Mma Udoma, a historical play written by Charles Ukpong is a treatise on the 1929 Women's revolt in Colonial Eastern Nigeria, in which the author sets out to correct the myth that the women's war of 1929 started in Aba. This is not only erroneous but misleading. Led by their iron-clad leader, Adiaha Edem Udoma, women nationalists from Bonny, Andoni , Kwa (lbibio/ Anang), Ogoni, Nkoro Ibo and Opobo (lkot Abasi) staged an anti-colonial revolt to redress tyrannical , insensitive and oppressive imposition of taxes on women, as well as other socio-political and economic grievances against the British Colonial Government. The first Outbreak of violence was at Opobo (lkot Abasi) , with disturbances spreading to Aba and other parts of Eastern Nigeria, as the women resolutely resisted the imposition of taxes on women. 1929 was no doubt a defining period in the annals of Nigerian history, when lbibio women in their hundreds, under the able leadership of Adiaha Edem Udoma, shed their blood to bring to an end, the oppressive tax regime against women.
