Ikot Abasi’s Ibibio people have a rich cultural past. It’s Ibibio.

Ikot Abasi has five clans: Ikpa Edemaya, Ikpa Ibekwe, Ikpa Nnung Assang, Ukpum Ette, and Ukpum Okon.

Due to its location in a breach in the mangrove swamp and rain forest of the eastern Niger River delta, it was a 19th-century slave collection place. 1870: Jubo Juboha founds Opobo in Ikot Abasi. Former Igbo slave

Calabar Province’s Ikot Abasi for good cause. Ikot Abasi, formerly part of the famed Opobo Kingdom, was already on the world map before 1929, but the women’s uprising against Nigeria’s colonial rulers in 1929 pushed it into prominence. It was already known as the site of a famous boat yard, a British consulate, and part of the late King Jaja’s area.

Ikot Abasi was one of several towns in Calabar and Owerri provinces whose women heroically opposed British abuses in pre-independent Nigeria.

Opobo was part of South Eastern State until the 1970s (later re-Christened Cross River). Changing boundaries separated Opobo. Opobo Island joined Rivers State but Cross River’s mainland remained. Ikot Abasi is presently in Akwa Ibom State. Ancient Ikot Abasi was a tiny village, but the name has become generic. Ikot Abasi has five clans: Ikpa-Ibekwe, Ukpum-Ette, Ukpum-Okon, Edem-Aya, and Ikpa Nnung Asang. Ukpum okon clan houses Ikot Abasi’s palace.

Consulate Road in Ikot Abasi is named after the British Consulate that was located there. At the roundabout leading to Consulate Road is a monument honouring Justice Udo Udo Udoma, the first Nigerian to get a PhD in law. The late hero also served as chairman of Uganda’s Constituent Assembly (1977–79), chief justice (1963–69), and governor-general (1963). After passing Beracah Chambers, a legal office, on Consulate Road, a traveller may discover a few good restaurants. Local Government Secretariat is further down.

Several bungalows overlook the river separating Ikot Abasi from Opobo Island. One or two of these blocks are the council’s offices. Justice Udoma unveiled a memorial beside the chiefs’ secretariat on December 16, 1985. The sculpture’s location is supposed to represent where three heroic ladies were killed in 1929.

Tourist attractions abound. Her Uta Ewa beachfront, Berger Jetty along Uta Ewa stream, and shoreline are tourist attractions.

Forest reserves provide timber and wildlife, and commercial fishing is popular. A sand bar limits the port’s access from the Gulf of Guinea.
