Poem on Overlooking the River

This renowned poem about the Ikot Abasi women's riot against colonialism is historical, and it is titled Overlooking the River. Ibibio Delicacies


Overlooking the River

From this route, they came
Women of vision… pride to behold…
The freedom fighter who mobilized to resist
That act of tax the colonial master bestowed
From here they came
The route of the river they follow
That history would bear them witness.

Stories of their conqueror
Are now told centuries thereafter
Women who fought the Ikot Abasi women riot
But see how history seeks to place them wrong
Didn’t they say it was the Aba women's riot?
But where was it fought?

Come to Ikot Abasi
Ask about the Independence Park
From there you would see the Obelist
For the victims of the women’s war of 1929.
