Abstract
Ójí Ìgbò is highly reverenced by the Ìgbò people. This reverence comes
from their considering it as a rare gift from God Almighty. For them, it is a
gift of life and as such must be celebrated. This paper discusses this gift. It
presents the interpretation given to it by the people. Again, it describes the
ójí Ìgbò according to the number of lobes it may have and looks beyond this
to reveal other things about it. The highlight of the discussion is the account
of how the ójí Ìgbò is celebrated. On the whole, the goal of eating the ójí
Ìgbò is determined; it is to energize, enhance and protect the life given by
God.
