Igboland Is Not Southeast, See 1856 and 1911 Map by British Researchers | #IgbereTV

For those with good knowledge of history, the geographical location of Igbos and Igboland is one of the earliest well defined with its coordinate as far back as 1856 before Nigeria came in to being.This is the official documentation of Igbo boundaries, a people who have lived in the forest region for thousands of years. This is also the Igbo cultural areas (ICA).

The maps and descriptions below describes Igboland and not southeast. Southeast was created following balkanization of old Eastern Region in 1967,almost over 100 years after igboland is already defined in 1856.

Yes South East was just a creation during Abacha Reign I don't know why some people just want to change history .. South East does not define igbo land it's a GeoPolitical Zone and not an Ethnic Configuration

South south is just a geopolitical region, it doesn't necessarily describe an ethnic configuration

But isn't this ironic, IPOB will complain that Nigeria is a British creation yet they use a book or map written by the British to defend their land grabs...

The racists British who ignored ethnic and cultural differences in people are now suddenly very credible.

Oh the British are now saints for expressing their ignorance in putting different tribes with different but similar language as one aka Ibo?

Balfour Baikie was one of the first white men Igbos met in person, and actually made friends with Igbos.

His name "baikie" is why Igbos started calling all white people "bekee". To this day, Igbos still call white people "bekee" because of him
