Wow; my mother used this term a lot. Nnu ego ili n'ego nabo=four hundred,two naira. Nnu ego ise= two hundred. I have never heard my mother use "puku","nari" nor "nde". Those are more like the modern invention.

You are right! Sort of mixed up in my head. My granny used the term "nnu" a lot. But I can't actually translate it to real figure. I'm so sure that N200 is "ofu akpa ego"

400. This is where traditional count stops, before million, billion etc. became recently introduced.
