i for once dont do this tribal shit,except folks from the other side decides to go naughty,then i play the myths buster. i cant underate akwa ibomites who happens to be our good friends but your unguarded utterances and sense of self importance amazes me,however i can assure you that i doubt if any igbo man thinks himself as akwa ibomite.
If only the so called nairaland akwa ibomites can devote this level of energy in there struggle for economic and social emanicipation from the shackles of hausa fulani hegemony or from the corrupt tendecies of their supposed state governments who recieve allocations higher than some five states put together and nothing to show for it!...then going forward things may be better.

Since you have been fighting the Hausa/Fulani hegemony what success have you achieve?

Another gutter thread brought up to confuse unsuspecting Igbos. Igbos have no problem with Akwa Ibom ethnic because we've lived long enough to know ourselves better than all the quarrel stoking impostors on Nairaland have. Notice to all Igbos: a thread with Cletus77, Melee Zenawi, LegendHero and NtoAkwaIbom is one with a powerful combination of characters to cause disaffection among Biafrans so as to pave way for the fulani penetration of our lands. Just go through their posts and see them for who they truly are. I just did that an Cletus77 was revealed to me. Same as NtoAkwaIbom. Disregard the thread. Don't let them push you to insult our Ibibio or Annang brothers.

Lol so you’re saying the other guys are Yorubas masking as Akwa-Ibomites? Even after how they spoke their language fluently and with the convincing point they made about their tribe and land space you still brought your ignorance on this thread to label them Yorubas.

I am a Yoruba and I’ve always maintained my identity, it’s just rubbish to try to label the OP and those you quoted up there as a different tribes coz you do not expect Akwa-Ibom to lay claim to their lands?

Are they a conquered tribe that dare not take hold of their land or who dare not tell the Igbos to know where they belong? Even if you are brothers like you claimed, what kind of brother steal other siblings inheritance and still ask them not to complain?

Its not your fault, it’s the SS’ners fault for remaining silent for too long while you guys define their identity for them. I’m not tryna create any animosity among you coz I know you guys are like brothers, but they’ve been quiet on here for too long and if they remain like this, the Igbos will try all they can to redefine the SS’ners identity.

You're still typing rubbish. Igbos never claimed Akwa Ibom as an Igbo state, we rather said that some indigenuos Igbo communities can be found in the state which is not arguable because it is what it is. It's impostors like you that come out from nowhere to accuse us of stealing and start stoking division in our ranks. The Ogu(Egun) people don't own Ogun state but they have indigenous communities in the state. Is it not so? You guys must shut up and focus on what you know. Isn't this how some of you were busy saying there are no indigenous Igbos in Delta and Rivers even when our population there is in millions. Stick to what you know.

Why drag the Yoruba into this when it’s all an issue of discourse between the Akwa Ibom indigents on this thread and the earlier Igbo guys that claimed part of majority Igbo-AkwaIbimites.

You sound like a sane person which explains why I had to reply to you in a civil way, but if you keep maintain some traits of your fellow Igbos on the earlier thread I won’t have a choice than to be confrontational also.

Your lies gradually diminish your worth. Why did you accuse Igbos of stealing from their brothers and stoking hatred between the two people? Or would you deny this too? Your intents are very clear and they have failed. Akwa Ibomites are smart people; I schooled with lots of them and I know they aren't gullible like some other tribes that fall easily to your divisive antics.

Losing a war against a combined force is not shameful. We didn't fight fulani alone so we still hold our heads high. I tell you the truth; Igbos prevented the original plans of the fulanis although at a costly price. The day other ethnic groups will figure this out, you all will on your way to Futa djallon and Futa toro.

Their original plan being genocide or what? You never denied the biafran forces couldn't stop blockade. If they never joined up they'd be like other parts of nation sided with Nigeria most likely.

I don't need to tell you their original plan. Everyone will realise it when it's almost late. Stopping a blockade beyond what Biafra could do then because she wasn't prepared for a war. Aren't you ashamed that despite two first world countries incessantly supplying you heavy weapons, you still had to depend on starvation to win an I'll prepared people.

You only give long and vague answers to direct questions. I'll just assume its because the so called accomplishments are fictitious. Why would I be ashamed of anything I didn't personally do. Are you ashamed the biafrans ran into a war they weren't prepared for losing 2 million lives instead of surrendering earlier into blockade.

Are you okay at all? Am I the one that started this? What do you mean by the statement that I’m stoking hatred between two people? Have you gone through the former thread that gave birth to this thread to see how your fellow Igbos are speaking without considering the emotion/reactions of the Akwa-Ibomites?

Do you think it’s easy to divide people that are not wary of eachother to some extent ? They’ve also been alive to your actions and they are just silent because of the chain of brotherhood. You keep claiming their heritage and you think they ought to remain silent?

Sorry oooo

Am a potential Ipob . I don't support biafra with any minority tribe. It will be like creating another Nigeria full of stagnation, ethnic sentiments and lack of development.

Biafra of today should be an all Igbo homogeneous country. SS minorities in all honesty are better off in Nigeria while Igbos are better off in Biafra.


Kanu and IPOB must make the struggle an Igbo affair, such country can work and there will be understanding and development.
Re: BORDER POLITICS: An End To The Igbo And Ibibio E-war by Konquest: 1:01pm On Dec 16, 2019
NtoAkwaIbom:
We all remember the bakasi peninsula issue, the people indigenous yo that area where Nigerians mostly Akwa/cross people, but then instead of relying on their occupation and control of the Peninsula as evident by the existence of a functioning government which regulated the area...(this in international law is sufficient means of prove of sovereignty over a territory ) but instead of that, Nigeria was relying on maps and data that were rigged to favor the drawing party, hence, we lost a very rich Peninsula to the cameroons. That my brothers and sister is the risk we face, if we keep quiet when we are supposed to speak up and be heard.

Ordinarily, Akwa ibom state shares borders with Rivers, Cross River, and Abia..
In these areas because of trade, the border communities are always fluent in the language of both areas.. The language of oron is oron, but close to the river border with calaba, on village there gets to be fleuent in Oron and efik... That does not make efik an indigenous community in Oron, the efik people will not claim them to be indegenous... But if oron is gazeted it will be stated that the people atthe fringes speak oron as their main language, but are also fluent in efik which aids them in commerce.

Its the same thing with the areas bordering Abia..
Ika for one has its language, which is named 'Ika" its their main and official language... But because of their proximity to abia state, the people learnt overtime to speak and understand igbo, so as to aid in their businesses and commerce..
But then the people there are indegenous annang people and Igbo is jus a second language they use for commerce with the igbo... But you wont go to the paramout rullers house and speak igbo, it will be an afront... You go there and you speak Ika... You wont see anigbo man being made the village head there, but you will see a sizable number of igbo people there doing businesses..

So you see...
When one now comes, and says, that because igbo is spoken there as a second language, that that automatically makes the area to be an indigenous igbo community, you can imagine the affront that the people will feel.they will feel threatened and they will be very weary of the igbos in their midst, as they will feel that the next thing will be for the igbos to usurp their powers.

So the arguments that have been on, is not in anyway a form of hate towards the igbos, but a fight for survival and Identity by the owners of these communities.
If there are so many people that are so ignorantly claiming the area to be an Igbo area, what do you think will hapen to the "IKA" people ? They will fade out, and the same way most midle belt cultures faded to become Hausas, the subset will now be overun by the main set the igbo, and before you know, one community after another, and next thing you know will be of the Lost annang tribes.

So fellow Nigerians far and wide, this is not a means of calling for E-wars, but a means of preserving the Identity of a people that may be phased out.. If the ignorant and misinformation that is going on and about should go on.

Akwa Ibom and the Igbo community are good neigbors.. As good neighbors we need to respect each other boundaries for peace to reign..

@NtoAkwaIbom
This is a good writeup.


Can you tell me what is the status of Arochukwu
in the history of the Ibibio people. I am aware
that that place or land originally belongs
to the Ibibio people and is part of Ibibio land.
Is it jointly owned by Ibibio/Ibo or what?
I read this several years back online.


I have also read about the presence of Ibibio
bloodlines in those areas of Abia such as
Arochukwu axis with some bearing Ibibio names.
Would you still call those people Ibibio
or Ibo?

I am aware that the Ekpe society which some Abia Ibos
practice is of Ibibio/Ejegbam/Efik origins and it has even
spread to Cuba where it is known as the Cuban Abacua in
the Matanzas province just like you have a strong presence
of Yoruba culture and religion in old Havana and
Matanzas, Cuba as well.


All the best!
