True, but to an average yoruba man in Ibadan, all these names belong to omo ibo.

They want to rule nigeria, but they have ZERO knowledge about the country they want to rule. Make dem come carry am na. grin

Yes. But I'm focusing on surnames as it is a stronger evidence of a shared history.

Elechi
Enenche

Elechi and Amadi if Idoma at all bear them should be found around Oju and Obi LGA. Do Igbos bear Enenche? I don't think. Just like I doubt if idoma bear Eze and Obi

So stop rewriting history

WeneWali:


Raped who? Where and how?

Are you yorubas not tired of this your baseless propaganda. Where is Nzeogwu from? The one claimed masterminded the 'Igbo coup'. Is he not from the same SS where I come from?

Even my calabar friend who served with me in Ibadan, you yorubas labe them 'omo ibo'. So why are you deceiving yourself here?
pls let's not derail the thread.

I equally don't know the meaning of those names, but it's very common in northern igbo communities i.e Nnsuka, Enugu ezike etc.

The most useless entity on Earth are Ipobs.

Tomorrow you create another Moniker, claiming kwale in Delta.

This is your moniker for claiming Ikwerre.

What happened to your father's compound.
