Base on this quoted tweet replies ,i decided to do a thread “NGWA CLAN and OUTLANDISH MYTH of CANNIBALISM”. Though the replies were unwise as i asked “What did you hear about Ngwa girls“ not what you heard about Ngwa land / History.

For those asking what /where is Ngwa.

Ngwa is the largest clan in Igbo land - South Eastern Nigeria situated in the tropical rainforest of southern igbo plain in present Abia State.
With 59.9% of the state population & 78.2% of the state natural resources.

*Habours Aba the commercial & heart of the state.

With a distinct dialect.... People make fun of it, saying it sounds funny.
Yes it does, i learnt how to speak my native dialect by mimicking & laughing at people when they speak it.

#ProudlyNgwa
I was neither born nor did i grow up in the Village but i’m a pro and it still beats my family members 😎

The truth hurts and yes Cannibalism was practised in many parts of Igboland including Ngwaland, not just 200yrs ago, but as late as during the civil war

#ProudlyNgwa
because of famine, and partly for vengeance on those who fought against them.

Today it has been consigned to the dustbin of history because of Christianity!

While my perception may or may not be accurate, it’s undeniable that Ngwas today are feared, mistrusted

#ProudlyNgwa
misunderstood and still basically demeaned in many ways by our igbo brethren.

Ngwas are the most hospitable/receptive & conciserate people on earth. We’re industrious, blessed with fertile lands for farming and strongly undefeatable.

#ProudlyNgwa
I’m proud of my heritage and never hesitated to declare my Ngwa identity.

We must confront our past with courage and wisdom, be proud of your roots but be the new model you want others to see in your people.
