The igbo tribe has 5 states in Nigeria

(They probably made up at least 95% in these states).

Igbos are also found in Delta (approx 30%)
RIvers state (70%).

Most Igbos in Delta and Rivers are not identify as Igbo but they have blood lineage.

There are a reasonable amount of Igbos in Akwa Ibom (Ndoki),
Cross River (close to the border with Ebonyi state)
Edo (Igbanke – an Ika group).

Other tribes consider Igbo tribe For there wandering nature. The Igbo sons and daughters are not comfortable with staying at a place without getting results that will improve his or her life style.

They travel and to explore and to see and to conquer and to feel superior.

Igbo are currently in all state in Nigeria, the presence of the Igbo’s in most states are completely threatened especially the Northern states, reasons Of the difference in religion.

Typically all countries in World has Igbos domiciled in it. Any major development in any part of Nigeria points to the presence of an Igbo man.

Igbos are considered as the nation builders and can also build anything from the scratch. That is the reason if you spot a city or nation an Igbo man does not inhabit, its because it is not inhabitable. There cant be progress there.

Igbos are most talented tribe adorned with skills of lucrative import and great minds, apart from irresponsible crime-minded ones. That is my personal opinion though based on veritable facts.
