Since the 17th century the location of present-day Enugu has been inhabited by the Nike (/ niːˈkeɪ/ nee-KAY ) subgroup of the Igbo people ; one of Enugu's neighbourhoods still retains the village's old name Ogui. In 1900 the Southern Nigeria Protectorate was established by the colonial administration of the British Empire . The discovery of coal by the colonialists led to the building of the Eastern Line railway to carry coal from the inland city to the port of Port Harcourt , a city created for this purpose located 151 miles (243 km) south [11] of what was called Enugu Coal Camp. Enugu was then renamed simply Enugu and developed as one of the few cities in West Africa created from European contact. By 1958 Enugu had over 8,000 coal miners. As of 2005 there are no significant coal mining activities left in the city.

Enugu became the capital of the

Eastern Region after Nigeria's independence in 1960; a succession of territorial adjustments in 1967, 1976 and 1991 led to Enugu becoming the capital of what is now Enugu State. On 30 May 1967 Enugu was declared the capital of the short-lived Republic of Biafra ; for this Enugu is known as the "capital of Igboland ." After Enugu was captured by the Nigerian armed forces, the Biafran capital was moved to


Industries in the city include the urban market and bottling industries. Enugu is also one of the filming locations for directors of the Nigerian movie industry, dubbed "Nollywood". Enugu's main airport is the Akanu Ibiam International Airport. The main educational establishment in the city is the Enugu campus of the University of Nigeria based in Nsukka , a town north of Enugu and in the same state

The first settlement in the Enugu area was the small Nike village of Ogui, which was present since the era of the

Atlantic Slave Trade . [1] Nike in the Igbo language means "with strength or power." [2] It was through slave raiding that the Nike people acquired most of their lands, which were mostly unsettled. The Nike used slaves for a defence strategy, placing slave camps at the edge of their territories so that it was harder for an enemy to access the free born. [12] The Nike people were allied to the Aro people who formed the Aro Confederacy (1690-1901) [13] which was an Igbo organisation that controlled slave trading in the Enugu area. [14] Along with the Aro people who came to trade from Arochukwu in the south were the Hausa people who came to trade from the north. The Hausa traders provided horses to the Nike which were used for rituals by the Igbo. Both the Aro and Hausa migrated back and forth to what is now the city of Enugu and were considered foreigners to the area

The indigenous people of Enugu include the Ogui Nike who live in the areas surrounding Hotel Presidential, Obiagu, Ama-Igbo, Ihewuzi and Onu-Asata. Other groups include the Awkunanaw people, who live mainly in the Achara Layout and Uwani areas. The Enugwu Ngwo people live in Hilltop on the west of the city with their farm lands sprawling all over the valley. Other Nike people live around the Abakpa, Iji-Nike, and Emene areas of the city. [76][77][78] Most of the non-indigenous people of Enugu are migrants from other parts of the Igbo cultural area . After the majority Igbo, the Yoruba people are another significant ethnic group found present in Enugu; other groups include the

Hausa, Kanuri, Ijaw, and Fulani people .

What is the best Christmas gift you've ever given?

In October of 2008, 6 weeks after my daughter's 19th birthday, she was diagnosed with stage 3b lymphoma. We knew there were going to be a lot of hospital stays and indeed, there were many times she'd spend anywhere from 3 days to a week or more in hospital. That Christmas, I bought my baby girl
