Read Inikpi’s Story before this – For a better understanding
To finally stop the Jukun tribe from penetrating and habiting on the Igala soil;
- a curse was laid on the river the Jukuns passed through to get into Igala Land.
- another Princess was buried alive close to the river.
- Fishes from the river were cursed to never get cooked so that the Jukun warriors won’t be able to feed when they penetrate.
Beside the river is a shrine (still active). The shrine is used to appease the gods of the river and to repledge covenants made to protect the land.
Also, very close to the river is the statue of a princess (Oma’doko) who was buried alive as part of the rituals to keep the Igala land safe.
Hope you visit Igala Land soon.
