Igbo is a NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO grin grin grin

I'm told they eat people which I later confirmed when I dated an Igbo lady for like 2yrs. I won't have if we're both in 9ja. She told me she can't also marry an Igbo man cuz they act too primitive. grin
It is just her personal opinion. Moreover it might be that an igbo man has broken her heart that is why she reacts that way. Reminiscing my service year , I was involved with an ijebu girl from Ogun state . She likes me so much that she was begging me to come pay her bride prize that it's cheap and affordable. She will always reiterate the fact that she can't marry a Yoruba man . Her reason was that, they are too polygamous . Her father too married three wives. I left her because of her fetish nature .

Yorubas also hate each other when it comes to marriage. I am a Yoruba from osun but live in Lagos, ilaje area in ajegunle to be precise,ilaje hates other Yorubas. They hardly see themselves as Yoruba. And other Yorubas hate them too. You hear an average ilaje man or woman saying Those Yoruba too like fight ..are they not Yorubas? They bear Yoruba names,wear Yoruba dress in fact they are Yoruba. But illiterate among them is annoying and wicked. My mum said she will disown me if I ever say I want to marry from ilaje,but I am in love with one already and I love her die. She even survived sniper taken when her mum tries separating us. God saved me she didn't die if not I for dey prison. Tribalism is high among Yorubas but they don't show it

Yes. She actually told me of a story. She was on her way back home from the U.S and the bus she boarded from Lagos back to her final destination in the SE region stopped at a junction for passengers to relax and refresh. She's actually based in Benin but, decided to stay with her aunt in one of the SE states. She said what she saw sent shock waves over her sexy body grin. In one of the restaurants, she saw people comfortably eating human body parts. angry She thought she was dreaming until she actually heard people make special orders for them. She got to her aunt's place and narrated her horrific ordeal. Her aunt laughed and told her it's very normal in that part of Igbo-land. She never went back to the SE again on her subsequent 9ja visits. undecided

See the below videolink. I once saw this on Nairaland sometime last year. angry

https://newsrescue.one/cannibalism-nigerians-speaking-igbo-cook-human-parts-video/

Perhaps, I've heard several of my Igbo friends that grew up in the SE not wanting to go back to there to settle due to this cannibalism thing. A good friend of mine that grew up in Owerri had to build a house there from parental pressure but never let his parents live there except for family gatherings. undecided

Ogun, Ondo, Ekiti are states.

Ilesha is a city.

Your reason for this?

My parents always tell me I can marry from anywhere as long as the person is Igbo and from a good family background ( except Enugu State, don't know why though)

Yoruber especially is a no no for me because their men are randy, useless and uncouth. Most of them can be very fetish, can't even date one talk more of marrying one.

Oga, your original post said Igbos eat people. I asked if she ate you and you're yet to answer. These friends of yours refusing to go back home, have they eaten you? Or do their families eat humans? I have "heard" that in the olden days, a part in Abia state used to eat humans. That was back then, not anymore. Your original post said Igbos, reason I quoted it. Igbos do not eat humans. Stop generalizing
