A theatre company will be showcasing the effects of slavery on the African  a community in Lagos. With emphasis to the Igbo ethnicity.  It has been noted that Igbo, one of  a the most populous tribes in Africa was one of the tribes / ethnicity that was affected/hit negatively  by the slave trade era.
