  1. Ekpe

    Ekpe, also known as Mgbe (Ekoi language: Leopard), is a Nigerian secret society flourishing chiefly among the Efiks of the Cross Riverte, the Ibibio, the Uruan and the Oron of Akwa Ibom State, Arochukwu and some other parts of Abia State, as well as in the diaspora, such as in Cuba and Brazil. The society is still active at the beginning of the 21st century, now playing more of a ceremonial role. There are two distinct but related societies. The primary society is located in the Cross River, Arochukwu and Akwa Ibom areas of Nigeria, and the secondary society consists of members from the Southern and Eastern Igbo groups of the same country. It is a general belief amongst the Ibibios and Efiks, although hardly ever substantiated, that the members of the Ekpe society invented the Nsibidi.
