The Igbo ethnic people of Nigeria are probably the most traveled of all Nigerian, so they can be found in all 36 states and the FCT in large numbers. They are reputed to have the second largest population after the natives of any state.

However, if you’re referring to states where Igbos are native to, then they include Abia, Anambra, Ebnyi, Enugu and Imo (They make up at least 95% in these states). They you also have them in Delta (approx 30%) and RIvers state (70%). Note that the Igbos in Delta and Rivers may not necessarily identify as Igbo but they’re part of the Igbo stock. You also have a reasonable amount of Igbos in Akwa Ibom (Ndoki), Cross River (around the border with Ebonyi state) and Edo (Igbanke - an Ika group).

In Nigeria, the Igbos are found in the southeastern part of the country. They have five states, Imo State, Anambra State, Enugu State, Abia State and Ebonyi State. They have some of them in Delta State, Edo State, Benue State and Rivers State.

The Igbos live almost in all the states in Nigeria and some of them have lived there for a longtime so they now have some of their descendants in those states. All the states in Nigeria has Igbos in them although they may not be citizens but many of them have dwelled there and have mixed up with the people and have shared commonalities with the people.
