Okpeh O. Okpeh and Yakubu A. Ochefu

An appraisal of the historical and cultural background of the Idoma is critical to our understanding of the people and society. In this paper, a broad based and circumspective examination of the evolution and development of Idoma ethnicity is attempted. Also discussed are the economic activities of the people and their socio-political organisation.
