The okpara of Agbor Alidinma. Clifford okoh Iwelunmor is my maternal grandfather. Agbor Alidinma is located in Delta state Nigeria. 'OKPARA' is the oldest man in the village which makes him the(OKPARA). As the oldest man, he rules the people in terms of settlement of any issues and traditional disputes. The OKPARA is a world war two veteran and he has his home in Ekuku Agbor a town not far away from where he was born. Beside being a veteran, he was also a trained phamarcist and served his community as one. when he came back home from war he married his beautiful wife my grandma Ejime who was a business woman, they had ten children... Today, they have 30 grand children and also have 8 great grand children. I said we are great large family? but we are loving it!! lovely siblings.

In the past 15 years we have had reunions at christmas easter and weddings. Grand dad and grand mum have been able to give me names in my research. I am not able to say much about my dads family as he died when i was very young. i hope to do so soon. I know he was a great man.
