Port Harcourt was NEVER called Igweocha.
That is a lie from the Pit of hell.

Like all lies if ignored and repeated often it becomes a truism

Port Harcourt originally referred to the Port full stop. As development came and the area developed into a city all the villages around became subsumed in what we now call Port Harcourt

These are villages around Diobu Ogbunabali all the way to to Rebisi Elelenwo and Woji.
There are hundreds of villages in Obio Akpor and Rebisi e.g Rumubiakani Rumuomasi Rumueme Rumuadaolu Rumuola Rumuogba etc mostly Ikwerre whilst a few places have Ijaw names e.g. Borokiri, Abuloma.


There is nothing like Igweocha anywhere. Those who propagate this lie do not know PH.

There is no place that does not have a name. So where exactly is this "Igweocha" ?


These desperate folk have gone to the extent of writing fake stories on Wikipedia but a simple question busts their lie.


Which place exactly in PH is called Igweocha?

eko is a corruption of awori word for eko'ata. Meaning where pepper is been packed. Idumota was originally a pepper farm for the aworis who re the first settler in lagos.
Idumota is known as eko ,but people that come to idumota for trading popularize the name
you are a victim of your own people's propaganda. "idu" means "Edo". Anywhere in Lagos that has such prefix, bears strong testament of Edo ancestral lordship of Lagos.

So create a thread for that and remove Port Harcourt from the subject.
Linking the two subjects means that this thread is dead on arrival.

IPOBians and Biafrans in the house, don't mind our Yoruba brothers, the name for Lagos in Yoruba is Enugu.

Now go claim Lagos and add it into Biafra since it's now no man's land.

It's difficult to swallow that an indigenous people does not have a name for a place belonging to them, except that place does not in fact belong to them.

Portharcourt was so named by luguard in 1912. Before the Christening, the area was called Igweocha by the natives. No wonder till this day some people in Elele will rather say "I am going to Igweocha" than saying "I am going to Port Harcourt"

On the contrast, Yoruba's fiercely lay claim to Lagos. But I do not know or have not heard about its Yoruba name. Maybe there simply isn't . I hope I would be proved wrong. This is because "Lagos" is a name that takes after a port in Portugal and was given by the Portuguese. Eko the only known native name is an Edo name (meaning war camp) given by the Benin kingdom.

I need Yoruba to tell us, What is the Yoruba name of Lagos?




Port-Harcourt is Borikiri and not the Rubbish you called it.

Before you start feeling yourself, it’s originally Ilu-Awori, conquered by the Edo king with the assistance of Ashipa(in Yoruba it means war starter) which was believed to be a prince, after they settle the dispute, the awori told ashipa to be their king which is the first known king, some places in Yoruba land are set up without a king(example is Ibadan which was set up mostly by warriors) and you can check the names of the king after Ashipa, from kosoko to Akintoye, to Adele all are Yoruba names now lemme burst your brain, this history is mainly for Lagos island, During the Yoruba revolution war, Epe and ikeja(then ikija) were under command of alake of Egba which was a block for the Ibadan warrior supply. Don’t be an ignorant in history, Wikipedia you are reading is just to fuel your hate Eko was adopted as the name same way America is Portuguese, or will you ask the Navajos or the cowboys the real name of America?. Epe, ikorodu, ikija,Eko(lagos island) all have different history so calm your balls, check the picture below(b4 British happened)

You have no idea what you are talking about

Eko(Benin) means Oko (Yoruba)

Bush or Farm

The island was a big farm before colonisation

Oshodi is not an Edo word But Tapa(Nupe) word named after a prominent Tapa son in Lagos history who was Balogun Tapa Oshodi

Balogun Oshodi fled Nupe land to escape Fulani prosecution of those Nupe that refused to accept Islam

His kinsmen that fled with him are now found in Ibarapa area of Oyo state and their town is called Tapa (Yoruba name for nupe)
