Journey to ogba ukwu cave and waterfall

My journey was smooth and easy today being 13 of January 2021..

On my way to ogba ukwu cave and waterfall. At first I thought it was only waterfall not knowing this ogba waterfall has a cave until today..

When we get to ekeawka, I took a bus going to umunze. The journey was 1hr 17mins which i calculated with my time watch..

The bus drop me at umunze market where I too another bus going to owerre- ezukala community where the ogba ukwu cave and waterfall is located..

Immediately I drop from the bus, the environment looks so strange as if the people in it are posses..

The way the villagers were starring at me was something else…

Suddenly this guy from no where just burst out and was like hey! Where u they go and I was some how speechless because of the way the boy look’s, he look’s like an obtainer as a street boy and ruggelity I stood my ground and answer him with full confidence, Am heading to ogba waterfall and he said is not just waterfall but it also have a cave that’s why it’s called ogba ukwu cave and waterfall

I also told him am a travel blogger and I will love to promote this place…I show him some other places have been to here in Anambra state. He was like have I been to ogbunike cave and I replied yes boss; he smiles and said ogbunike cave is learning, compare to ogba ukwu cave and waterfall. I was like that sound so interesting… can we be begin the journey I said.

After we discuss for some length, he said I should bring 10k for bike and youth money for settlement..

I ask him why 10k..he told me both of us can’t go there alone that we have to gather some other youth to come with me. I asked why the youth and he was not giving me straight answer..

Base on what I want to achieve, i decided to give them the money so that we can go…

 The boy left my stand and went out to gather some youth.. immediately he left,  An old man from no where came out and said to me, that journey will not have head because by this time ogba ukwu cave and waterfall is very dangerous to visit base on the wild animals and their god guiding there..

And he continues if I really want to pay visit to this destination, I should come during or a day before children’s day because that is when the Hunter’s in the village we hunt and chase this wild animals inside the forest and also appeal to the spirit of the cave for visitors to visit…

He continue by telling me those are the days ogba ukwu cave and waterfall gate  is open for just that day after that day if you are coming back, you are on your own…

Recall: I also discovered that the ogba ukwu cave and waterfall is the boundary between Enugu, Abia and Imo state that show’s the mystery about that place….

I also discovered that the god guiding the cave is called owerre and also the cave is the largest cave in West Africa…

Many more things which I can’t say for now..

.

But the truth remain I must definitely go back their very soon not just only me but with some arm Force’s..

I plead to the governor of Anambra state to help in developing that community not just the community also the ogba ukwu cave and waterfall with maximum security I mean maximum security to make it accessable so that it will be easier and safety for tourist anytime they visit…

Lastly I saw the tallest building in Anambra state, is located in that same village but looked abandon…sorry I did not take any pictures because of rescue mission at that point…
