Ikot Abasi was formerly administered as part of the Opobo District established in 1892. The district initially comprised Opobo and Ikot Abasi. But by the second decade of the 20th century, it had been extended to include Andoni and Ogoni areas. Consequently, Opobo District was divided by the Imo River into two halves - the Opobo and the Ogoni to the west, the Ibibio of Ikot Abasi to the east while the Andoni occupied the fringes along the seaboard (Lovering, 1915).


This category examines and analyses the advent of colonial rule; the establishment of colonial administration; the political, social and economic development; and the infrastructure provided in Ikot Abasi in the period 1900 to 1960. All these developments are dealt with in four broad periods: the Advent of Colonial Rule, dating roughly from 1850 to 1899; the Establishment and Consolidation of Colonial Administration, 1900 to 1929; the Native Authority (NA) Era, 1931 to 1950; and the period of Collapse and Rejuvenation 1950 to 1960.
