The Ohafia War Dance known in Igbo as "iriagha" is a popular war dance performed in several parts of South Eastern Nigeria, the dance which has its roots from Ohafia in Abia state is performed by a group of muscular men in commemoration of their strength in fighting and winning wars in the past, as history made us to know.

However this special social cultural dancing  group yesterday thrilled the wife of the president of Nigeria, Aisha Buhari, and other guest at the Sam Mbakwe Airport premises, who travelled all the way down to the Eastern Heartland to celebrate this years August meeting with the wife of Imo state governor,Ugonneoma Nkechi Rochas Okorocha.

Their dancing steps overwhelmed the wife of the president, even the wives of state governors who were also in the state, at a point some of them began to take pictures with the war dancers, slaying it without minding their positions.
