The Ekumeku Moverment Spread the love EKUMEKU Movement (Aya Oyibo) was a war of resistance against the British encroachment into the affairs of (Ndi Enuani) Anioma people.

the movement was written off as a society of brigands engaged in nocturnal activities like robbery, seizures and other criminal acts which generated disorder and lawlessness.2 The first Ekumeku outbreaks were regarded as an illustration.

Ekumeku was an interesting, tenacious movement of resistance by Igbo people living on the western side of the Niger river. In several upheavals, the movement spanned over thirty years of hostility to British influence and rule.

Unlike most primary resistance movements in Africa, it was deft and innova-tive in its methods. The real first of the Ekumeku wars was between Ibusa and Royal Niger Company. Joseph Egwu in an article titled"Ekwumekwu Movement" published in Anioma Essence Vol. 1, No. 4, edition delivers a beautiful account of the Ibusa-Royal Niger Company War in which the Royal Niger Company forces commandeered by Major Festing decided to attack Ibusa.

This paper attempts, from oral and written sources, a study of the actual nature of the Ekumeku as a resistance movement, its organization, its responses to the challenges posed by European encroachment on the Asaba hinterland and its sources of strength which gave it its by: ofIse yin uprising ofEgba revolt ofEkumeku Movement uprising ofDancing Women Move ment ra mpage ofCalabar Ma Author: Peter Mbah.

Excerpt: The Nigerian Civil War, also known as the Nigerian-Biafran War, 6 July Januarywas a political conflict caused by the attempted secession of the southeastern provinces of Nigeria as the self-proclaimed Republic of Biafra.

The Ekumeku resistance movement existed in many towns in the Asaba hinterland and neighbouring Afemai, except Asaba itself. It attacked mission stations and colonial government institutions, and their military exploits extended to the neighbouring Ishan people, who collaborated with the Ekumeku warriors by sending reinforcements for the struggle.
