Ikwerres origin is from slave trade, they are descendants of slaves the Arochukwus captured from Ibo hinterlands and sold through okrika waterways,
when slave trade ended, some of them who were waiting to be sold were released and they settled in their present location only to be populated by migrants from etche, ngwa etc
that's the origin of the hatred against Igbos in the hinterland.
ikwerre elders know this history


Lolz. Pitiable Whöre. You have manufactured rubbish from your smelly anus. Stvpid Asa Harlot, Ikwerre is not the reason for your bad roads in Obigbo, neither are we responsible for your political sidelining. You can cross the Imo River back into Abia state, We don't care. gringrin

If you scratch the cover of this amorphous BRACED group, you'll find that

1) they are anti-Amaechi
2) they are sub-group of APC controlled by jabandit of SW who sees Amaechi as a threat to his already failed presidential ambition.
3) The peter ochei guy from yoruboid/bini origin is not ikwerre is neither qualified to speak for the Ikwerre tribe.
4) jagabandit couldn't get an Ikwerre guy to make this Anti-Ameachi statement because most Ikwerres are either pro-Amaechi or pro-PDP

From the points above, we can make an informed inference on who is beating the drum in the bush for chalartans like peter ochei to dance. We are not all fools. grin grin

Dalu rinne nwanna. I'm very conscious of the pitiable vibration from our Ikwerre kins and it's quite annoying yet I see it best we endure their folly. We are a blessed people and any group of people who associate with us become progressive which clever Ikwerres have noticed. Only the local and timid ones exhibit such brazen denial/ self hate. I have some of them as acquaintances and we do chat. Sometimes we speak Igbo together and I've discussed this particular issue with one of them. He's quite conciliatory and blends in with other Igbos. Another one I know even participates in Igbo soccer competition and relates well too. One thing you should bear in mind is that once faced with the bigger picture, the Ikwerres suddenly realize that the little difference isn't sufficient to dissociate themselves. They're Igbos and that's what they'll remain in the foreseeable future. You must know that what you see a good number of them display is an institutionalized denial backed-up with an oath in the shrines especially the immediate generation post Biafran war. It's not easy to just break all of a sudden. If we must unite with them, we must continue including them in our affairs despite the rejection since they're yet to officially reject Ndigbo in a plesbecite. Civil war hangover/survival instinct is really brutal. You can imagine what they're going through battling with themselves as they reject their own in the present time of peace. Any of them who leaves Rivers state quickly changes that venom because reality faces him. He may contest being Igbo but won't be hard about it. Many of the new generation are questioning this paradox I tell you. Our steadfastness will pay in the long run.
I can't say everything here our enemies lose sleep just to see ways they can stop our glory. They're scavenging for everything they can use to put a wedge among us. If you bear this in mind you'll be more cautious when discussing our sociopolitical involvements here on nairaland.
Politics is very deep. If you're good in board games like Chess and Draught, you'll understand what's happening in Nigeria. Some moves are not necessarily for your own plan but they're made to cause problems for your opponent. This is the concern of all these non-Igbos who create topics everyday seeking for Igbo clans that they'll encourage to reject being Igbo. Do they love these clans? No, yet they'll still encourage them. We must persevere in building our nation bearing in mind all our clans including those with identity crisis until after a plesbecite. Nigeria is dead already; her carcass is smelling at present. We remains is her disintegration which will happen so soon. Let's be on the watch out.

Nwanne. I disagree with you.

Ikwerre are not Igbos and must be treated as such by Ndiigbo.

It doesn't matter what our detractors do or think.
What matters is what we do for ourselves.

The non Igbos are not responsible for Ikwerre or Ogba Igbophobic ways. They are even helping us bring these Igbophobes to the limelight so that we can sensitize our numerous ignorant people about them.

We lose nothing from purging Igbophobic groups (Ogba, Ikwerres and Co) masquerading behind our language and names, from us and relating with them strictly on official and non emotional basis.
It's to our own benefit.

Any Igbo speaking group that turns Igbophobic is a danger to the rest of us as must be cut off and baracaded from infecting or injuring the rest of us.
We can always agree to disagree.

Are you close to Nnamdi Kanu. If you are, pls tell him to stop brainwashing illiterate Igbos. One Igbo boy from Nkwerre has refused to renew his driver's license, refused to apply for National ID and has broken his voters card some years back. Recently, he needed to submit a very important form with a means of Identification and he couldn't. I really felt for him. Nnamdi Kanu made him miss a big opportunity. Same Nnamdi Kanu is chilling overseas. It's a shame.
Lol. If your stories are true, then the guy is foolish. You can't destroy your present form of identification while your dearest country is yet to be re-established. Nnamdi Kanu is not to be blamed for his folly.
IPOB is a just organization fighting for the liberation of the oppressed people of Biafra. We're are also open to alliance with neighbouring groups who think they're being enslaved in Nigeria. So far we've endure the killings of our members by the Nigerian government while people like you cheer them on. Everything is noted for revisit in the future. Your Nigeria is dead at present and the stench is too much but your senses have been deadened by hate. Soon you'll be the victim of the fulanis you presently cheer. How many of your likes have died so far?

when slave trade ended, some of them who were waiting to be sold were released and they settled in their present location only to be populated by migrants from etche, ngwa etc
that's the origin of the hatred against Igbos in the hinterland.
ikwerre elders know this history
This is the reality on ground. Ikwerre hate on other Igbos was caused by the Aros who sold them as slaves to the whiteman. Elechi Amadi said something close to this but shame didn’t allow him reveal the whole truth. Ikwerre and Okrika are slaves taken from the Igbo hinterlands who were about to be shipped to the white mans land only for slavery to come to an end in the 19th century. However, the population of the Ikwerre swelled when other clans such as Etche, Owerri, Ekpeye and Isuama as well as Kalabari migrated there to form what is known as Iwhereoha. Before the civil war, the house of Okpo Wagidi of Isiokpo (Aros) used to be the Eze/Chief of the Ikwerre, but as soon as the war ended the like of Elechi Amadi, and Obi Wali who suffered from low caste status as a child dethroned Aro headship of Ikwerreland, instigating hate against them and installed the Ogbakor Ikwerre to lead their clan. Late Obi Wali himself when alive wrote about this as the reason for the animosity. Ikwerre land in ancient time was Etche land and partly Ekpeye from the western flank, that Arochukwu slave hunters turned to a slave camp.

This is the reason why the Ikwerre are trying to form princely royalty from Benin in order to hide their Osu/slavery origin. While Okrika claim Ijaw origin to hide their slavery ancestry, Ikwerre attach to Benin to do same.

Bottom line, any Igboid group in Rivers state claiming Benin had a slave past. The same goes for any section claiming Ijaw.

As insignificant as they appear they're still important. Timing is very essential in everything. Trust me bro, IPOB is playing a big role which some of you don't understand. Do you notice Orji Uzo Kalu's trajectory? Do you know why Ohaneze was deregistered? They just had an understanding with IPOB shortly before the hatchet. The idea is simply the quash any point of a United front. They'll encourage individualism which they expect to work to their favour. Same old strategy. The Ikwerres fell for it; why do you want to repeat the same mistake? We should know better having been more exposed than them. See how the Southern Kaduna people are being wiped out gradually... No middle belt group is talking. Is this what you want for any Igbo clan? If the middle belt have a United front, fulanis won't dare it. Leave being emotional about their obvious tomfoolery. It's sapping your intrinsic energy already.
Now, any Igbo or clan who decides to join forces with our enemies will be treated worst even than the enemy. Therefore, overlook it and focus on the bigger task.

We are strong enough and don't need Ikwerres for anything.

Are you not aware That Igbo denial in Rivers state is driven by Ikwerres.

Ikwerre Igbo hate is mortal and inbuilt.
No Fulani or Hausa man caused it. If you have lived in Rumu villages in PH, you will know this.

My problem with IPOB is that you lots run away from responsibilities, you prefer to fight foreign non existent enemies than the in-house enemies whose damaging effect is more visible.

Ikwerre issue is not caused by any external forces. It might have been started by external forces, but it's currently being generated, amplified and distributed by Ikwerres. Ikwerre must be held fully responsible for their Igbo hate and every one of them, must be visited by equal measure of hate by Ndiigbo.

When we are done dealing with them, then we can look back and see how the outsiders played a role.

It's akin also to how IPoB and NK have refused to hold looting Igbo governors especially Abia state responsible for the immediate marginalization of the region by embezzling the little funds allocated to them, but are more interested in chasing Buhari and the FG.

You lots like to put the cart before the horse alot, and it's no longer looking bearable for Igbos like myself.

Ikwerre is fully responsible for Ikwerre Igbophobia and must be held fully accountable for it by Ndiigbo.
No amount of blame shifting to make villains look like victims will work.

Young man listen and listen good. We have established the facts here, laid it bare and made it accepted.

Don't Just swoop into this thread to take us back to square one.


History of Ikwerres briefly::: Before their Ancestors left Ife on a sojourn to Edo till their present location...it was captured.

Ikwerres are Bini/Edos and by extension belongs to expansive Yorubaland...also proved.


Since binis themselves draws their breathing and sojourn from Yorubas and Ikwerres left Bini after that then it is safe to say that Ikwerres were originally Yorubas.

Your brother lawani once proved it. Look up for the research.



What a disconnect!

In Ugbodu, North Delta, smack in middle of Anioma, and a direct Yoruba ancestry rooted to Akure/Owo, they have Yoruba name and Ibo name. Anyone and everyone acknowledge they are Yoruba. Even their language is proto-Yoruba.

It is only in dressing they appear to be Ibo.


In Ikwere, they speak pure Ibo, names are Ibo, dress like Ibo and even have eat Ibo food.

Ikwerre must drop Ibo name before I will be convinced they are not Ibo.

While I agree with your statement about them sustaining the bad blood, I'll still disagree with your timing of we dishing them same treatment. It will be to our(all Igbo including Ikwerre) own loss. Do you try to understand why it's been sustained? They harbour the fear that hinterland Igbos will come and take over their political power and relegate them. This is their interpretation of the term Igbo to them. We from the hinterland have bounced back and exceeded everyone's expectation that's why the Ikwerres fear the Igbo association. Your mode of resolving the problem will worsen it. Our inclusive nature without any demands from them is been critically weighed at present among the new generation especially as economy of Nigeria is dying now. With too much suffering in the land, associations grow. If you reciprocate in kind, you're making it impossible to resolve. Was Julius Agwu not seen and accepted like every other Igbo? What about 'Wene Mighty'? Mercy Chinwo kwanu? Are these not proud Igbos? I don't even want to mention politicians from their side. Let me tell you their expectation. They expect other Igbos not to use the Igbo tag and enjoy any benefit from PH. They'll easily be convinced if you tell them that though they're Igbos, other Igbos won't participate in any politics of their territory nor seek job or derive any benefit from the association. However, they don't know that by so doing, they'll deny their own clan the benefit from the larger Igbo nation and territory. This is the bone of contention. This is why we insist on including them in our project so that when faced with that option, their eyes will open. We're more exposed than them and should respond better than the negative vibe they're emitting.
Finally, that Amaechi claims to be Igbo and hence should be the choice in any political option for Igbos can't be correct. He being Igbo remains the same like other Igbos vying for the same position. What will determine Igbo consensus will be ones track record. What benefits has any Igbo vying for a post brought to Igboland in general? Ponder on what I wrote.

You have lots of Germans, Spanish, British, African Americans etc who have been in America from anywhere between 400 - 700 years yet these people know their history.

They know from whence they came. Their culture, language, traditions may have been completely eroded but they still know and can trace the origin of their ancestors.

This is the same with the ikwerres. You can't say "oh they have a similar culture and language to the igbos and hence must be igbos".... that is a primitive way of reasoning.

What matters and will always matter is where the ikwerres migrated from. If they migrated from the Bini kingdom like they say then they are rightly descendants of the Binis.

It is foolish to think you can know more about a people than the people themselves.

However, i think what can finally lay this issue to rest is an ancestry DNA test but even at that the igbos will say the test has been compromised by igbo haters that is if the test results show that the ikwerres are Binis by extension.

what a foolish statement

What a disconnect!

In Ugbodu, North Delta, smack in middle of Anioma, and a direct Yoruba ancestry rooted to Akure/Owo, they have Yoruba name and Ibo name. Anyone and everyone acknowledge they are Yoruba. Even their language is proto-Yoruba.

It is only in dressing they appear to be Ibo.


In Ikwere, they speak pure Ibo, names are Ibo, dress like Ibo and even have eat Ibo food.

Ikwerre must drop Ibo name before I will be convinced they are not Ibo.

On this topic I stand with my in-laws. grin

Sorry ikwerri people are Yoruba please take them we don't need Yoruba blood in Igbo nation

Shut up there!
Ikewrre are Ibo people.

Na Ugbodu people are Yoruba. We and Ibo are co-owners of ANIOMA.

In fact, im even being generous sef. Igbo has zero claim in Anioma.

All Aniomans are settlers from a different origin. The strongest origin is Yoruba in Ugbodu.

All others have lost t heir originality.

I am a proud Igboman who dislikes how IPOB go about disgracing the name of Biafra and bringing the Igbo nation into state of disrepute.
Go through my post history I was always a pro Biafran and a member of Biafran Actualisation Forum(BAF)moderated by Dr.Oguchi Nkwocha in 2000s I wonder where you was then,probably in secondary school?
There's no way you can be Igbo because we Igbos are full of wisdom. Anybody that is against peaceful and unarmed IPOB, is not only a paid agent of division but also a slave fighting very hard to keep what his white criminal masters ( lugard and Co.) created.
