Lying in the grave in the photos above are the remains of early colonial masters and European traders who introduced Trade by barter to “Eastern Nigeria.”

Some served under the Religious arm as Catholic Priests, some were soldiers (1st African frontier force), while some were individual businessmen who were into the slavery business (trade by barter) – for instance, they used what they had like; Umbrellas, cups, jugs, clothes, caps, etc., in exchange for human beings.
