called Benin people of today.

So we cannot start throwing insult at people for carving out a unique identity for themselves. Otherwise the suspicion that it's all about domination of others becomes very potent.

With the way the Igbos are going on with their Nri project, Biafra will unlikely extend more than the current 5 states that make up south east. Someone already told us in a different thread that the Obi of Onitsha will not break the cola is the presence of some Nri Ezes.

Imagine the Obi of Agbor with history spanning hundreds of years, probably more authentic and prestigious than any Nri Eze being made to become second class monarch to these Nri Ezes in a new Biafra.

Recently some of these monarchs and people in the south south are beginning to reaffirmed their traditional links with Benin because the dangers of their thrones and culture going extinct is very real should Nigeria breaks up and they are absorbed by these later days big tribes.

Under Benin empire, these various tribes were allowed their autonomy, something, they will likely lose under the so called big tribes.

After all these ranting, one thing is very clear, Obi of Agbor is far more senior to any Eze in Igbo land because the popular saying in Igbo is "Igbo enwe eze", which translates to "the Igbo have no King".
