Is This History About Casava True Because I Dont Believe by kannex: 11:11am On Aug 11
I was just strolling round the internet and i decided to stop the strolling immediately when i get to wikipedia.com website so i was just reading a lot of history about diffrent people then i my mind just asked me to search casava, immediately i search for casava i started reading, after reading few lines of the article, i saw something that made me surprise and decided to stop reading further because i believe the history about casava in nigeria was a lie, according to wikipedia this is what i saw on Wikipedia website corcerning casava in nigeria.

Originally a crop of South America, it was introduced in to Nigeria's southern part during the period of slave trade proliferated by Portuguese explorers and colonizers in the sixteenth century. However, its importance to the country got a boost in the late nineteenth century when more formerly enslaved Nigerians returned to their homeland and introduced processing techniques. Over the years, it has become a major economic sustenance crop and it has attained the status of largest producer in the world with recorded production of 34 million tonnes and is a cash crop of great importance to the people of Nigeria.

To me i dont believe this history but if this history is true, answer this questions to prove that the history on casava in nigeria that is written on wikipedia website is true.

1. If casava was originally brough in to the southern part of nigeria by the Portuguese then what food was the southern part of nigeria eaten before the Portuguese arrived.

2. According to wikipedia, processing technique was only introduce to nigeria by formerly enslaved Nigerians who were returning to their home land which means that casava was just planted and was never being used to process garri or fufu, until the 19th century now my question is was the casava just planted in the southern part of nigeria without it been used or process to garri or fufu?.

3. wikipedia said that formerly enslaved Nigerians introduce the processing technique, how did this people came to know about this processing technique when garrri or fufu was not found or been sold in any north american countries.

4. If the processing technique was introduce in the 19th century, What was this people used in eating afang, oha, efo, egusi and other soup that that was been prepared by this people was it stone..

Please help me answer this questions to prove me wrong that the history concerning casava in nigeria is true according to wikipedia
