ORDER OF KOLANUT BREAKING AND SHARING IN OVIM
In Ovim, the kola is presented to Ohoroho. It is passed to the other villages in this order: Ohonja, Amune, Obayi, and Ameke. Ohonja breaks and shares the kola in this order: Ohoroho, Ohonja, Amune, Obayi and Ameke.
When kola is presented to a group not representative of Ovum, the kola is shared by the youngest fellow.
When wine is presented to Ovum, the Head of the village presenting it takes the first cup. The last cup goes to Obi Ovum who offers the libation.
If wine is presented top a group not representative of Ovum, or if it is Nkwo wine, (Mmai Nkwo) the grandson of the house presenting the wine receives the first cup and offers the libation.
