Igbo Bible - New Testament

Igbo (English: EE-boh, also US: ; Igbo: Ásụ̀sụ̀ Ìgbò [ásʊ̀sʊ̀ ìɡ͡bò] (listen)) is the principal native language of the Igbo people, an ethnic group of southeastern Nigeria. It has about 27 million speakers and is made up of over 20 dialects, though dialect levelling appears to be occurring. A standard literary language was developed in 1972 based on the Owerri (Isuama) and Umuahia (such as Ohuhu) dialects, though it omits the nasalization and aspiration of those varieties. Related Igboid languages such as Ika, and Ogba are sometimes considered dialects of Igbo;. Igbo is recognized as a major language of Nigeria. Other Igbo speaking communities can be found in Brazil, Jamaica, USA, Bahamas, Trinidad and Tobago, Sierra Leone, and Ghana.
