Villagers gather in their numbers to undergo spiritual cleansing in celebration of Eri festival in Anambra state

People of Aguleri community in Anambra state gathered in their numbers to undergo a spiritual cleansing in commemoration of the 2016 Olili Obibia Eri (Eri Festival).

The villagers led by their traditional ruler, His Majesty, Eze Eri (Ezeora 34th & Aka Ji Ovo Igbo) gathered at the Omabala river in Aguleri where prayers were said before the spiritual cleansing began.
The festival which has been celebrated for many years by the Ezeora kings on the 8th native month of the year is in memory of the Eri's journey and his subsequent settlement.

Spiritual cleansing? The only cleansing anybody needs is that of the cleansing by the blood of Jesus on the cross.

Too bad few people knew about this....This particular Igbo dynasty has existed for so long and have produced 33 kings in the past....They are the original Igbo king as well the holder of the Ofor Eri, they are few of such types in igboland and not all these upcoming kings that buy their throne with money or via election ....
