language: Owe eri na-echi isi, meaning, ‘the leaders from time
immemorial, that crown the head’) is a classical example of the use of Igbo numerology writing. The name implied that Oweri leaders chose the King of Israel. King David (Di wụ edo – a man fair in complexion) was the first King of Owerri. King Solomon (Isi e lo ama ana – the head that thinks wisely for the land) was the second king of Owerri. The villages that comprise Owerri would derive their
names from their roles in the Crucifixion of Christ who was one of them but hailed from the Amawọm (Igbo language: Ama owe m, meaning, ‘the settlement of my leader’, called the City of David in the Bible). The Owerri nchi-ise villages include Ụmụọrọrọnjọ (Igbo language: Ụmụ rọrọ njọ, meaning, ‘those that conceived this transgression’); Ụmụoyima (Igbo language: Ụmụ e nye ama, meaning, ‘those who disclosed the information (where He was)’; Ụmụeche (Igbo language: Ụmụ e che, meaning, ‘those who were placed on guard’); Ụmụọdụ (Igbo land: Ụmụ ọdụ meaning ‘those that offered the counsel’). The people who revealed to the Roman authorities that, Jesus was stirring up the Jews against their authority were called na-eji ibe a kọ, meaning, ‘tells on kinsmen [to the authorities]’. In recent past, some people attempted to change their village name to remove the word ‘transgression’–njọ, and
substitute it for ‘good’–ọma, but some of the people involved started dying mysteriously. The village names remain the same to this day as a mark of penitential rites for their role in the death of Christ Jesus. Oru Owerri (Igbo language: Uru Oweri, meaning ‘the sorrow of the leaders from time immemorial,’, it is called the Good Friday’). The word ‘Good Friday was a mistranslation of the Igbo words: Orie Ọma, meaning, ‘the Day He was offered to God at the Temple’. The Festival takes place at ugwu Ekewma Arugo (Igbo language: ugwu ekwe Ọma arụ ogo – skull shrine of the abomination of the district; Biblical Calvary). The Orie day was the day of His (Jesus) death as He was offered to Almighty God for
our sins’. However, the Mesorite Jews translated the Igbo word ‘ọma’, which also means ‘good’, and Orie day which could be a Friday (Igbo four-day calendar: Orie; meaning ‘the day He was offered to Almighty God’; Hebrew: Yom Shishi (Hebrew: ישש םוי : yọọ m eshi ishii, meaning ‘pray to me on the sixth day’) in the Gregorian Calendar, hence, they called it ‘Good Friday’. The Oru Owerri Festival (correctly called Uru Oweri, meaning ‘the sorrow of the leaders from time immemorial,’) is celebrated to this day, with a meal of roasted yam (ahụhụ ji), you pour (kwaa) red oil from fresh spongy palm frond (mmanụ elu) used as object forms for the subject expression in Igbo language: ahụhụ e ji kwaa Mma nụ elu, meaning ‘the suffering which was used to wake the Eternal Goodness from above (Christ Jesus)’. The breaking of the Yam is performed by a dynastic King of the line of King David called nde na-eje ama ana eze (mistransliterated as Njemanze) who are nde ji isi eze or Ji isi ọsa (mistransliterated as sons of Jesse in the Bible). They are of the lineage of Eke-na-Okorie (Igbo language: e kee oko Orie – the regenerated men of God) who rose with Jesus Christ [Matthew 27:52-53] from the dead. They were called the Maccabeans (Igbo language: nde e mee a kaa aka ebe Ose – people who were forced to bear witness to Almighty God) in the book of 2 Maccabees, put to death in 167 B.C by Antiochus Epiphanes IV at Mbarị (Igbo language: mba rị – worship the idols here for the ‘people to survive’) infront of the Old Stadium. The so-called (incorrectly) New Yam festival elsewhere in Igbo land is a replication of the Uru Owe eri, mistakenly called the Good Friday. This can only be, because it is a heavenly scripted event of Drama Divina by Almighty God. The period preceding the Uru Oweri Festival was marked by penitential rites of twenty-one days duration of the Lenten period of total abstinence from food, sex, and any activities aside from prayers. This took place at Okpukpe ikpe – Pennitential rites land presently called Okpukporokpe or Area K in New Owerri.
