Rivers State Bonny Island, Rivers, Nigeria

The Ibani tribe of the Ijaw people lives in southern Rivers State, Nigeria. Bonny Town is the tribal seat. The tribe has a strong central authority structure and a long-established royal lineage. Bonny’s development was also shaped by the tribe’s close interaction with European traders. The Kingdom of Bonny was a major trading center from the 16th century onwards. The cult of the iguana  also features strongly in Bonny cultural traditions. Historically, Bonny frequently engaged in wars against its nearby rivals, such as Elem Kalabari and Andoni.

Other important Bonny settlements include: Finima, Abalama, and Oloma.
