African gods: Nne Miri and Onabuluwa the progenitors of the Ogbanje spirit

Last Updated on June 19, 2021 by MyGh.Online

Normal people pass through them and are unperturbed but not the Ogbanjes.

Ogbanje means one who comes and goes, and they reincarnate through Nne Miri and Onabuluwa.

The Ogbanje phenomenon arises at these portals of entry. It is believed that people who are reincarnating make a contract with these deities and thus alter the life contract already made with Chukwu the supreme being and their chi (personal spirit or soul).

However, the Mami Water does not give things freely, she interferes with the Ogbanje’s ability to form a strong or lasting relationship in marriage, or she gives the Ogbanje a short life span or gives her in marriage to one of her spirits.

The Ogbanje will have to make sacrifices and live-in allegiance to the Mami Water spirit.

It should be noted Ogbanjes always exist in groups.

Onabuluwa is “more crude, dramatic and coercive”. She convinces people to change their life contract.

When she eventually gets married, she will not have a child.

  1. Sharing food with unseen people.
  2. Talking to oneself
  3. Hearing voices
  4. Falling and screaming from unseen blows
  5. Fighting unseen people
  6. Violent dreams
  7. Beautiful female

Ogbanjes are troublesome, short tempered and violent and usually threaten to die when they do not get their way. After a while, they do not remember their tantrums.

It could be all the above, neither or one of them. What do you think?
