They are our neighbours; a close one for that matter and as such, we share a lot in common and live within each other’s countries.

The Igbos, popularly called the Ibos have, for years, lived cordially with Ghanaians.

They are an ethnic group in Nigeria with 5 key states; Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu, and Imo States, with other Ibo-speaking communities in River and the Delta States in Nigeria.

Having lived in Ghana for years, they have established a kingdom, with a King and other leaders in charge of their affairs in the country.

Headed by Dr. Eze Chukwudi Iheneku for 10 years, the Igbo community in Ghana has a unique story.

This is what the People and Places team sought to explore when they sat with the Igbo Ndigbo, Ghana in this edition of the show.
