Towns & Villages

Towns, Villages and the four  Ogba Groups

Over the years, Ogbas established roughly forty towns in aliulo i.e. “home land”, as distinct from Ogboru or “work place”. The number of towns varied slightly from time to time as a few old sites were abandoned and new ones were established.

EGI: AKABUKA, AKABUTA, EDE, EGITA, EREMA, IBEWA, ITU, OBAGI, OBIEBI, OBIGBOR, OBITE, OBIOSIMINI, OBOBURU, OBAKAGI, OGBOGU AND OHALELU.

IGBURU: IKIRI, EGBEDA, ELEITA, AMAAH, ELEHIA, OKANSU,OSHIAKPO, OHIUGHA,  UJU, OKPOSI,  OBIGWE and OGBIDI.

USOMINI: OBRIKOM, OBIE,  KREGANI, OHALIMINI, ALIGU, IDU-OSOBILE, OBOR, EBOGORO, OKPRUKPUALI, EBOCHA, ONUOSI OGU, ALENZOH, IDU-OSOBILE  and  OBOSUKWU

OMOKU CITY: Capital of  Ali-Ogba

The “Capital” of Ali-Ogba today is Omoku, which is situated almost at the northern extremity of the Ogba area. Geographically, Omoku is within the Usomini group. Ogba groups or clans, unlike the onuobdos, have spatial identity on the ground.

As the “Capital” of Ogba, it has become customary to exclude Omoku from any of the three distinct groups. Today, practically every onuobdo is represented in Omoku and each onuobdo in Omoku can trace its origin to one of the surrounding Ogba villages.

Only sum years back a female teacher from one of the south western state was burnt alive in one of the northern states after she caught one of the student cheating..it lerra turn out that the piece of paper she had seized from the student was torn out of a koran…my people that was the end of the story o(dem no wan hear the rest ), dem naked am, beat am like mad b4 dem burn am! Linda u could even do a research on this story because nobody has been held for the crime since! (It was pathetic I just had to brief it)
