AFRICAN MYTHOLOGY

The Gods and Spirits of Africa

OGHENE

African Creator God

Also known as CGHENE

Extremely private Creator God

Very remote Top God of the Isoko people of Nigeria. He is the Great Unknown. In fact he is beyond human comprehension.

Worship in such circumstances is a little tricky, but luckily he does not appear to require much attention.

There are no temples devoted to him, and basically you’re on your own with this one. His private life is nothing to do with you. Trespassers will be zapped.
