Welcome to Umu Onitsha Ado, the New England Chapter of Onitsha Associations

Igwe Alfred Nnaemeka Achebe
Obi of Onitsha, Agbogidi

Onitsha, directly east of Lagos, Nigeria, is the most densely populated area in Africa after the Nile Valley. Built on the banks of the Niger River, Onitsha was battered and bruised by the Biafran War but has since regained its vitality. Its chief attraction is the new market, one of the most vibrant in Nigeria, which specialises in books.

According to Chinua Achebe, Onitsha has always attracted the 'exceptional, the colourful, the bizarre'.
