Mbaise is a region and a people located in Imo
State , southeastern Nigeria . Set in the heart of
Igboland , it includes several towns and cities.
The name "Mbaise" was derived from five cities:
Agbaja , Ahiara , Ekwereazu , Ezi na Ihite and Oke
Uvuru. The area of Mbaise (the three Local
Government Areas) is about 404 km²: Aboh
Mbaise (185 km²), Ahiazu Mbaise (111 km²),
Ezinihitte Mbaise (108 km²). The Mbaise Slogan
is Seat of Sages .

History


Before 1902, when the Aro expedition was
carried out by the British Colonial powers to
subdue the Aro slave trading oligarchy, Mbaise
had not come under British rule. But by 1906, at
the conclusion of the operation, the present day
Mbaise consisting of the three Local
Government Areas (Aboh, Ahiazu & Ezinihitte)
was effectively brought together under British
control while leaving in place a semblance of
local authority.
To keep the whole clan under effective
supervision, a native court was established at
Obohia in 1907 but pressure from the likes of
Chief Nwaturuocha of Nguru caused the transfer
of the court to Nguru in 1909. In 1929, the Nguru
court was destroyed as a result of the Igbo
Women's War . Sectional courts were
subsequently opened in Obohia, Itu , Ife and
Enyiogogu in response to the increasingly
popular "Home Rule" movement of the 1930s.
The coming together of the people under a
common political and administrative unit was
secured in 1941. By 1945 councils had been
formed based loosely on blocs of autonomous
communities. The group councils and their
number of autonomous communities recognized
in Mbaise were: Ezinihitte - 16; Agbaja - 7; Oke-
Uvuru - 4; Ekwerazu - 6 and Ahiara -6 (source:
Ekechi 1989:179) A few more autonomous
communities have been created in the past few
years. It was from councils that the three local
Governments were created. Ahiazu LGA was a
merger of Ahiara and Ekwerazu councils and
Aboh LGA was a merger of Oke-Ovoro and
Agbaja councils. Ezinihitte remained by itself
except for the secession of two small villages -
Isu Obiangwu and Umuohiagu which joined
Ngor-Okpala from the Agbaja area in Mbaise.

Culture and demographics

The people are Igbo. About 90% Catholics, while
Protestants and other religions comprise the
remaining amount.
The Nkwotile dance (rump dance) is common in
Mbaise. This is the chance used for celebrating
the annual yam festival and for propitiating the
yam god Ajoku (Ahanjoku). This dance has been
modified over the years to ekpe, mmanwu
(masquerade), Iroko, ekereavu, abigbo to mgba
(wrestling). Other music and dances include: "A
gbachaa E kuru Nwa", Alija, Edere, Egwu Onu
Nwa, Ekwirikwe Mgba, Ese, Nkelenke, Nkwa Ike,
Nkwa Udu, Ogbongelenge, Uko etc.

Modern Mbaise

Mbaise's population today is in excess of 1 million people. Subsistence farming still accounts for a major part of the occupation. Yams, cassava, palm fruits, vegetables and fruits are the main agricultural products.
However since the end of the Biafra/ Nigerian civil war, the quest for improved standard of living, academic excellence and the crave for enterprise have helped an unprecedented boost in the fortunes of Ndi Mbaise. Mbaise boasts of legions of doctors, lawyers, public administrators, educators, artists, engineers, scientists and entrepreneurs. Mbaise also has one of the highest concentrations of Catholic priest in the world. In addition, some famous ex- priests hail from the area, among the well- known ones include Eze Enyeribe Onuoha, the current traditional ruler of Umuchieze autonomous community in Ihitteaforukwu and Sylvester Eze Ebisike, a former management consultant and prolific writer and author of numerous books and publications. Ndi-Mbaise are avid travellers and adventurers. There is in progress a large flux to the Americas, Europe and Asia in search of new ideas to bring home.
