Most people see them as Igbos, maybe because of their language similarities, but the Ųkwųani people are from Delta State, Nigeria. You will find them in the Northern part of Delta State and in some parts of Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni local government area of Rivers State, Nigeria.

If you care to know, the Ukwuani, Igbo, Ekpeye, Ika, and Ikwerre are not one language, they only belong to the one linguistic family of Igboid languages. Want more information about them? See Things you should know about Ukwuani people:
