Did You Know? Oyigbo Is In Aba Catholic Diocese, Owerri Ecclesiastical Province by Kamanuozuzu: 9:22am On Nov 21, 2020
“Obigbo, though in Rivers State, is in Aba Catholic Diocese, Owerri Ecclesiastical Province. So, you can now understand that Obigbo is within our jurisdiction.”

~Archbishop Obinna


Me: They changed the name, but forgot the religious jurisdictional placement.

Obigbo is and would remain the heart of Igboland. Politicians can play their politics but people's ethnicity cannot be tampared with. There're Chinese in Laos, Vietnam, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Macau, Hongkong, etc. Their ethnicity does not change.

Even the priest cannot stomach the rejection of Igbos by ikwere, the priest came out to protest, tribal senselessness, so there is no freedom of association again, it is attach by force.

You are a small boy the need you should research before commenting.

What the Op said is nearly obtainable in every state especially Anglican and catholic.



You maybe in a state but fell under ecclesiastical province in another state.

Not just Oyigbo or Obigbo but a general old pattern the church ( Anglican/catholic was structured)

learn learn learn.

You are in kwara state but always agitated by others. You are under the rulership of emir but feel insecure at any slightest issue especially down here.


The Archbishop is totally right and the way the church has been administered has been there before Nigeria which you cherish so much begin to exist.


Face north and allow faithfuls continue in their faith.

What are you talking about? Archbishop Obinna is a revered Bishop of the Catholic Church in Owerri. Aba and Obigbo falls under his eclesiastical province. He is only setting the records straight so that mischeif makers won't be decieving unsuspecting public.

Obigbo was forcefully renamed without the consent of the indigenous Ndoki Igbos that own the place (it has nothing to do with Ikwerre). It was done after the civil war as the Fulani controlled central government liased with the then Ijaw dominated Rivers State. Since then, they've been using scorched earth policies to discriminate the Obigbo people while trying fruitlessly to force them into denying being Igbos. The people since time Imo River wears their Igbo heritage identity like a batch of honor and will forever align with us from the SE.

Obigbo will never be in any other country except where Igbos go in the event of Nigeria breaking up and we will be 101% ready to go to war with any bastard country that would want to claim Obigbo. I'm happy they're not like the efulefus that shamelessly deny their roots, so it makes it very easy for us to defend and protect them whenever push comes to shove.

The fact that it lies about 10 minutes away from P.H is even a huge advantage for us to invade and deal decisively with the minorities if they try nonsense.

The question should rather be, who is your teacher?
The 5 SE states as well as 4 SS states namely Bayelsa, Rivers, Akwa Ibom and Cross River used to be under the jurisdiction of Enugu until regional form of governance was disbanded.

Ethnicity is something that has existed for centuries now, so it is nothing but tomfoolery to think that history started a few decades ago when the military government in Nigeria decided to unilaterally and arbitrarily redraw boundaries.

Ignorance in HD!
The area in question are ethnic Igbo. They used to be under the East Central state, later old Imo State until an arbitrary boundary demarcation put them in Rivers State, now how does ill-advised boundary adjustment now translate to they're no longer Igbos?

Half education and ignorance is as bad as illiteracy. SMH!
