The phrase “Chukwu Okike Abiama” became overly pronounced especially by the IPOB group of recent.

Many people including Igbos have no idea of its meaning.

However, contrary to recent believe, Chukwu Abiama is a pagan God and not what many of us believe it is. Chukwu Abiama was the name given to the central God of the Arochukwu people.

Chukwu Abiama which means the god that reveals truth was very instrumental during slave trade because the shrine which housed the god was more like a supreme court in Arochukwu, anybody who was found guilty was either dedicated to the gods (Osu) or sold to the whites as a slave.

It’s funny to find many Christians now using the phrase Chukwu Okike Abiama, if only they knew which God they are calling.

The claim that Chukwu Abiama means God of Abraham is just another attempt by some low self-esteem Igbos to rewrite the Igbo history and solidify their irrational claim of Jewish ancestry.
