They are not Yorubas either, and why did you mentioned Yoruba.

Igbos and Yorubas are not the only tribes in Southern Nigeria

Are you talking about the same Ikwerre people that are part of those who seized the Igbo people properties after the civil war?


They seized their properties because they dont know Igbo people and they are not Igbos

That’s exactly what I’m trying to say.

The Ikwerres already passed a message through that action that they are NOT Igbos.

My question to the Igbo folks on here is that, what is the importance of trying to claim Ikwerres are Igbos?

it was the ijaws who were controlling Rivers state as at 1970 and it was the leadership of rivers state who started claiming abandoned property. You think rifrafs can claim a property they didn't build without government backing?

The ijaws are the cause of the whole Ikwere are not Igbo saga..they needed the Ikwerres to accept a minority tag in order to dominate them in the new state. All they had to do was give people Buchi Emecheta a platform.

Today many ikwere are realising the need to integrate with the larger igbo nation in order to retain dominance in River state. Now yorubas have joined the ijaws to repeat the trash that Ikwere say they are not igbo. Why should Igbos listen to ijaw and yorubas on this matter?

I repeat post one actual ikwere who says they are not Igbo, I will post two ikwere who say they are igbos. Deal?

Nwanne, Ikwerres were part and parcel of that abandoned property saga. They even brag about it.
Men like "Bekee" and other Ikwerres benefitted from Igbo abandoned property.
Stop holding brief for those lots.
The Ijaw did nothing to Ikwerres, Ikwerres are responsible for their own actions. Rivers state was planned without Ikwerreland and other Igbo speaking groups in Rivers as part of it, but the likes of "Oriji" (google about him, he was a very Igbophobic Ikwerre man) gate crashed on the Ijaw Rivers state, seeking inclusion. Ijaws out of greed and seeing opportunity to expand their own territories, accepted the offer, which was also good for the FG who were happy to see off the balkanization of Igboland.

The Ogbako Ikwerre, the apex sociocultural Ikwerre organization have consistently maintained they are not Igbo. I posted the video of Ogbakor Ikwerre convention in Atlanta USA where Celestine Omehia and Ogbakor Ikwerre elders were mocking and cajoling Ndiigbo about the Biafra war thing.
If I find the video, I would post it to you.

If you live in PH, especially in those Rumu villages as an Igbo man, you will witness first hand the harsh realities of Ikwerre hate for Ndiigbo. If you can't visit those Rumu villages, you can at least join Ikwerre facebook pages and interact with them. You will be heartbroken and you will witness an Igbophobia more concentrated than what any other Nigerian group can muster, if you join those Ikwerre pages. I bet you, your life and perception of Ikwerre and their co travellers will never remain same after that experience, it's an eye opener.

Well you have your own reason. Although to me, it is a fruitless effort ithout much advantage to start trying to lay claim to people that some of them don't want to identify with you.

Take a cue from the Yorubas for example, the people of Itsekiri sometime claims that they don't want to identify with us and the Yorubas already stopped bothering about them. Although some of them want to, but others don't feel like.

One think I thank the Yoruba ancestors for is about fighting a war of consolidation among the Yorubas (Ekiti, Egba, etc.) and making sure we unite as one Yoruba entity forever. All other Yoruba sub-group like Itsekiri etc. already owned their destiny, they should be allowed to own their new identity without interference.

If you don't unify them in those past days, I am sorry it will be very hard to unify them in this age.

That is my own line of contribution to the thread.

They are igbos. Their names and language are well understood by igbos..

Igbos and them answer same names but politics of Nigeria and the civil war thing made them to isolate themselves to be more acceptable to other Nigerians.

But if riot should broke up in the North. And u mention your name as an ikwere man... Then you will know that the average aboki regard ikwere as igbos

What Aboki regard Ikwerre as, is non of our business. The normal Aboki regard everyone in SS as Igbo when it's expedient, and remember they are not Igbos, when it's also expedient. We would be stupid as a people to allow people to be playing games with Igbo identity, like its a cheap thing Igbo hating groups can always give to anyone or acquire themselves, as well as easily dispose of, when necessary. Only a foolish race will accept such, and we Ndiigbo are no foolish race.


Our business is what Ikwerre regard themselves as and how they behave towards us.
That should be our one and only business.

Ikwerre is not Igbo. Get used to it.

The Kalabari, Andoni, Opobo, Bonny,Okirika, Nkoro, are all proud Ijaws.

Only Oyigbo and to an extent Egbema (Many here are now becoming Igbophobic) are Igbos.

Please make a point to correct your self.

The fathers and grand fathers of those insisting that they are not Igbos today, clearly documented their tribe as Igbo before the civil war.

Igbos can't force anyone to be Igbo, but at least the records remain undisputable.

When a city calls itself Obigbo, "the heart of Igbos", it doesn't matter whether the Igbo name was adulterated by Dietta Spiff and Ken Saro Wiwa or not.

Even Bayelsa State has none ijaw ethnic group, same with Anambra having Igala.
Rivers is not an Ijaw state but by LGAs, population and vote spread, Ijaw constitute the largest (10 ½ LGAs) next to Ogoni (4 LGAs). The so called Ikwerre has just 3½ LGAs, Etche has 1, Omuma has 1, and Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni all share 1, Oyigbo 1.

The reason Ikwerre is still on the saddle is because of the political differences that Wike benefitted from.

Now lemme tell you, the entire 3½ Ikwere LGAs share same senatorial district (Rivers Southeast) with just 2½ Ijaw LGAs (Okrika, Ogu/Bolo) alongside Omuma and Etche. while Rivers West has 8 LGAs, 6 are Ijaws and 2 are non Ijaws. In Rivers southeast, of the 7 LGAs, 2 are Ijaws, 4 Ogoni while 1 Oyigbo.

Ijaw is the ONLY ethnic that has at least 2LGAs across the 3 zones in the state.

Ijaw has the highest number is LGA
Highest number of Wards
Highest number of HoR
Highest number in HoA

And presently occupies 2 out of the 3 Senatorial seats in the state

Let us learn to speak with facts!

BTW Rivers is not an Ijaw state... We are all stakeholders including non indigenous residents of the state

Etche and Omuma are one ethnic group called Etche.
Calling Omuma an ethnic group is like calling Emohua an ethnic group, because they are not part of an LGA called Ikwerre LGA.

I agree with you on Ijaw being the major ethnic group in Rivers state, even the Engenni in Ahoada West identify as Ijaws.
