History of Ezeagu Local Government Area, Enugu State
Headquarters is in the town of Aguobu-Owa. History has it that the six villages in Aguoba Owa all migrated from Imezi Owa. Of the six villages, Umuaji is the oldest followed by Ogwofia, Umudim, Ezedume, Ezema and Okunito. The people of Ezeagu are known popularly for abacha as the most common staple food. Abacha is made from grated cassava that has been cooked before grating. The starch is then washed off and is then processed dry. Abacha is better prepared in local pots popularly called “Oku'' (means “fire” in Igbo) than in modern pots. It’s produced both in subsistence and commercial quantity.
The popular Ezeagu waterfall is located here. It is called ‘Ogbagada’ which is about 23 meters high, a natural lake and a three kilometre long cave full of tunnels and chambers. Fancy a dip? Or a full on submerge? You won’t be disappointed
