Towns, Villages and the four Ogba Groups
Over the years, Ogbas established roughly forty towns in aliulo i.e. “home land”, as distinct from Ogboru or “work place”. The number of towns varied slightly from time to time as a few old sites were abandoned and new ones were established.

OMOKU CITY: Capital of Ali-Ogba
The “Capital” of Ali-Ogba today is Omoku, which is situated almost at the northern extremity of the Ogba area. Geographically, Omoku is within the Usomini group. Ogba groups or clans, unlike the onuobdos, have spatial identity on the ground.
As the “Capital” of Ogba, it has become customary to exclude Omoku from any of the three distinct groups. Today, practically every onuobdo is represented in Omoku and each onuobdo in Omoku can trace its origin to one of the surrounding Ogba villages.
