The Igbo people are an ethnic group native to the priest-day south-central and southern Nigeria and also Equatorial Guinea. There have been many speculations about the origin of the Igbo people, as it is unknown how exactly the group came to existence. According to oral tradition and many writers of Igbo history, Eri is to the Igbos while Oduduwa is to the Yorubas.

Eri's origin is unclear, though he had been described as a sky being sent by Chukwu (God). Eri, the god-like founder of Nri, is believed to have settled the region around 948 with other related Igbo cultures following after in the 13th century.

According to the Bayajidda Legend, the Hausa states were founded by the sons and grandsons of Bayajidda, a prince whose origin differs by tradition but official canon records him as the person who married the last Kabara of Daura and heralded the end of the matriarchal monarchs that had erstwhile ruled the Hausa people.
