Exactly.
The problem of Kalabari is just that Ijaw that they know when they came are Saying that they are their progenitors. If you noticed, for some reasons Ndigbo were not included in the writeup because somehow they know that Nobody, absolutely NOBODY in Southern Nigeria will drag age with Ndigbo.
BTW, I stumbled across an article about the origin of Christianity in Igbo land (I will post it in due time) with Ubani clearly spelt and marked as where Christianity started in Igboland with one event at Easter of 1826 if I am not mistaking.
New Calabar (Kalabari) and Brass People were featured in the article with their Dẹ̀ị́ty. The boundaries of the three groups were clearly stated.
New Calabar people worshipped Shark (I am surprised that sharks were that rampant down there at that time), Brass people worshipped Rock Python while Ubani People worshipped Iguana (one big monitor lizard like that).
So the OP Mr Vintagepipes should work on uncovering his people's original name before anything because Kalabari is still from British "New Calabar"
.

If it hasn't been confirmed whether Kalahari is Ijaw, is it Ndoki that is Ijaw.


Many bastards here say Spanish and Portuguese are alike but not the same therefore Igbo speaking of South South are not Ndigbo.


Even if we excuse language, the names of the villages attest to who they are.




How exactly does this matter relate to Igbo sir?
Re: Kalabari Is NOT Ijaw - Kalabari Groups Warn by Eastlink(m): 5:32pm On Sep 03, 2021
Why is this news? Kalabari has never claimed Ijaw from antiquity. The fake central Ijo dialect as propounded by the Izon landgrabbers from Bayelsa was mainly gotten from the old Kalabari language which was recognized in the former Eastern region. They were five official languages in the old eastern region which included Igbo, Efik, Kalabari, Ibibio, and Ekoi. Kalabari was the 2nd most spoken language in the riverine Niger-Delta after Igbo. Igbo however began losing relevance after the war.

Kalabari existed before the Portuguese brought the Ujos from Togo area. Even the language known as Ibani spoken in Finima and Wakrike was gotten from Kalabari. The origin of Kalabari can be traced to a mixture of several group such as Igbo, Ibibio and Edo. The Ijaws came late.

I expect more rebruttal in the coming days from other groups illegally landgrabbed by the Izons into their fanthom Ijaw republic.

Crap! Rants from a Bayelsa asylum seeker in P/H.

So who supported the Kalabari for Governor if not an Ikwerre man. Where did Tonye Cole get his support from? Did Okrika support him? We all know how Okrika people rallied behind Wike.

Have the Okrikans ever supported the Kalabari? Kalabari is even near. Did the Okrikans support the Bonny/Opobo when their son Peterside ran for Governorship? Even Peterside knew he was a lost cause in Okrika and began soliciting for Igbo votes. But too bad the Igbos who have been brainwashed by IPOB supported PDP, thinking a vote for APC is a vote for the north.

Mr Man if we check history, you'll find out that the Okrika have a selfish tendency to support only themselves and recently the Ikwerre. The tendency of an old rivalry with Kalabari will always throw a spanner to such support. Ada George was Okrika and we know why he won Governorship in 1992.

Pushing the buck. Odili never claimed to be Igbo. If Odili in the height of his political ascendency didn't claim Igbo is it now he will? Second, Peter Odili was the political son of Ada George the Okrika man who institutionalized cultism in Okrikaland. Don't forget Odili was his deputy in 1992. When Melford Okilo was Governor in 1979-1983 there was nothing like cultism.
Ada George brought it. And it was from Okrika land that cultism was exported to other parts of Rivers state.

You can ask Odili who used Igbo votes to remain in power. And the Ikwerre beginning from Rotimi Amaechi learnt from him.

Dakuku Peterside though genuine almost applied the same tactics but his association with APC in 2015 didn't win the heart of IPOB who were instrumental to Wike's emergence. So nothing like imported votes. If you must win election into the Brick house you must seek votes from the non-indigenes mostly those from Imo and Abia who populate Rivers state.

So not yet Uhuru for PDP as Wike through his Oyigbo act have severed ties with IPOB his benefactor. As it stands if Dakuku Peterside or Tonye Cole emerges as APC flagbearer they'll emerge victorious.

For Tacha, her non-challant attitude made her lose BBN to Mercy. Her pride made her lose her support base to Mercy who was strategic till the end.

Stop typing nonsense like the lying devil that you are, there was nothing like cultism in Okrika until the arrival of Odili. Yes we have ethnic clashes with the Ogoins, but there was never cultist in Okrika, it was Odili who single handedly empower the likes of Ateke tom and Asari with guns you lying bastard.

Asari was empowered by Obasanjo not Odili. For Ateke Tom, Odili used him same as Soboma George. Men like Sekibo too was instrumental to the rise of Ateke.

I would like you to inform your Kalabari king, Chiefs and Elders to desist on things that get to do with INC and IYC since they are not Ijaws.

And for your final warning Bille is an ancient Ijaw clan in Rivers State and has never be part of Kalabari on any second. Whatever you are writing or doing concerning Kalabari please don't add Bille Kingdom to it else I would find you out.....

THE FAIR HISTORY ABOUT ORIGIN OF KALABARI PEOPLE (AWOME) ................
WHO ARE THE KALABARI'S...
WHY SHOULD KALABARI PEOPLE BE ADDRESSED AND IDENTIFIED AS KALABARI'S AND SHOULDN'T BE SUBJECTED TO ANY OTHER ETHNICITY/TRIBE BUT AS KALABARI TRIBES AND KALABARI ETHNIC GROUPS ALONE?
Kalabari World -
From left direction across the present day Bayelsa State and right direction to the present day Calabar City was null and void until arrival of the allochthonous and autochthonous" “(about Seven (7) beings descended to the ancient Ke Land (present Ke Community in Kalabari Nation, located at the present day Degema Local Government Area, Rivers State, South South, Eastern Niger Delta, Nigeria).........................
Beings Exist in Ke BC (uncommon era)) and they did not ascend from the old Agadagba-Bou, as some historians frames up their stories. And purported stories that says Ke began at 500-800 AD are all lies, because no kind of archaeological samples can prove the case of Ke begining on earth, because her origins were not just migrants as others .......
The truth is that no living human can tell where the descendants of Ke came from because no one recorded such as a fact from the likes of Keni-Ala(Keni Opu Ala), Keni-Opusuo, Opu-Ogbu, Ombiyi, Opu-Jaja, Ogbokiya, and Opupiri (Opusiri), that was assumed seven founding ancestors descendants from sky.
Centuries ago, it was from Ke that the Adumu Spiritual Initiation Society/Cult/Lodge commonly referred to as the water people or the mask spirit people (Owu-ame/Owu amapu) derived from. Inwhich all other neighboring lands or tribes in Niger Delta adopted as culture (tradition).........................
Around 1932 about sixty one (61) successors had ruled Ke Lands as Amayanabo starting from Omonie (Omoniye), narrated by Ke Historian Madam Kala-Dokku and published by Talbot 1932.....
To cut short story, Ke can not be people that came from Ijo, or Ejo which are variations of Ujo or Ojo (i.e Ancestors of Kala-Okun, Ujo-Gbaran(Gbaran) - Gbaramatu, Arogbo, Tuomo, Kabo, etc), and Ke can not be addressed as people that came from the Niger-Congo Tribes, Kumoni-Oru, Otu-Ife (Ile-Ife)/Benin/Ijaw(Ejo or Ijo or Ujo alias Idekoseroake, etc,) even though some migrants came to join the Ke People from other parts of Ancient Africa e.i the Seven(7) ancient wards of Kalabari, Ilelema, Angulama, Kula, Bille, Tombia, Oproama, Ogoloma, Bonny, etc, BC-AD..
The fair fact is that Ke should instead be seen as a landlord to all Kalabari's, Ibani, Obgolo's(Andoni), Okirikan's, Nkoro & Opopo, including the Rivers State Igbo's, Nembe, Ogbia, Epie, Etc.....................
If anyone sincerely wants to narrate or tell the myth of the origin or root of Kalabari People Ke should be considered as one of the geneuin origin of Kalabari's that is still locatable ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Because even when the first Seven(7) wards that formed Kalabari migrated to the Elem-Kalabari Ke has been in existence for more than ten(10) centuries and most of the Kalabari Clans were made up of Ke Offsprings just as it is to other Kingdoms like Kalaibiama in present day Bonny, Ekeni in Bayelsa State, Abame in Okirika, Okpoma in Nembe, etc, so therefore it is too wrong, bad and baseless to frame the entire Kalabari People as people that rooted (came from) Ijaw/Ijo/Ujo/Ejo or Ojo for any reason, because that is a fatal lie by some desperate or egotistical persons whom tries to paint all the Riverine Tribes or Fishermen tribes to a root..
Also, most persons confuses the term Oru (Horu or Oru's) as Ethnic Group, while some complicates Oru(Horu) as the source of Kumoni-Oru which some baseless historians stated as who settled the Niger Delta with the most ancient inhabitants known as the Oru (TOBU OTU) who gave birth to the Ijos; meanwhile the curious name “ORU” was applied by the early British explorers to Brass from the Nun enteranc to Taylor Creek, Dr Baikie said of them 1854.
Just as some small minded historians classifies Ijaw as Ethnicity in Nigeria due to very few adopted, anglisized or corrupted similarities in some tribes even when the said similarities does not match or conclude beyond common imaginations.............
Now,
Same goes to individual clans/towns/communities that formed the previous and the present Kalabari World.....................................
The overall and first capital(headquarter) of the Ancient Kalabari Nation was a virgin island which originally began the popularly known Kalabari race on planet earth.
The name Torusirama-piri or Kalabari-kiri was given to the island after the first founders had settled there for centuries........
Along the way others joined to make up the first Seven (7) - first fourteen (14) Ward's at this very island that latter became the Torusrama-piri (Kalabari Polo, Kalabari Kiri or Kalabari-Ama)..........
The first Seven(7) Wards were.. (1). Amabin-Ame, (2). Kuro-Ame, (3). Ende-Ame, (4). Igodo-Ame, (5). Akiala-Ame, (6). Ituru-Ame, (7) Buko-Ame. -Lila-Ame.....
These names given to the Seven (7) founding wards are classification to identify each group.
The reality is that, these groups all migrated from different parts of the Ancient Africa World, such as Binin Areas, Ile-fe, Ke, Akwa Akpa(Calabar), Igbo, Cameron, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Niger-Congo, Serialeon, Tribes that speaks the Niger-Congo Language such as Ijoid(Atlantic), and Defaka(Afakani) an endangered language. And Kalabari Lands is not just about the First Seven (7) Wards that settled at the New Calabar River because the likes of Ke, Ilelema, Angulama, Kula, Bille, Abise, Soku, Tombia, Obonoma, Idama, Oguruawo-Bakana, Krakrama, Ifoko, Bukuma, Udekeama(Dekema), Oproama, Sangama, Abalama, Ido, Tema, Sema, Obu-Ama(Harry's Town) and others joined to makeup the independent Kalabari Nation counting from the King Amakiri(Amachree) era as the Great King of All Kings.
The language of the present Ibani, Okirika and some parts of Nembe was adopted from the Kalabari Language just as the Kalabari Language became the basics of the Berbice, a Dutch Creole Spoken in Eastern Guyana.
Kalabari Language words have been proposed for some modern technical terms. And so what is now being paraded as the linguistics of the said Ijaw Ethnic Group is a Kalabari Language and never an Ijaw language.
The Kalabari Language is a tongue of many forms from the ancient days, which undergone unidentifiable mix-ups, due to the need of establishing a unique world known a Kalabari Nation...
The Kalabari Traditional attires, Songs, and dance steps, etc, has been adopted by too many tribes of Nigeria especially the Niger Deltans, and as of today it is very hard to claim Kalabari Tradition as a cultural practice which is originally native to the Kalabari Tribes, but only God and man knows that it was very few tribes in Nigeria that had traditional attire( exampling tradition) before Nigeria was amalgamated, and almost all the tribes in Nigeria did not interact directly with the whiteman (Portuguese especially) to get reach of beautiful dress codes such as original beads(Corals-Kilali,Ikuta,Illa,Stords), Cloths(Dawn, Wokor, Daminimbana, Frokor, Etibor, India-Bite, Lokor, Amasiri, Epe, Injiri, etc, ), walking sticks(Royal Staffs), Swords, etc.
Most of the credits forged as or transfered to the said Ijaw were originally Kalabari's affairs.
The present areas known as Kalabari is not Ijaw Land but Kalabari Lands, and only liars frames up Our world as Ijaw Lands or Ijaw Sub Groups in Eastern Niger Delta, meanwhile Kalabari is Independent Nation for Centuries now.
Finally, none should mislead anyone by saying the term Kalabari was a name of a ancestor so therefore Kalabari's came from one place called Ijaw/Ijo/Ejo/Ujo/Ojo when there is no place on Earth agreed as the genuine Ijaw Kingdom or origin on earth, apart from some myth to some villages or ancestors who they now classified as persons or villages that originated from another ancestor named Ijo/Ejo or Ujo/Ojo who was a child to Adumu some says Oduduwa is the Adumu.
This is brief but genuine history of who Kalabari's are.
To stretching and analyze this history it can go as far as fifteen (15) times longer than this, but this is a brief yet better guidance to who we truly are.
