Nsukka people’s level of spirituality is quite sophisticated. Their forebears were men and women rooted in spirituality and mysticism — giving rise to the high level of esotericism of the cultural zone located in Enugu North Senatorial Zone. This book digs deeper into the earliest spiritual foundation of the Nsukka people which informs their traditional religion. While the influence of Christianity can be said to have been strongly felt here, the obvious is that many are still tied by the spiritual foundation already laid by the founding patriarchs of Igbo Nsukka.
