About the Isoko People
The Isoko region is located in Delta State and Bayelsa State, Nigeria, and is home to an ethnolinguistic group known as the Isoko people. They originate from southern Nigeria, close to the Niger delta in the west. The 36 states that make up the Federal Republic of Nigeria include Delta State and Bayelsa State.
The Isoko language, which belongs to the Kwa branch of the Niger-Congo family, shares a great deal of similarities with the Urhobo, Epie-Atissa, and Engenni languages linguistically. Many people agree with James W. Welch’s claim that the Isoko language is a dialect of the Urhobo language.
The Urhobo, Ijaw, and Anioma cultures in the Niger Delta are all linked to the Isoko civilization.
Since the Urhobo and Isoko cultural groups are connected in terms of language and culture, the invaders incorrectly referred to the Urhobo and Isoko as the Sobo.
Both tribes vehemently rejected this name.
Nineteen clans make up the Isoko ethnic group, including Uzere, Ozoro, Erowha, Owhe, Iyede, Okpe, Emede, Igbide, Emevor, Ofagbe, Ellu, Oyede, Umeh, Irri, Aviara, Olomoro, Enwhe, Okpolo, and Oleh.
