Original title reads, "House of the priest of the Mgbom Village men's secret society, with Ibini Okpabe shrine in front (looks like a post). It's derived from Arochukwu." [Ottenberg field research notes, O Series,December 1951-March 1953].

"Two basic forms of the secret society are found in afikpo. One, deriving from Edda Village-group, occurs in the Itim villages. The most important differentiating feature is the presence of in each of the Itim communities of a priest and an assistant priest who play important roles in directing the society's rituals and who have a special house in ...

"In afikpo there are some twenty different named titles (meme), for men and three for women. These are not forms of address but positions acquired by joining a title society.

"Mkpoghoro is also called Ndibe, though this term is more correctly applied to its main section. It is by far the biggest Afikpo village, with a total of population of 3,862. Ndibe, composed of two main wards, Agbogo and Elogo, and one smaller ward, has, in 1960, a population of 2,040, and the remainder of the village is formed from five subvillage...

The obu foundation, with ibini okpabe shrine in foreground and in back the otosi shrine, both associated with the obu." [Ottenberg field research notes, O Series,December 1951-March 1953].

The founder's house is believed to have been located where the shrine stands an...

Often they are placed at the base of a tree, in a group of natural rocks or specifically constructed rock platforms, or in a shrine house, or are found at farms, along paths, in the commons of villa...
