What this Nigeria propaganda country are trying to do ever since is to divide try great Benin race.

They are trying to group in Edo people that are nearer to them into their own ethnic group. E.g

Edo groups in ondo, ekiti, Lagos have been brainwashed believing they are Yorubas

Edo groups nearer to East like anioma has been brainwashed into believing they are Igbo

Edo group in kogi has been brainwashed into believing they are igala

Edo groups in ijawoid community has been brainwashed into believing they are ijaw.


Oga ade, know your fact right. No edo group in lagos, ogun, ondo or ekiti. Stop claiming relationship, we do not bear same name, culture are differ, we do not eat same food. Stop giving yourself relevance. We are yorubas.

The same Edo that detests all those peoples that you claim migrated out of Bini kingdom.
Ok.....continue grin

There is a misconception. The story of Edo is separate from the story of Benin.

I was on a 3month ban some months back. When i get back i saw notice to show up on a thread in culture...something to do with Oba of Benin visiting Ife. When i saw what was going i refused to join. Yorubas were flogging Edos in there.

If i can find it I will link here.

Benin is the elite ruler, the owner of the kingdom and the monarchy. Edo does not own a monarchy. Those who dont know their own history will say their kings was an Edo before they migrated to so and so place.

Have you ever heard Lagos royal claim to be Edo? Never. Because they know. They are descendants of Benin.

Edo is a scammer.

True, Edo owns the land....but they have never in their history established a selfruled monarchy.

The Benin does not own the land, they are foreigners on Edoland.

what can a Yoruba man do?

According to babaginda

"If I hear a Yoruba man coming to my house to fight war with me, I'll go back to sleep because all he can do is talk"
You can try yorubas na. Since you want to know what they can do. Be decieving yourself witb babangida that could not even try yorubas.

Just re-examine your logic before you continue.
If you claim that all those Igbo speaking peoples migrated out of Edo, then you must be ready to accept that ancient Edo kingdom had Igbo roots grin

I have never denied our link with Bini, but not matter how connected we are, the Urhobos remain a unique ethnic group and it's unfair to lump them as "Edo people".

You have all the right to protect your Edo heritage, same as me, you just need to face reality, for the fact that a group of people migrated from your land doesn't make them part of your ethnic group, we all migrated from somewhere.

Happy new year BOSS.
you don't understand, Edo is just one part of a bigger family, urhobo is an ethnic group of itself just like Bini, isan, isoko, etc.

What we are trying to do is try to promote more unity between us because of our ancestry, if we don't that means we are lost.

Don't you see igbos trying to claim delta even their nnadi kanu included it in their Biafra map because he saw they aren't united.

They just have little igbo history in them but is not obvious so that's why Anioma is totally edo.

That's has been agreed...
Re: Great Benin descendants thread by Excaperx: 9:46am On Jan 01
God to know people are now embracing their ancestry, what the benins need to do is to create an umbrella for different ethnic group of Benin ancestry to let their voice be heard.
