Some facts about Igbo Land and the Igbos.

The Igbo people natively known as Ṇ́dị́ Ìgbò are an ethnic group from the southern parts of Nigeria.

They are one of the largest ethnic group in Africa, and their populations are also found in Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon, Gabon as well as outside Africa.

In present-day Nigeria, they make up Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo states, as well as, parts of Delta, Akwa Ibom and Rivers states.

They are predominately Christians and others practice traditional beliefs known as Odinani.

Today, Igbo people tend to engage in monogamous marriages according to Christian values, with a small minority with indigeous beliefs still engaged in polygamous marriage customs.

In rural Nigeria, they work mostly as traders, craftsmen and farmers.

Their most important crop is the yam, and every year, they celebrate New Yam festival.
