It consists of Umuevu, Umuhu & Umuaghara villages, and has its seat of power or headquarters, so to speak, at Nkwo Umuevu, a market in Umuevu after which it was named. Religion: Christianity is the primary religion of the Autonomous Community which also maintains a traditional religion. Worshipping at St Patricks’ Catholic Church, Umuevu and St Theresa’s Catholic Church, Umuhu, Catholics outnumber, by far, any other denomination.
