Igbo people are canables. Canables eat other humans. This religious tribe has been baned because they practice canableizem. -- That is completely incorrect. The Igbo people are not a "religious tribe," they are simply an ethnicity, and they have not been, nor are they currently, "canables[sic]"…. Igbo people eat primarily yams (not sweet potatoes, but the large tubers that are white on the inside and rough and brown on the outside). Another primary staple are the varieties of vegetables, particularly leafy greens, which are often incorporated into dense and sometimes peppery soups. Igbos also eat rice, like pretty much the rest of Africa, as well as semolina/farina. Last but not least, meat is usually chicken, beef, goat, fish, and pork (although the last is not as popular as the others). -- What the first person said is just wrong. i am a Nigerian so i no what we eat igbo people do eat yams but another main food we eat is casava and we make it into gari or apu we also eat rice (MORE)
As an Igbo, I feel so sad for the so called little Ikwere kingdom. Some of their leaders are messing their minds up as far as Identity is concerned. The Civil war did not make the situation better as some (Not all) the Ikwere people went into this biblical Peter scenario. By the way, the Igbos in An…ambra, Imo, Abia, Ebonyi,Enugu, Delta have better objectives and things to pursue than comming after a group of some lost souls who think that changing their original names will give them another identity. No, it makes them look very funny and ridiculous and that,s why the Ijaws and Kalabari,s can,t stand them and succed in putting elements of maginalization to their causes. We have to understand that the abandoned property issue of the 1970,s were mainly superheaded by the Ikweres out of jealousy and hatred of the mainland Igbos who earned those properties by hardwork. If they cite grieviences against the Igbos for the role they played on the seizure their properties, which group in the world do not have problems. The difference is that they make up , unite and move on. Instead the Ikwerre people decided to teach the Igbos a lesson. Where has it left issues and relationships today" ? No where". The Igbos bounced back immedietly after the civil war with the 2 pounds that Awolowo and the Hausas gave them with seizure of all their properties including those in Porthacourt with the help of the IKWERRE people . My take is this to the Ikwerres" It is up to you to make amends and come back to the greater Igbo nation. If they decide to disappear from the radar, it is their perogative but there unborn generations will suffer the consequences and not the current selfish people with no long term vision parading themselves as leaders.

The Igbos of Eastern Nigeria are known for their industry. entrepreneurship. and intelligence. Their philosophy of Igba-nbor makes every Igbo male strive for excellence in all aspects of life to which they are forced to seek for a living in. In addition, few Igbos would like to be the person wh…o made so much money and failed to help others. This derived from the ancient system of share-cropping whereby a farmer gives seed-yams to a young up-coming fellow, who, through his industry proves his mettle by paying back the seedlings during the next cropping season, and yet, have enough to start off his own farm. With this system, wealth is spread out fairly evenly in the communities where Igbos abound. In this modern times, the Igbos have adapted this wealth-sharing life to business. A businessman formally takes on a serving boy (not a servant) to help him in his business, and at the same time, to0 learn the rules of the game. After an agreed time passes, the 'master '. is expected to 'settle ' his 'boy' with substantial amount of money to help him start off his own business. This form of apprenticeship serves as a sort of business school which offers an assured employment for the hardworking young person. His success is often judged by his building a house, marrying, and helping others behind him, Thus, it continues. Wish I could write more now, but for some pressing 'business'. Austen Ezeifedi (MORE)
