No part of Rivers was ever in Imo state.
Rivers was created in 1967, years before anything Imo was created. Thieves from East Central state wanted to grab land from Rivers(which is their usual way, land grabbing). But NBC had to step in and settle the issue.

Kinematics:It is what Gidgiddi is notorious for, land grabbing. The same ignorant Kanu patsy is claiming a chunk of Benue state belongs to Enugu/Anambra.
That boy has a lot of screws loose upstairs.

Yes Rivers state was created in 1967, but from what was it created? This area you are today calling Rivers State was land taken from 5 provinces, Portharcourt province, Yenagoa province, Degema province, Owerri province and Aba province
Places like Egbema and Etche used to be in Owerri province. Obigbo was in Aba province which eventually became part of Imo state. In 1976, there was a boundary adjustment which saw Obigbo removed from Imo state and put in Rivers state then renamed "Oyigbo"
Some people think Rivers state just dropped out of the sky but the reality is that Rivers state was was created out of land stolen from 5 provinces and two of those provinces, Owerri and Aba, are Igbo provinces.
Someday, we Igbos are going to ask for our land back and that means that Egbema, Obigbo, Etche, Omuma amongst others are returning back to us.
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by Kinematics: 4:47pm On Dec 12, 2020|
States are created from places. When Rivers was created, east central state and south east state were created as well. All the boundaries were carefully marked.
Lands were taken from several provinces to make several states not only in then Eastern region, but same was done in other regions as well.
Why are ibos still crying and wailing over this? When land was being demarcated everyone was in the know of what it is. Years later Imo was created and thieves from their wanted to lump Rivers land to their phantom Imo state, only for NBC to step in and settle matter.
Note that there was never a time that Oyigbo was in Abia/Imo state. Never. Oyigbo was from 1967 in Rivers, just a portion of the area was in contest until the place was given a natural body as the boundary which is Imo River.

Make it plain for all to understand sir.
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by oyatz(m): 6:59am On Dec 13, 2020|
Thanks for shedding light on this matter.
Was there any time that the name of the town was changed from Obigbo to Oyigbo?
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by Kinematics: 7:06am On Dec 13, 2020|
There was never a time.
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by oyatz(m): 8:30am On Dec 13, 2020|
Provinces, just like modern States are NOT ethnic homelands but units of administrations created by the British Colonial Government.
Owerri Province didn't mean that all the lands in the province belonged to Owerri or that all the people in the Province were Owerri people.
This is very similar to Enugu State where all the lands in the State are not necessarily Enugu lands.
However if IPOB and their sympathizers feel that the boundaries of Rivers State have been tampered with or there is encroachment into Imo or Abia States,
1) they can approach the National Boundaries Commission to look into it by urging the affected STATES to lodge complaints.
2) If some communities in Rivers State want to leave Rivers and be merged with Imo, they can petition the National Assembly through their Representatives.
It should however be noted that IPOB which is neither a State nor elected Representatives of the people concerned lack the locus standing to institute these changes.

So where did the issue of Obigbo come from?
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by Kinematics: 8:57am On Dec 13, 2020|
Its an issue fabricated by SE people. Yes the Asa Ndoki people are split into 2 states which is Rivers and Abia. Just like most states where you have some clans split into different states due to state creation.
Oyigbo is in Rivers, whereas Asa people in Abia call it obigbo. So the ibos in Abia are forcing the name they call it in Abia as the original name, they want Rivers people to take their ibo naming and drop the Rivers name.
This is very laughable even to a lunatic.
Note that majority of nonindigenes in oyigbo are from the SE especially Abia and Imo. Oyigbo is a boundary LGA and share some similarities with SE people due to proximity.
These ibos are the ones calling it obigbo and are going further to drag the lga into Abia.
Leave the ipoo story on nairaland flying everywhere, they'll never say the truth.
When Rivers was created in 1967 being one of the first 12 states created, the boundary was carefully drawn, however during the creation of Imo state in 1976 they wanted to drag part of Rivers including oyigbo into their new states, but the NBC had to disprove their claims.
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by oyatz(m): 9:09am On Dec 13, 2020|
Okay, I now understand the issue very well.
The name has always been Oyigbo but Igbo migrants in the Town call it Obigbo.

|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by pazienza(m): 9:51am On Dec 13, 2020|
Obiigbo was not in Rivers state in 1967.
It was in East central state.
Obiigbo was taken to Rivers state by Mammar Nasir boundary adjustment committee in 1976.
Once in Rivers state, the Ijaw controlled Igbophobic Old Rivers state renamed it Oyiigbo.
You will never see the name Oyiigbo in any document before 1975/76.
Just setting records right.
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by gidgiddy: 10:52am On Dec 13, 2020|
Thats to show you how much people twist simple simple history. A place has been known as Obigbo for hundreds of years. It is carved into Rivers state in 1976 and called 'Oyigbo' and they say that has always been its name.
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by AwkaFinest: 11:10am On Dec 13, 2020|
Lies from the east. Oyigbo has always been Rivers right from when Rivers was created in 1967. In 1976 when Imo was created thieves from the then imo wanted to annex oyigbo into their new state. But the NBC came to settle the matter with a clearly defined boundary between Rivers and the new state of Imo.
Land grabber kiss the truth.
Similar thing is happening among the Igbos and later we will say their land was stolen. When confab was talking about Orashi state I see deluded nincompoops from the east calling places in Imo whereas the orshi in question is the orashi area in Rivers and Bayelsa.
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by gidgiddy: 12:03pm On Dec 13, 2020|
And where was Obigbo before Rivers was created in 1967? What province was it in?
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by AwkaFinest: 12:47pm On Dec 13, 2020|
Its not a matter of what province or Eastern region. When the Eastern region was divided into East Central state, Rivers state and South East state in 1967 where was oyigbo placed? Clearly Rivers.
Your thief elders from Imo agitated for a state called Imo which was created in 1976. Your elders were not satisfied, they wanted lands from Rivers to be added to their new state. NBC had to come into the picture to solve the matter.
Ask yourself was it only Eastern region that was split? No. Midwestern region was also splited, western region and other regions were splited as well, but its only the igbos we see cry everyday online.
There is no place like obigbo in Rivers state and there has never been. Rivers has 23 LGAs and one is called oyigbo lga.
Kiss the truth.
IMO state created out of Afikpo, Oguta, Nkwerre, Mbano, Mbaise, Bende, Arochukwu, Umuahia, Okigwe, Orlu, Oru, Mbaitoli/Ikeduri, Etiti, Ohafia, Northern Ngwa, Owerri, Aba and Ukwa.
Never a time was Oyigbo in Imo State.
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by Dedetwo(m): 1:23pm On Dec 13, 2020|
I guess by your silly insinuation, it makes her Ijo or even Yoruba. Only a dunce will not know John is a Judeo-Christian thing cum English. If the wearer of such crappy name is not European or North American, the origin of such figure becomes debatable. It will amount to basement idiocy for anybody to question the cultural origin of lady whose first or middle is Amarachi, the surname is Uzor and hailed from Ahoada.
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by Dedetwo(m): 1:41pm On Dec 13, 2020|
When the Rivers State was created in 1967, East Central State was created too. I was born and raised in the neighborhood of Obigbo and it was never a part of Rivers State until the 1976 draconian boundary adjustment. Obigbo and Umuagbayi were integral part of Asa County Council and later Ukwa Division then LGA. Before the Nigeria\Biafra war, Obigbo did not have central school. Anybody from Kom-kom, Obigbo, Obuzor and even Owaza had to come to IPU Central School, Imo River to take examination for first school leaving certificate.
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by IGBOSON1: 2:29pm On Dec 13, 2020|
I asked that kinematics dude the same question yesterday....but in a way that left him no room to manoeuvre and blag his way out of! Then GBAM....i was hit by the spambot and banned till later today, and the post was hidden! Makes you wonder if some of these Igbo hating bigots are really who they say they are!
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by freshvine(f): 2:34pm On Dec 13, 2020|
For those that says Ekpeye is not Igboid, the ogba of ogbaland is HRM, Chukwumelem Nnam Obi 11.
I don't need a soothsayer to interpret those names to me. Igbos have several dialects doesn't mean the nation doesn't exist.
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by gidgiddy: 3:14pm On Dec 13, 2020|
The guy said that Obigbo was part of Rivers state when it was created by Gowon in 1967. He does not even know that Obigbo was in the East central state until 1976 when Murtala Mohammed split the East Central state into Imo and Anambra state. Obigbo was then in Imo state but a boundary adjustment done later that year put Obigbo in Rivers state and it was renamed Oyigbo
They dont teach history so a lot people dont know much. Thats why Wike doesnt know the history of his own state. He kept shouting that people were renaming the place to Obigbo not knowing thats its always been the ancestral name of the place. Wike does not even know that Obigbo indigenes are Asa/Ndoki people who are ethnic Igbos. He carried on making a fool of him self that Rivers state has been hosting Igbos without knowing that the Etches of Etche LGA, Egbema's of Egbema Ndoni LGA and Asa/Ndoki of Obigbo are all indigenous ethnic Igbos of Rivers state.
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by AwkaFinest: 4:45pm On Dec 13, 2020|
Stop writing nonsense. Oyigbo was never in east Central state. Liars!
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by AwkaFinest: 4:49pm On Dec 13, 2020|
Ekpeye is an Igboid language. That doesn't mean Ekpeye is igbo. Also take note that Ogba is not Ekpeye.
The English language we are typing with is a Germanic language, this doesn't mean English is German.
My igbo brothers make we get sense small naa
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by Kinematics: 5:08pm On Dec 13, 2020|
Try another lie and show me where Oyigbo was not part of Rivers from 1967.
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by Kinematics: 5:09pm On Dec 13, 2020|
What was your question
|Re: WIKE SHOT Himself(own Goal) by Kinematics: 5:10pm On Dec 13, 2020|
Show me where oyigbo was after 1967. Please show me i beg you...
