Ogoriba Uge Festival

Ogoriba Uge Festival

The Ogoriba Uge festival takes place every July 27. It is celebrated among the people of Odi in Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Area of the State. It is a celebration to commemorate the historical killing of a wild Buffalo.

The story had it that this Buffalo would mysteriously appear without warning to launch selective attacks on the people of Odi. The tragic events of each attack which usually result in loss of life continued for many years and every effort made to kill the beast proved abortive.

It was not until appropriate traditional appeasement ritual had been carried out that it was finally captured. The killing of the Buffalo brought peace to the community and to celebrate this landmark deed, the festival was born involving elaborate cultural performances which draw visitors from far and near.
