The only tribe that dominate popoulously in their lands, second most populated outside their homelands after the indigenes in states within Nigeria and scattered in every nook and cranny of the world are the Igbos.
They have town union and ethnic union associations in every country and continent in the world.
It is just impossible to downplay their huge population.

Yorubas can also be found in foreign country but Igbos are far more than them in foreign countries.... Talking from experience. Maybe u have not traveled to any Asian or Europian country that's why it's hard for u to understand. The only European nation u can find Yorubas more than Igbo's is England.

Even in South and North American nations, Igbo's also outnumbered them by far.

My man stop talking nonsense

Even when people were evacuated from South Africa recently, we saw a great deal of Yorubas coming home, who would have thought considering the numbers of igbos in South Africa

Yorubas don't often travel to other places in Nigeria as much as igbos often do, but when it comes to travelling out of this country, Yorubas would give anyone a run for their money.
