Akassa Slave Transit Camp and Tunnel


Situated at Ogbokiri, close to Akassa in Brass LGA, the Akassa Slave Transit Camp and Tunnel was used as slave camp during the slave trade, and from here the slaves were shipped to the Americas and the Caribbean in the New World.

The houses were made of solid iron and bricks, and the restraining chains that were used to fetter slaves as they awaited shipment are still visible at the camp, and the tunnel through which slaves were stoked away can still be seen at the tourist destination today.

Anyone can visit the slave camp today and revisit the old days when our people were stolen away to foreign nations.
