Some residents practise Traditional religion, although most are Christians. Ikem, Neke, and Eha Amufu adore Odo. They make form Nsukka’s Igbo-Odo subculture with Ohodo, Ukehe, and Aku. The Odo masquerade portrays a deity who allows the living to connect with their dead in accordance with Igbo reincarnation beliefs. Dr Ralph Ede Okwor writes in Ikem Diaspora that “the Odo masquerade is usually and praisingly addressed as ‘Odomangala’, ‘a spirit of pride’, or ‘a spirit that instils pride in the people it protects’, indicating that as long as it (Odo) exists, people will always feel proud, happy, and confident of their security.” Young adults are inducted into the Odo’s masquerade cult every two years. Uninitiated aren’t allowed out at night while Odo are unclothed. Christians and traditionalists sometimes misunderstand these customs.
