With de advent of de British Colonial masters which came in company of de christain religion,most of de tradition and belief system of de Igbo Communities have gone into extinction.But Edda community in de Southern political zone of Ebonyi stands out as one of de Igbo communties dat has reserved and sustained most of its cultural heritage,particularly de IKEJI FESTIVAL. *

However,Nguzu Edda de traditional headquarters of Edda,is a city on de White Hill which means Ugwu Nzu.It is belived to be one of de earliest settlements in Ebonyi,having established when de traditional royal court was set up at Atamata Nguzu Edda. *

More so,Like any other community,yam is belived to be the king of their variety of crops.So ikeji in Edda is celebration of Harvest.The ceremonies marking de festival transcend harvesting and eating of yams.Its was and still more like a political congregation of sorts,a unifying forum and realignment of political stake holders and their friends. *
