Igboville is the number one online Igbo group with over fifteen thousand members spread across the globe. The group led protests in London and Dublin against the killing of Igbos in restive parts of northern Nigeria as well as organized free buses to evacuate Ndigbo to safety.
They also launched the campaign to stop posting Igbo graduates in troubled states for national service.

Within the short time of it's existence, the group has evolved into a strong voice for Ndigbo and is registered with Ohaneze Ndigbo and Nigerian government as Oganiru Ndigbo Foundation. The international Vice Presidents coordinate clusters of country chapters within their area as well as represent the President General at events in those locations.

The group which is in it's third year has hosted successful retreats at Afikpo, Nnewi and Aba with far reaching resolutions on Igbo issues that were well publicized in the media and copies forwarded to Igbo political leaders for consideration and implementation. Aba community enjoyed free medical services as part of the community service initiative of the members in December 2013. The next retreat is expected to hold in Imo State later this year and the online group remains a veritable information bank and think tank for Ndigbo.

The group is not affiliated to any political party but welcome all Igbos of different political persuasion in public and private sector as well as students of higher institutions, business men and other professionals.
