However, before I go further to give the detail result of my research, as regards, the manifestation of Satire in oral poetry of Igbanke, I shall first of all give a detail background of Igbanke community.

1.1DETAILED BACKGROUND OF IGBANKE COMMUNITY

The Origin of Igbanke

1.4LANGUAGE SPOKEN

Igbanke community speaks “Ika”. Ika is a language spoken by some parts of Delta e.g. Agbor and Igbanke in Edo state. Such towns and villages in Delta state and Igbanke in Edo State which speak Ika were formally known by the name “Bendel Ibo” until they were split into Delta and Edo state, which is why we now have speakers of “Ika” in Delta state and also in Edo state.

Description:

Ika is Igbo-like language with a blend of few other languages such as: Benin, Yoruba, Oredo, among others.

1.5RULERSHIP STRUCTURE

Igbanke community is ruled by rulers with such titles as: Obi, Eze and Enogie depending on the village. That is at the kingship level.

At the family level, Okiolor (meaning the ruler of the house), presides over the family and it is the oldest male member of the family that does this.

Again, in a particular quarter of the village, the oldest man in that area who is given the title “OGELE”., rules over the quarter; while the Obi, Eze and Enogie rule over the various component villages.

1.6SUPREMACY OF AUTHORITY

Igbanke community is subjected to the authority of the Oba of Benin. Hence the Obi, Eze and Enogie all pay homage to the Oba of Benin as the Supreme ruler.
