1. THE AZUMINI BLUE RIVER

The Azumini river is known as the blue river, it is located in Abia state close to Akwa Ibom. It is a crystal clear water that got its freshness aqua blue from the nature beauty of the grasses and trees around it. The fishes and water animals could be seen inside the water including the items at the bottom of the rivers. The beauty emanates fully when the sun shines on the river which would leave the viewers marveled. It is also surrounded by the azumini hill which provides a wonderful view to the river. This has been a major tourist attraction for visitors coming to the state.

I see. Is Nigeria a country where people are well enough to travel for such attractions? Those in charge will even steal from us to go and see foreign offers.

if Nigeria was a planned country with visionary leaders, revenue generated from tourist sites would have been funding at-least 10% of our budget.

yes na!!! Abia state criminalizzed kidnapping....

When our Niger delta brothers were kidnapping, the kidnapees were been fed chicken and burger and Mr Biggs rice.....

But when our york and columbia boys from abia entered the game, nwanne, they started feeding people with koboko...3times a day.....tie you to trees, blindfold u for days before your release from captivity..... and sometimes, still kill the victim after collecting huge ransom....

If you like bro, go and try your luck tongue

How many states in Nigeria today are more safe than Abia state? If indeed you are from Abia state then shame on you.
Lagos with all the killings by Badoo and other cultists. What about kidnappings and ritual killings ravaging Lagos and the rest of the SW? Are people no longer going to those places? What about Northern states reeling from a combo of Boko Haram killings and kidnappings as well as herdsmen killings and maiming?? What about ND with ongoing violence in Rivers, Bayelsa etc??
Is it not approaching a decade since osisikankwu was killed?
Ahu odikwa gi? Nna, ndi muru gi gba aka nwa cry

Op, you didn't add the enchanting Okigwe rolling hills close to Okigwe?
