Igbo Creator God
Also known as Chukuru, Chukwu, Chukwuabiama
Creator God of the Ibo people
In the beginning Chuku was floating in the sky pondering the Meaning of Life. In an inspired moment he created Ale. Stop. Before we go any further we must emphatically deny any association with the brewing industry. The Ale created by Chuku was Mother Earth. Perhaps it may be better to use her alternative name Ala to avoid confusion.
With Ala being fabulously fertile, life and creation were off to a fine flourishing start. Chuku was particularly delighted with his humans. In another inspired moment he decided that immortality would be a nice present for them. He decreed that any human dropping dead should be laid to rest on Mother Earth and covered with ashes. Resurrection would then swiftly occur.
Unfortunately, instead of popping down to earth or sending a quick email, Chuku chose to spread the tremendous news by using a messenger sheep. Yes, a sheep. We don’t know why. Probably just woolly thinking.
Of course, the sheep muffed the message and put the word out that dead people should be burned to ashes and covered with Mother Earth. As a result, the human race missed out on immortality and the dead stay dead. We hope the sheep feels very sheepish about this.
To prevent further miscommunication, humans have now been issued with Ofo instant messaging invocation devices.
