EXCLUSIVE: See list of simple Idoma Expressions and their English Translations

By Richard Anyebe

The Idoma language is a unique simple language which many Idoma sons and daughters cherish and always want to communicate with it in public. But against this backdrop, not many of them know how to speak it fluently. And worst still, not many and even some other tribes (who love the language) know some of the simplest expressions that are being spoken on a daily basis. 

To ground you in some of these expressions, Freedom Sunrise News therefore presents to you some of these simple expressions and their translations (replies) in English language:
