Early in the 16th century the Igbira (Okpoto or Ibo) were one of the most powerful pagan peoples of Nigeria and had their capital at Iddah.
At a later period the Bassas conquered the western portion of the state and the Munshis the eastern, while the Okpoto still held the south and a wedge-shaped district partially dividing the Munshis and Bassas.
The Munshis, though also good agriculturists, are a warlike and most unruly race, as are also the Okpoto.
The Okpoto, however, remain turbulent, as do their neighbours the Munshis.
