The Maigari of Lokoja is subject to the Etsu Nupe Bida. He is more of a Nupe king in a Nupe speaking settlement than he is Hausa.

But na waa o.
Why did the Nupes allow Hausa customs and mannerisms to erase so much of their uniqueness like this?
I always knew the Hausa talk in Lokoja was all Bullshit anyways.

I agree with your assertion. But the question is why are Yoruba sub-groups always added to the Yoruba nation, but that of the Nupes is being deliberately relegated, from the colonial daysdays to this present day?

Who is separating them?

look at the Bassa Nges for example, their territory is not contiguous with the rest of nupeland.
the Kakandas too are quite far off from kin Nupe and the only access they have is a river link to Baro from where there they actually migrated downstream, nothing more.

All the other groups are known to outsiders as Nupe only. Only Nupe people actually even know that they usually separate themselves.
Certainly not the fault of the outsiders.

The Nupe of Nigeria inhabit the "low basin formed by the valleys of the Niger and Kaduna rivers, between 9ºE 30' & 8ºE 30' north." They occupy an estimated total land area of about 7,000 square miles. With reference to a modern map of Nigeria, Nadel delineates Nupe's southern boundary to be a line drawn from Leaba, on the Niger, eastward to Kataeregi marks the northern boundary of Nupe land, another line drawn eastward from Shari (or Tsaragi) to Abugi and on to the Niger south of Baro ....

The Niger, flowing almost straight north-south between Leaba and Jebba divides Nupe country from Yoruba in the west; the slowly rising country, east of Lapai and Gidi, sloping upward towards the hills of Gbari country, forms the eastern boundary of Nupe.

That shows you that the Yoruba country on the East side of the Upper Ogun forest reserve axis actually terminates at the banks of the Niger

Even the name "Yoruba" is a British invention to join various ethnicities with similar cultures and linguistic similarities together. The same applies to the other "Super-tribes".

I can say the same about Nupe that is not even a "super tribe" and conclude that the Dibos are not nupe, the Kakandas are not Nupe, Kupas aren't Nupe as well, Gupa, etc. Because all these groups have their different peculiarities.
So you see.

They have done so when they proposed for Anioma state with Onitsha as the head quarters which would have expanded Igbo geopolitical tentacles seamlessly into Niger-delta but Delta state was created instead!

Na lie.
Igbos sabotaged Anioma state creation and decided to go for the creation of Ebonyi state in the SE instead.lol
You can't ie to us. grin

Besides an Anioma state was not supposed to be in the Political south but rather, added to the SE as an additional state.

We are still running in circles here.

Jebba was originally founded as a Nupe settlement and had remained so right unto Colonial times. But in the immediate post-Colonial era, after the White man singularly created a Yoruba race out of thin air... (Abdullahi and Ndace, nd).

Excerpt from "the Makers of Nupe"

Yoruba race was not created out of "Thin air"
There were strong sociolinguistic factors and ethno cultural elements that determined what clans were Yoruba and what clans were not.
Okene to Kabba or Akoko land inOndo state is less than 20 minutes on keke, yet the colonial masters did not label the Egbiras as Yoruba.

The LGA is an oversight from my part. Yoruba is not the only language the speak. The perspective I'm coming from is that Jebba is traditionally a Nupe town. Obviously, the world is becoming very diverse, and Jebba is not ab exception.

"All cultural traits of the Igbomina people portray them as Yoruba. Although under colonial rule they were partitioned to the North and South, they still remained either in the Yoruba provinces of the South or in the Southern part of the Northern provinces–contiguous to
the Yoruba provinces.

Today, they occupy Irepodun, Ifelodun and Isin Local Government Areas of Kwara State. There are few Igbomina towns in what is now Osun State. These include Ila-Orangun Oke-Ila and Ora Igbomina. Jebba- South is also Igbomina, although the population is now mixed. Towns like Iponrin, Lanwa, Ayetoro–Ile and Agbeyangi that are now in Ilorin East Local Government Area of Kwara State are all Igbomina
www.academicjournals.org/article/article1381857172_Ibiloye.pdf

Anyways, in a plebiscite , shebi it is the native people that will vote abi?
No need to argue over something that the Jebbans themselves will decide. smiley

You know Yorubas are not known for "land grabbing" tendencies. We call Jebba the last Yoruba town before Oke Oya (Northern) for a reason, the claim is not baseless brother.

Jebba is Moro LGA so?
A town being in an LGA dominated by an ethnic group does not strip it from its identity. Take for instance, Tsaragi is in Edu LGA and Tsare (share) is in Ifedlodun LGA but the two town are divided by a very narrow road.

AUTHORITATIVELY??
Are you an historian in any field(Anthropology, Sociology, African studies etc) or have you published books that takes talks about these two towns. Or you've only lived there for some years or at worst a decade and you depend on heresay from just abt source?

Sir, please respond accordingly thanks.

Kwaran Jebba is NOT in Moro, it is in Ifelodun.
Yoruba is what they speak, Nupe migrants there from across the Niger and from Edu speak Nupe or both.
The Pako-Jebba (Kwara side) are Yorubas and speak Yoruba. Neither do they have an Etsu like all the other traditional Nupe settleents around.

Only Jebba Niger (Mokwa L.G.A ) have a community head that is an Etsu Yankpa in person of Tetengi Mohammed.
The Kwaran Jebba have their Oba in like manner.

Since you don't want to act civil without name calling and other disgusting act, let me school you a bit (even if you are my grand pa's age)!

Jebba is a Nupe town, and the name Jebba is an anglicized Nupe word which originally is "Ejeba" which means; a place where river/stream flows.

Check this out:

"Jebba, town, Kwara state, western Nigeria. It lies on the south bank and at the natural head of navigation of the Niger River, 550 miles (885 km) from the sea. It is populated by the predominantly Muslim Nupe people, whose kingdom, refounded by Tsoede, flourished in the region in the early 16th century. From this period date the noted Jebba bronzes. The island of Jebba in the Niger River still retains a traditional Nupe settlement."(Britannica, 2017).

The "Oba" is an invention which is a century old or less, and it is closely linked with the anti-Nupe colonial master Frederick Lugard and the capitalist Goldie of the Royal Niger Company. Though, other machinations are involved.

Before I forget, predominant language in Jebba is the NUPE language.

Sir, don't think we are all high school kids here or tribal warlords here. Peace.

I know there are two Jebbas, Jebba North is in Niger, and Jebba is in Kwara.
The Kwara Jebba in Ifelodun local government, Yoruba is what I know to be the predominant language there. The Jebba in Kwara could have verry well been added by the Kwara state Government or the FG to EDU local government, lafiagi- with which they share a border at Bacita and Shonga, but it remains in Ifelodun for linguistic and cultural reasons, which is that they are not Nupes.
btw, How was Lugard Anti Nupe? care to explain that part?

See as he stylishly avoided talking about Urhobo/Isoko and went to pitch his tent with Ijaw instead.

The Urhobos/Isokos DO NOT trace their origin to Israel! That is an aberration! Urhobo doesn't derive from any Hebrew bullsh*t. Origin remains the same in all Urhobo polity: we are from Aka. Efiks/Ibibios DO NOT come from Israel or whatever. They have their origin in Southern Cameroun.

Secondly, the Efiks/Ibibios DON'T in any way look like Igbos. In fact, the Ijaws DON'T look like Igbos at all. How do the Igbos even look like to begin with?
GEJ looks like a typical Ijaw person, not Igbo. He even DRESSES the way Ijaws do. Have you ever seen him on red cap? Does he even wear anything that resembles Igbo?


James Ibori doesn't look Igbo too. He doesn't even talk like one to begin with. If you have ever seen an Urhobo speak, you will NEVER mistake him for Igbo to start with.

Presenting of Kolanuts is not unique to Igbo. It is present across AFRICAN ethnicities. Are they now all Igbos just because they present Kola?

There are NO SINGLE SOURCES (I dare you to provide any) that has ever assumed, implied or inferred that any Southern Minority group is Igbo! NONE whatsoever. So don't pull that stunt here unless you are willing to provide sources. In fact, a quarter of Southern Nigeria was under the BENIN EMPIRE ruled by the Oba of Benin and the people were never referred to as Bini people (which would have made more sense).

So your attempt to balkanise ethnicities into a phantom categorisation in order to suit your reductionist stupidity will NOT work here. Even core, die-hard Igbocentric people have NEVER EVER dared to call even the Efiks/Ibibios as Igbos, talk less of the Urhobos, Ijaws, Edos, Ogonis and Ekois.

There are some ideas that shouldn't be let out from the tribalistic part of your brain where "bright ideas" about other people's ethnicities come from. If you should say things like this in public, you may end up being a pariah (assuming the audience are not minorities, else you may be lynched).


The White colonialists started this rubbish when they called the Ibibio-Annangs "Kwa-Ibos" or sorta like "Quasi Igbo", a very derogatory term for a people with their own culture and history.

Thank God, these days the Ibibios are putting their history of past existence under Igbo hegemony very quickly behind them and forging ahead with their truly found independence as Aka Ibomites. The Efika are doing the same.

You think it is by mistake these Igbos are actively seeking to use "style -style" to bring back the old eastern region and other minorities under the political guise of "Biafra", so that they can culturally colonize them? lol
I pity any minority that falls into that trap.

There are NO Igbo villages in Kogi. Several Igalas have come out to deny it. I am member of their mega forums on Facebook. They say the only things Igbo MAY have in southern Igalaland are farming settlements built by migrant farmers, and that is also the case in Benue.
That is why Agila and still fighting Mgbo in Ebonyi over land and farming resources with till date.

Tell me why odeke, one of the closest Ibaji communities to Anambra had to fight you Igbo people so violently over boundary dispute if Igboland spills into Kogi?
Idoma communities along the Ebonyi and Enugu borders have good relations with their Igbo neighbors and as such also speak Igbo as a language, but using that avenue to claim that their villages are Igboland is just plain treacherous.... And dangerous.

Keep decieving yourselves.

So that has been the plan all along, u want anioma to remain in delta state because of infrastructure, you are so pathetic, they have applied for anioma state creation and that will be the 6th South East state... U can hug the nearest transformer.

Your nairaland ink is pure rubbish because in the context of boundary adjustment, you will need to mention the name of the towns and villages that need to be moved to the other side. Not just claiming some phantom farmlands and the labourer workers there as Igboland.
If you want parts of Benue to be moved to South East on the basis of them being Igbo, then that is between you and the Idoma/Igede people who claim all those lands as theirs.

To the second part of your statement, I could care less if Anioma join south East, but they will need to pay back the rest of Delta because every public structure in Asaba and environs was built with our money.

Olukumi villages of delta should be moved into Edo, while Igbanke village of Orhiomwon should be moved into Delta/Anioma.
Itsekiri should also be moved to Edo state, so that the Eddos can have a coast, and also share a state with their half brothers.

Oduduwa is an Edo prince and most of the relationship you people have with Edo is from Oduduwa and subsequent interactions. That doesn't mean they would want to be in a country with you. Edos want their country but anything short of that will be Biafra.

First there is no definite PROOF that Oduduwa was an Edo prince, that you are quoting the Benin side of the story doesn't make it true, since that is Benin's version.
2 - You as an Ika can enter Biafra with your Ika communities, but don't be acting like you are now a spokesperson for Benin people.

The fact that Benin People are vehemently against the breaking up of Nigeria because they know that if that happens, they will have to go with Oduduwa. When a referendum for independence occurs to chose between Oodua and Biafra, you honestly think Omorogbe from Benin, Balogun family from Ibillo, Bello from Auchi, and Adesua from Siluko will chose Biafra? grin

you're talking from a complete outsider/stranger perspective. Did you say Edo is not fond of the Niger Delta stuff? Then you don't know Edo at all. Edo would rather join Biafra than join Oduduwa. Though it might sound weird to you, but I'm telling you now

So you are the Insider that is going to carry Edo into Biafra? lol What is wrong with some of you people? How will Edo fit into the giant Jigsaw puzzle that is Biafra, with their history, almost Godly reverence for their Oba and all that stuff?

Do you know there are Yoruba communities in Ovia North East and Ovia South West? and some other places that speak a Yoruba-Edo mixture?
How about Akoko Edo, Owan, Auchi and all those places?
Edos fit in Oduduwa 80% and nowhere else, even the Edos know it, unless they just want to do small shakara for the Yorubas, like a girl playing hard to get.

In some places , they are indistinguishable from Yoruba. Egun communities in Nigeria call their rulers Oba, while those in Benin call their Kings Aholu.

So, you are now the Master of Egun tradition or what? The last part of your statement shows How IGNORANT you are, because Eguns believe in Mawu-Lisa just the same way Yorubas have their Oduduwa.
