ORIGIN

Ika people are found in Delta and Edo states of southern Nigeria. They speak the Ika dialect but share linguistic borders in the west with the Edos, in the north with the Ishans, in the East with the Enuanis and in the south with the Ukwuanis. Ika people occupy the North-West of Delta State but some of their communities like Igbanke, Inyelen and Ekpon extend into Edo State.

Ika communities mostly comprise the following: Agbor, Owa, Umunede, Mbiri, Abavo, Otolokpo, Igbodo, Ute-Okpu, Ute-Ogbeje, Idumuesah, Akumazi., Ekpon (EdoState), Igbanke (Edo State), Inyelen Edo State). Other Ika communities found in Edo State are Owanikeke, Owa-Riuzo Idu and Igbogili.

Ika people do not trace their ancestry to common origin. The various clans that make up Ika have heterogeneous origins. Similarities of the language with Igbo suggests they might be Igbo connections but oral accounts and cultures as well as ancient Ika name suggests bini origin. Ika historians have argued that changes in language can occur due to large migrations or trade or due to other factors.

LOCATION

Politically, the Ika speaking people are mainly found in two local government areas, Ika North East and Ika South local government areas, both created in 1991 from a single Ika Local Government Area, in Delta State. Ika South and Ika North East local government areas, occupy a land area of 117.45 square kilometres (Delta State Government website, 1999) with a total population of about 240,000 people. The exact population of speakers of the Ika language or those with Ika as mother tongue is not known since this information was not included in the 1991 census result (1991 census). Ika people do not have any shared physical characteristics distinguishing it from other ethnic or language groups in Delta State.
