Igbo society is one of the densely inhabited ethnic groups in Nigeria, an ethnic group with enviable cultures, traditions, and religions. The Igbo people are deeply religious by nature. They have a sense of deep respect for the sacred. The early Missionaries, Colonialists, and neighbouring ethnic groups have misconceptions of the Igbo people. The Colonialists have referred to the Igbo nation as Kingless race – Igbo Enwe Eze. Prior to the Vatican Council II, the Church had a negative attitude towards Igbo Traditional Religions. Unfortunately, this negative impression had resulted in an intensive controversy over the reconciliation of the Igbo Traditional Religion with the Gospel Message of Jesus Christ.
