About Imo

Named after the Imo River that marks its eastern border, Imo State lies in the south-east of Nigeria. It was formerly part of the medieval Kingdom of Nri and the 18th-century Aro Confederacy before it fell to the British during the Anglo-Aro War. Imo State has been nicknamed the “Eastern Heartland” and is an important cultural hub for the Igbo people.

Things to do in Imo

From the hustle and bustle of Owerri to the tranquility of Oguta Lake, Imo State is definitely worth a visit.

Sightsee in Owerri. Serving as the capital of Imo State, Owerri is a lively city and the heart of Igboland. It’s home to shopping malls and colourful markets, as well as a wide choice of eateries. For a cultural fix, head to the National Museum, which is filled with artefacts related to the history of Imo State and its people. Lions and monkeys can be seen at the Nekede Zoological Garden on the city’s southern outskirts.

Relax on the shores of Oguta Lake. Created by the damming of the Njaba River, Oguta Lake is a magnificent finger lake believed to be home to the goddess, Uhamiri. It served as a base for Biafran forces during the Nigerian Civil War and is now a popular setting for boating and fishing. Oguta Lake is a brilliant green colour and connects to a lake that is brown, with a clear line visible between the two.

Marvel at the Ada Palm Plantation. Sprawling between the towns of Amaofor and Egbema, the Ada Palm Plantation was established in 1975 and provided an important source of foreign income before the discovery of crude oil. It’s still a sight to behold, with its soaring palms swaying in the breeze on both sides of the road that connects Owerri and Port Harcourt.

Getting around Imo

Sam Mbakwe Airport is a 30-minute drive from the centre of Owerri and has flights to destinations across Nigeria. Long-distance buses connect to Owerri and travel to towns and villages throughout Imo State. Renting a car is the most convenient way of getting around.
