Asaba-Onitsha ferry Crossing (1959)

Ever wondered how people traveled across the River Niger before the Niger Bridge was constructed? That is when crossing from Onitsha to Asaba and vice versa. Then, the Asaba-Onitsha ferry transport was used to transport people across the River Niger. This was prior to the construction of the famous Onitsha Bridge in 1965. The Niger Bridge more popularly referred to as the Onitsha Bridge, was constructed between 1964 and 1965, and it was commissioned in December 1965. The Bridge links the South-Western and the South-Southern region of the country to the South-East. The Bridge has its two ends to both Igbo cities Asaba and Onitsha.

The Ikwerre (natively known as Iwhuruọha are one of the Igbo Subgroups in Rivers State. Traditional history has classified Ikwerre into seven groups called "Ikwerre Essa". They are Elele, Isiokpo, Rumuji, Emohua, Choba, Aluu Igwuruta and Obio group. This division was recognized by Forde and Jones; (1950) in their ethnographic study of the Igbo speaking peoples of South Eastern Nigeria Some Ikwerre people migrated from Ika a subgroup of Igbos in Delta State and Edo state while some migrated from Ngwa, Arochukwu and Ohaji/Egbema. The Aro first came into the Ikwerre area through Ozuzu-Etche, settling at Isiokpo, Igwuruta, Omagwa, etc. As expected of pre-literate African societies, the history of the people is wrapped in myth and mystery. This presupposes that historians may have to resort to oral tradition for the justifiable/credible reconstruction of the people's history. From the post-colonial dispensation to the present, professional historians and other
