The Umunede Kingdom has celebrated this year’s Igwe festival. The colourful ceremony was held on Wednesday, April 4, 2018.
According to the Obi of Umunede, His Royal Majesty, Dr. Ezeagwu Ezewali Agadagidi I JP, “the Igwe festival is annually and the most celebrated festival in Umunede. It is a forum to thank the gods of the land for a successful farming season in 2017 and also an avenue to appreciate the gods for their blessings upon the people of Umunede. The ceremony begins a night before the actual day which is followed with the beating of drums, enchantment of songs and dance. This is the only festival that brings our sons and daughters who are abroad to come home”.
The monarch wishes the Umunede people a happy Igwe festival.
