Love-struck Akwa Ibom Women Warned To Stop Killing Tortoise To Prepare Their Love Portions

Huh! ?



Director of Biodiversity Preservation Center, BPC, in Akwa Ibom State, Dr. Edem Eniang, has expressed concern over the widespread hunt for tortoises in Akwa Ibom State by women for the preparation of love potions, popularly known as Kop nno mi for their lovers and other charms.


Dr. Eniang, a University of Uyo, UNIUYO, lecturer, who spoke at a campaign, “Conserve Nigerian Endangered Tortoises, Don’t Hunt Them, Don’t Use Them For Love Potions,” in Mbiakong community, Uruan local government area, said that the survival of the animal is greatly endangered in the state, as it was daily hunted for meals and preparation of love concoctions, popularly known in the area as Kop nno mi and charms for fortune seekers.



The BPC director stated that “the rate at which the animal is hunted for fetish reasons is worrisome and may likely force the animal to go into extinction,” calling on the people, especially hunters, to stop hunting the creature.


Between tortoises and tradition: Eniang recalled that the Oba of Benin, His Royal Mayesty, Omo N’Oba N’Edo, Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, recently received a 145-year- old tortoise as a gift from his friend, the Emir of Borgu.


He said, The Queen of England also used a live tortoise to inaugurate the University of Ibadan in the late 1940s and the tortoise was a graduate of the University of London at the age of 50 and has remained alive till date.


The Village Head of Mbiakong Chief Hyacenth Nyong Okon, said: “I am not a woman, it is the women, who like to use it to force their husbands to love them, my own is to kill and eat. We do not use tortoise for rituals, we only use the hard shell to play the Nabo traditional dance.

Use to hear about this kop no mi in Onitsha. If Calabar or Akwaibom chick cook for you with that, if you're married, you will send your wife packing. If you're single, you will marry her against all odds.

Choi! So this was what was prepared for amale corp member when we were serving @ AKS that even made him run mad. If it's not Ekaette, there is nothing anyone says that he will listen to. He ended up not passing out with us as his people were called to come and take him home.

Monica Ikejibe said...

Not so smart princess, the story has no inference to Calabar people nor witches and wizards. Princess of stupidity!

Monica Ilah said...

Dummy princesses, how wound you sir behind your cheaply or whorely acquired keypads and infer that Calabar people and akwa ibom people are the same. Secondly who has said anything about witches? Your little castle must be hot, hence daft comment.

Yori Yori Princess Loveme Jeje said...

Akwaibom is Ibibio,Crossriver is Efik.

This is the first I'm hearing about this tortoise story.
Akwaibom people are not witches.
Akwaibom people are not all great in bed,I know because I'm a log of wood in bed(rolls eyes).
Not all Akwaibomites have ding dong

Tide, Cross River isn't Efik, Cross River contains the Ugeps, Ogojas, Iyala etc ....Calabar is the state capital of cross river but we don't understand ourselves in terms of language.

Nope. We have numerous tribes between cross river and akwa ibom.
