Igweocha is how Igbo people like to refer to portharcourt the way they refer to America as obodo oyibo or the north as Igweawusa. It makes them think portharcourt is part of their Biafra....you can call it 'delusional attarcheesm'.

grin

Igweocha or Iguocha is the original name of the place before the British came to call it Portharcourt

Original name by who? Is there a village or town in portharcourt that is called igwocha? Portharcourt is refered to as igwuocha by Igbos in the same fashion that they refer to America as Obodo oyibo, North as Igweawusa, Garbon or wherever as panya. Unless you claim these are the original names of these places. Are you aware that at some point the Igbos were calling Calabar 'New Onitsha? You guys should just stop deceiving yourselves.

The land was called Iguocha or Igweocha, it was the farm land of the Ikwerre people. The British bought around 1912 and started building on it a city they called 'Portharcourt'. Portharcourt has since expanded to include many other areas but most Igbo speaking people such as the Ikwerres, who are the original owners of the land, still call the city by its original name of 'Iguocha'

What is so hard to understand here?

House Nigg@ per excellence, slave who is madly Inlove with his chains.
Can you go to Britant and rename any of their cities to your name?
Burkina Faso and Zimbabwe are eg, 's of countries that reversed their colonial names to its original default names
.
There's nothing like igweocha in port Harcourt.

There is no community or any Ikwerre ancestral name called Iguocha. So it’s not the original name, the original name for that part of Port harcourt is “Rebisi”

It is you igbo migrants who referred to it as Iguocha which became popular today.
