Ukpa Ukpu Limini is the festival of Ogwu Akpanunwo which means the festival of the first son. Ekpeye and his entourage entered the hinterland through the creek (Utu) and landed at a lake called Odhulle in the swamp between Ula-Ubie and Ogoda villages, and it is now Ude (lake) Ubie.
Though dried up, the relics of the creek at Ikodu-Ekpeye can still be seen today, the shrine (Utu) is being worshipped at Ikodu Ekpeye. They settled at the Odhulle lake for a while after which they moved northwards and founded a good arable land where they settled and called the place Ulobe, meaning, a good place for dwelling.
At Ulobe, they celebrated the victory over Ikpachors and thanked their gods for their safe arrival to the place. That is the festival of OGWU UKPA- UKPU LIMINI, celebrated annually by Ubie communities at the beginning of farming season.
This festival is only met for the people of Igbu Ubie Kingdom..
