HAVE YOU EVER VISITED INACHALO STREAM IN IDAH? IF NO, YOU NEED TO


Inachalo stream is one of the two major historical streams in Idah. This is the last stream before Idah town when coming from Nsukka (Uchoka) side. It is small, isn’t it? Good, small and powerful.It is the stream poisoned by Ayegba Oma Idoko siblings now Angwa Ayegba people invited by Attah Ayegba Oma Idoko from Bebeji, Kano state from among the Wukari warriors (Jukun and Igala) led by Ohiado Aliyu (other sources call him Otalu) which led to many deaths  on the Jukun side after drinking the water while their remaining few warriors went back, hence the end of the war before it commenced. An Igala Princess, Princess Omodoko was buried alive beside the stream too as part of the spiritual processes that will make the war not to reach Idah town. War formula, isn’t it? Such sacrifice happened not only in Igala land because of war. Till date, the fishes in the stream are not eatable. In fact, e no cook no matter how long you keep it on fire. Lesson: Winning of battle is not only about strength but spirituality. Take it!Well, visit this spot yourself. #touristpoint3
