That would be you and your ancestors, because my own ancestors had a great civilization and even have an empire, you can Google Oyo Empire, you guys should stop talking down on your heritage and culture.

That may be the reason human rituals are still obtainable in your empire.

The OP is a serial liar" There's no way this woman can be the one Mary Slessor saved, unless this woman he met is over 150 years old. Here is a link to Slessor's life, and it doesn't jell with the claims of the OP - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Slessor

So you are angry they stopped the killing of twins? undecided

Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Their coming had some advantages one of which is stopping the killing of twins but I wont say that because of that their coming was all good.

It is not Mary Slessor but another Mary who happened to be an astronaut and scientist of Scotland.
You may still confirm this Sir or prove me wrong by showing it to us .
Thanks

Mary slessor did a great work in Nigeria. On a 10 pounds note in Scotland, is the picture of mary slessor and her missionary route in Nigeria on the other side of the currency, you can see arochukwu and other places where she worked clearly written on that currency

Don't muddle up history.
Other parts of Nigeria and black race had been celebrating multiple births.
Have you heard igbos, Yorubas, igala etc were killing twins before Ms Slessor came?
It was limited to the people of Calabar extraction.
I wonder how you misrepresent your people to the outsiders just for lack of reading or simple comprehension

I met the only surviving twin saved by Mary Slessor over 100 years ago (Video)


Mary Slessor was a missionary posted from Scotland to Calabar in Nigeria by the Presbyterian Church in 1876. She also lived in Arochukwu Nigeria during her missionary work. Mary Slessor stopped the killing of twins in Nigeria and she achieved this by saving a lot of twins either left in the bush to die or from their homes where their mothers hid them.
One of the twin babies Mary Slessor saved by herself before the killing of twins was finally abolished is Mgbeafor Okereke. I met her in her home in Amasu, Arochukwu, where I had an amazing interaction with her.

Yoruba tribe don't kill twin, it's not every tribe in Nigeria that was killing their twins.

My friend you know too little about world history generally, do you know what were happening in Victorian era Britain? let me just give you a tip of the Iceberg, child labour was very rampant, you had little children from poor homes already working at the age of 4years, children were tried in courts for petty crimes such as theft and sentenced to long term imprisonment sometimes were even executed. Your notion and belief is more of a mental slavery than knowing facts.

I agree that the white man has successfully brainwashed him, but I would like to know whom has brainwashed you too. I hope it is not what I'm thinking; The black man has brainwashed and brain rinsed you!

Re: Nairalander Meets Only Surviving Twin Saved By Mary Slessor Over 100 Years Ago by nicewoody6: 10:56pm On Mar 30
History was doctored. The victory wasn't hers. Not all the Tribes' people approved of the killings. Even before the coming of Slessor, some saved their twins in a way so legendary. They dared the gods and damned the consequences.

Remember; deviation is an integral part of human behaviour. That alone is a solid proof that some families did save their twins.

Go to okadabooksdotcom and search for stolen victory (Mary Slessor Vs The Calabar Tribes). Authored by Ugeh Anthony.

It is an interesting read. Prepare to unlearn the history you know.
