I was born in Ankpa, a Local Government Area (LGA)of Kogi State in 1986. I hail from Adoka a town in Otukpo Local Government of Benue State located in the Middle Belt Region of Nigeria. It is also the eponymous name of a subgroup of the Idoma people. Otukpo is the headquarters of the Otukpo Local Government Area. It was the headquarters of the former Idoma Province, and remains an important town in Idomaland, an area mainly populated by the Idoma speaking people, though with numerous local dialects spoken in the diverse reaches of Idoma land. Otukpo Idoma language is the umbrella lingua.
Otukpo is popularly called Texas by Idoma's sons and daughters and is the favorite go-to spot during festive seasons and holidays. With a wide variety of hotels and restaurants it has entertainment to suit various needs, including the golf course and various clubs and joints.
