A Town In Kano State Founded By An Igbo Man

This is very possible. You know Igbos are experts at attracting commercial activity to a place. Igbos are first rate investors. Read below:

Do You know that the Town Kwankwaso in Kano State, the Home of
the former State Governor, Dr Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso was founded by an Igbo
Trader, Mr Okonkwo about 90 years ago?

The Story
An Igbo trader called Mr. Okonkwo found a convenient farm gate site
along the railway track leading to Kano where he could buy, thresh and
mill groundnut.
He set up his thresher and mill and erected a signboard
reading “OKONKWO & SONS ENTERPRISES”. Soon he started getting
patronage from neighboring villagers and farmers who found it convenient
for trade because of proximity to the railway. With time, the spot became
lively with business activities and people started erecting huts and market
stalls.
