Brief History Of Igbo People

Igboland is located in southeastern Nigeria, with a total land area of about 15,800 square miles (about 41,000 square kilometers).
The Igbo country has four distinct areas.
The low-lying deltas and riberbank areas are heavily inundated during the rainy season, and are very fertile.

The first contact between Igboland and Europe came in the mid-fifteenth century with the arrival of the Portuguese.
From 1434-1807 the Niger coast acted as a contact point between African and European traders, beginning with the Portuguese, then the Dutch and finally the English.
At this stage there was an emphasis on trade rather than empire building, in this case the trade consisting primarily of Igbo slaves.
With the abolition of the slave trade in 1807 came a new trading era, concentrating on industry (palm products, timber, elephant tusks and spices).

At this point the British began to combine aggressive trading with aggressive imperialism.
They saw the hinterland as productive, and refused to be confined to the coast.
In 1900 the area that had been administered by the British Niger Company became the Protectorate on Southern Nigeria, also incorporating what had been called the Niger Coast Protectorate.
Control of this area then passed from the British Foreign Office to the Colonial Office.

Long before it had officially been conquered, Igboland was being treated as a British colony.
Between 1900 and 1914 (when Northern and Southern Nigeria were amalgamated) there had been twenty-one British military expeditions into Igboland.
In 1928 for the first time in their history, Igbo men were made to pay tax – they were a subject people.

This attempt to take over political control of Igboland met with resistance and cultural protest in the early decades of the twentieth century.
A nativistic religious movement sprang up (the ekumeku) which inspired short-lived but feverish messianic enthusiasm.
The rumours that the Igbo women were being assessed for taxation, sparked off the 1929 Aba Riots, a massive revolt of women never encountered before in Igbo history.
However, the engine of imperialism could not be stopped, and once it had begun, Igbo culture would never be the same again.

The origins of the Igbo people has been the subject of much speculation, and it is only in the last fifty years that any real work has been carried out in this subject: like any group of people, they are anxious to discover their origin and reconstruct how they came to be how they are, their experiences under colonialsim and since Nigeria’s Independence have emphasized for them the reality of their group identity which they want to anchor into authenticated history.
(Afigbo, A.E.. ‘Prolegomena to the study of the culture history of the Igbo- Speaking Peoples of Nigeria’, Igbo Language and Culture, Oxford University Press, 1975. 28.).

The central belt is a rather high plain.
The Udi highlands are the only coal-mining area in West Africa.

A complicated system of high and low tones indicates differences in meaning and grammatical relationships.
There are a wide range of dialects.

    Brief History Of Yoruba People

    The Yorubas originated from Ile-Ife, arose and became quite popular by their trading with the Portuguese, which gave them a large supply of guns.

    However, they were unable to push back the Fulani who invaded them and pushed much of the Yoruba to the south.
    In the late 1800s, the Yorubas formed a treaty with the Fulani and in 1901 they were colonised by the British.
    Because of their enmity with the Fulani who are the great Islamic evangelists, most of the Yoruba people do not hold to Islam but instead worship many of the gods and spirits that the Yoruba hold to.

    According to tradition, Bayajidda, the mythical ancestor of the Hausa, migrated from Baghdad in the ninth or tenth century AD, After stopping at the kingdom of Bornu, he fled west and helped the king of Daura slay a dangerous snake.
    As a reward, he was given the Queen of Daura in marriage.
    Bayajidda's son, Bawo, founded the city of Biram.
    He had six sons who became the rulers of other Hausa city-states. Collectively, these are known as the Hausa bakwai (Hausa seven). Hausa folklore includes tatsunya— stories that usually have a moral. They involve animals, young men and maidens, and heroes and villains. Many include proverbs and riddles.

They pray five times each day, read the Koran (holy scriptures), fast during the month of Ramadan, give alms to the poor, and aspire to make the pilgrimage (hajj) to the Muslim holy land in Mecca. Islam affects nearly all aspects of Hausa behavior, including dress, art, housing, rites of passage, and laws. In the rural areas, there are communities of peoples who do not follow Islam.
    These people are called Maguzawa. They worship nature spirits known as bori or iskoki.

Eid (Muslim feast days) celebrate the end of Ramadan (month of fasting), follow a hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca), and celebrate the birthday of the prophet Muhammad. On Eid al-Adha, Muslims sacrifice an animal to reenact the time Abraham was willing to sacrifice his son to God. Families also slaughter an animal in their own homes. This may be a male sheep or cow. People then celebrate with their relatives and friends and give each other gifts.

    The Hausa people are concentrated mainly in northwestern Nigeria and in adjoining southern Niger.
    This area is mostly semiarid grassland or savanna, dotted with cities surrounded by farming communities.

    Brief History Of Nupe People

    Nupe Kingdom Nupe people are Nupoid-speaking people living near the confluence of the Niger rivers in North-central Nigeria.

    However, the traditions of Nupe were retained, hence the ruler of Nupe is the Etsu Nupe rather than being called Emir.
    The city of Bida fell to the colonialist British forces in 1897, the Etsu Abubakar was deposed and replaced by the more liable Muhammadu (Vandeleur 1898).

    The Nupe people refer to themselves as Nupenchizhi (Plural) and Nupenchi (Singular).

    Many Nupe were converted to Islam at the end of the eighteenth century by Mallam Dendo, a wandering preacher, and were incorporated into the Fulani Empire established by the Jihad led by Usman dan Fodio after 1806.

    Before the Fulani conquest in 1804 the Nupe Empire has reached the height of its fame, Later developments brought the kingdom under the domination of the dynasty of the empire of Gwandu – after the Fulani conquest of the entire Hausa States. After the seizure of authority from the natives (non- Fulani rulers) in 1810, Mallam Dendo (locally called Manko), a Fulani scholar from Bangana (a village near Birnin Kebbi) established himself as the new leader.
    He thus moved the then Nupe capital from Raba to Bida.
    On the world map, Bida lies between latitudes 6`20’ and 7`15’ North of the Equator and longitudes 5` 40’ and 6` 33’ East of the Greenwich Meridian.
    This geographically places the area almost in the centre of Nigeria.

    Bida is generally regarded as the capital of Nupe land in Nigeria. Its rapidly increasing population is put presently at more than 600,000 people.
    History has it that by 1352, the Nupe people were already settled in this location. Geographically this location shares boundaries with the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in the South East of Bida and Minna towards Suleja.

    Brief History Of Ebira People

    Ebira or Egbira people are an ethno- linguistic group of central Nigeria . Many Ebira people are from Kogi State, Kwara State, Nasarawa State and Edo State .

    Okene was said to be the administrative centre of the Ebira- speaking people in Kogi state before kogi was formed from Kwara, not far from the Niger-Benue confluence. Since the formation of the state, the Ebira Ta'o people are found in four local governments namely: Adavi , Ajaokuta , Okehi and Okene each with their administration headquarters. Ebira Koto are found in Kogi and KotonKarfe LGA Bassa LGA, Lokoja in Kogi and Abaji LGA in the Federal Capital Territory, and Nasarawa in Toto LGA. Another, the Eganyi are found in Ajaokuta LGA.

    migration of Ebira people to the present region is mostly surmised by oral history. However, most versions trace the migration from the Jukuns of the Kwararafa state, [6] north of the Benue River and in present-day Taraba State. One of the relics of their trace from Kwararafa is the Apete stool, their symbol of authority and identity as a group within the kingdom, brought along and kept in a place in Opete (deriving its name from the stool), in present-day Ajaokuta.

    The Apete is presently the title instrument of Ozumi of Okene. After migration from Kwararafa, they originally settled with the Igalas and both groups lived together for about 300 years. [6] A dispute between the two groups led to a parting of ways, and the Ebiras moved southwest of the River Niger to their ancestral home called Ebira Opete an area around Ajaokuta . [7] Other groups later moved south to found Okengwe, Uboro and Okehi. Historically, these Ebiras communities were autonomous units without a central king or recognized royal families but were managed by leaders of lineages in a type of gerontocracy.

    During the conquest of Hausaland by Jihadists , Ebiras came under a state of conflict with Fulani warlords to the north and west. In the middle of the nineteenth century, two major communities, Igu (Koton Large) as it was called by Hausa, it means strong land because they fought to conquest them but never succeed and Panda were not conquered. [8] Between 1865 and 1880, they battled, under the leadership of a warlord, Achigidi Okino, with jihadists called Ajinomoh who were from Bida and Ilorin . However, the Ebiras were not conquered by the Fulanis helped in part by security provided by their hilly environment.

    British interest in Ebira started with the location of a Royal Niger Company post in Lokoja. [9] In 1898, the British annexed Ilorin and Nupeland under the pretext of controlling free flow of trade, they set up a military post in Kabba west of Ebiraland and the Ebiras soon were a target for annexation.

    Brief History Of Ijaw People

    Ijo, also called Ijaw, people of the forests of the Niger River delta in Nigeria comprising a large number of formerly autonomous groups. They speak languages of the Ijoid branch of the Niger-Congo language family.

    West of the main Niger outlets each group occupies a cluster of villages linked by loose ties of cooperation, mainly against outsiders. Its members claim descent from a common ancestor. At group and village levels government is by assemblies of elders, often presided over by priests.

    The economy is based on fishing, palm oil collecting, and floodland agriculture, formerly, when the economy was based primarily on fishing, each group claimed a distinctive culture and political autonomy, after contact with European merchants about 1500, however, the communities of Bonny, Calabar, and Nemke began trading first in slaves and then in palm oil.

    Wealthy traders became very powerful and governed in council with a hereditary king. Each trader purchased numerous slaves for incorporation into his own section of the community; if the trader had no suitable heir, an able slave succeeded him.

    Competition with other groups over hinterland markets and an emphasis on cultural separation rather than on links of common descent meant that ability was valued more than pedigree, permitting the emergence of such slave-born (i.e., non-Ijo) leaders as George of Calabar and Chief Jaja of Opobo.
