Welcome to the colourful world of Abor people
His Royal Majesty Igwe Callistus Njeze, and traditional ruler of Umuavulu, Abor, goes home.
THE ABOR COMMUNITIES IN ENUGU STATE OF NIGERIA
The name, Abor, as used here, refers to the two distinct communities of Abor and Umuavulu Abor in Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State. Umuavulu Abor is a child of Abor, has developed from Abor, and, as her name reveals, is still proudly Abor, and cannot cut herself off from that rich legacy. The traditional rulers of Abor and Umuavulu Abor, respectively, are HRH Igwe C. Ngwudile, Agodom III of Abor, and HRM Igwe Dr. C. C. Njeze, Ujaligwa II of Umuavulu-Abor. Abor is situated on a highland, about two kilometers as the crow flies (in a straight course) from the famous Milliken Hill of Enugu capital city. Using the old road to Nsukka, the University town, Abor is about one kilometer from Ninth Mile Corner, Ngwo. It is bounded in the east by the Ekulu River and in the west by the Eke and Ebe towns. In the north of Abor is the Ukana town and in the south is the Ngwo town, wherein lies the Milliken Hill. Attempting to trace the history of Abor would confront one once again with Basil Davidson’s lament that “little is known about the distant past of the Ibo and their neighbours” (Davidson, “The Growth of African Civilisation, West African 1000-1800”).
