Thus, a lot of communities in Igbo land still have those traditional beliefs alive and active in society even though other religions, especially Christianity have spread their presence around the society.
Such traditional beliefs are rarely mentioned until similar circumstances in some Igbo Communities occurred when the people of Iheakpu, Obollo Afor in Udenu Local Government Area of Enugu State banished a woman for allegedly cheating on her husband.
