UBANG - A community where males speak separate language from females

Posts 1 to 8 of 8

UBANG in Obudu Local Government Area of Cross River State is a community where the males speak a separate language from their female counterparts.

They are located in the Northern part of Cross River State, Ubang is approximately six hours drive from Calabar, the State Capital.

The bi-lingual heritage of the Ubang clan dates back to centuries ago and different versions have it that, upon creation, the Ubang people were especially favoured by God to be custodians of two languages.

It is considered a taboo for the male to speak the tongue of the women and vice versa even though, both understand themselves while speaking.

Those who in the past attempted to speak the tongue of other s*x were ridiculed by the community which naturally put a stop to it.

For the community, the gift of language variation remains a thing of pride to the Ubang people and have successfully passed the tradition from generation unto generations.
