Nigerian DJ and media consultant, DJ Abass, has shared a bit of insight on the origin of the name – Port Harcourt.

According to the entertainer, the capital city of Rivers State was named after a sexual predator, Lewis Vernon Harcourt.

The DJ also called for a name change as he pointed out that Lord Lugard had named it Post Harcourt due to the absence of a direct local language at that time.
