Today was indeed a very special day as ndi Ukpor turned out in huge numbers to mark this massively significant ceremony In the cultural calendar of our beloved home town.
In preparation for the Iri ji festival in a couple of days, the ahia okika event is used to garner consensus amongst all the people and to offer prayers for the progress of the community as well as individual members home and abroad.
Ahia Okika is usually held on the same day as the major market day of the town. In the case of Ukpor this is the great Afor market.
Enjoy the following sights and sounds from a very colourful Ahia okika 2019.
Let’s do it again on Saturday 14th September at Obi Ùkwù- traditional seat of Eze.
Day 1 of the funeral for our dear late matriarch was quite successful.
Here are some sights and sounds..

Let us all congratulate our brother who just graduated from the school of theology.
His ordination comes up 13th July
We celebrate you brother.
Great people of Uhuori ukpor… it’s time to get up, come out and be counted.
Obi Ezeocha is at the very root of the history of Uhuori and ukpor. Ezeocha was a great Uhuori man and Eze of Ukpor. His Obi at afor was the central court for all ndi ukpor. Adjacent to the Udo Ukpor altar.
We are now renovating this historic site to a world standard cultural monument.
Be a part of this and write your family name in stone.
There will also be a paved walk way around the perimeter of obi and Udo shrine.
The highest donors will get a chance to have their names immortalized using plaques along this path.
Name spots on the ANCESTORS board are limited!
