Igbo information

Also known as Ofor

Holy communication device with wireless capability

An Ofo is a votive object which is pointed at the sky when prayers are offered, particularly to Chuku. After the fiasco of bringing death to the world he really did need a more reliable method of communicating with his creation.

Presumably the Ofo boosts the signal of weak invocations. Think of it as a sort of remote control communication device for O.F.O.s — Omnipotent Flying Objects.

They vary in shape but are something like a staff or wand made of metal or wood. Some of the most impressive look a bit like a steampunk hairbrush made of brass — perfect not only for contacting Heaven but also for singing prayers in front of the bathroom mirror.

Nowadays Ofos are coming back into fashion. But this time they are called ‘smartphones’. Buy the app from the Godchecker Store today!
