A Nigerien woman has left people from the South-Eastern part of Nigeria in awe after a video of her speaking Igbo fluently surfaced online.
The woman was interacting with an Igbo man in Awka, Anambra state and she pleaded with him to celebrate Christmas for she and her kid.
In the video which has gone viral, a crowd had gathered to look at the woman and her little daughter. She said that whatever the man speaking with he chooses to do or give them, that God would bless him.
The man expressed shock, saying that he thought she was a Fulani woman, but she denied being one and alleged that Fulani’s are killing her people in Niger Republic.
The fluency with which she spoke Igbo language amazed many netizens who shared their thoughts online.

@Geraldchuks_99; Bro, I had this similar encounter at ojuelegba under bridge, very beautiful people, and they speak fluently. I was so shocked to my spine they are not Fulani .
@__God_son; She speaks igbo fluently than me that’s an Owerri boy…
@faevorh; Oboi see as she dey speak igbo…. Ebuka see your life Man
@Care2Love_; I’ve met few of them before when traveling to the East, they speak Igbo fluently and some of them have been living in the East all their lives. I always feel for them cos they’re seeking for alms.
@Obiora_ogb; She’s beautiful. The effort she has put into survival can be estimated from the fact that she speaks Igbo with such a flawless accent. I wish her well and pray she elevates.
