History :

Ali Unwara unu jokwa oo. Historical note about Unwara. By ancient tradition the Unwara people are said to enjoy the headship and senior partnership with six brothers in the family of seven. These brothers where Unwara, Amaseri, Nguzu, Ohafia, Akaeze , and Mpu in their order of seniority. It is believed that these seven brothers moved together from their original home around Ukana near Arochukwu and founded Elu Ohafia. From there they moved northwards to a point near Abiriba where they some pitched skirmishes and disputes cause them to move camp once more. Here, Igbere and his children moved westward Abiriba and settled at the place still known as Igbere. Further movements and settlements brought about the founding of Nguzu, Ekoli Unwara ,and Ogwuma, and Eluunwara, before Amaseri and Mpu moved on to found their own areas. The senior brothers and his immediate relatives, after settling for some time between Ekoli, Ogwuma and Eluunwara, held council and decided to move eastwards : first, in search of their brethern, secondly in quest of more military adventures, and thirdly for farmland. The movements, it must be noted, were not without some difficulties and personal sacrifices. The Unwara ara said to have been military in nature and mercenary in habit. Minstrels tell us that Unwara crack battallions, as brave soldiers, took part in tribal war as far off as Awkuzu and Elugwu (Enugu). In pursuit of the third objective, namely more farmland, they divided again: the Agha Inya and the Nnam Agha. One group moved eastward to the southern part of Unwara, called Ohata, while the other group moved towards the northeast through Udelegbe, Oziza , Ndibe, Ehohia-Nkalu and on to Enohia kpoghirikpo and Ichiakara. The Agha Inya group moved across a stream further east from their settlement by felling the trunk of a tree called Uburubo, and later named that stream Ngele Uburubo. They settled at Agbafia, Igom, and Adim Abini in the Ugep area. When the tow groups had parted, they had hoped to meet again somewhere farther east . Now, in disappointment and dissatisfaction in the nature of the land on the other side of the stream, the recrossed back to Ahonta where they settled, in utter disblief that they had forever lost their brethern . The Nnam group, which we call Ndemiyi also resigned themselves to the thought of having lost their brethern at Ichiakara. These events happened 2000 years ago. It is worth noting that the Ngele Uburubo is the self same Cross River meandering in a southerly direction and scanning the alluvium deposit below the western portion of the Ohan Hills. Unwara perches beautifully at a most unique sport at the tapering southwestern end of the Oban Plateau-a city set on the hill UNWANA.
