Various Tribes in Nigeria

The threat issued by MC Oluomo, a stalwart of the ruling party party, All Progressive Congress (APC) and the president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu  to the Igbos days prior to the 2023 gubernatorial election seems to have incited a bit of a tribal war between the Igbos, Southeasterners and the Yorubas, those who predominantly occupy the Southwestern part of Nigeria.

Tribal war or intertribal warfare can simply be described as the feud, battle or altercation between two or more major ethnic clan in a nation or a country.

An Igbo woman married to a Yoruba man has shown how much the “attack on Igbos” in Lagos is affecting her marriage.
