Another two communities in Imo State, Amurie Omanze and Oboro Amurie in Isu Local Government Area will in January 2024, abrogate the caste systems.

A statement by the Executive Director of Pillars of Hope Africa Initiative (POHAI) Mrs. Chinyere Oge-Kalu said the abolishment of Osu, Ohu, Ume and Diala Caste systems in the communities was a fruit of years of advocacy by the National Human Rights Commission and other nongovernmental agencies

She expressed confidence that more communities, the entire Imo State and Igboland will soon abolish these reprehensible caste systems.

Oge-Kalu commended the traditional rulers and the people of Amurie Ancient Kingdom, comprising of Amurie Omanze and Oboro Amurie in Isu Local Government of Imo State for setting the pace in abolishing Osu, Ohu, Ume and Diala Caste systems in Igboland.
