Ogbaruans comprise of the Olu tribe and are one of the 250 ethnic groups that make up the present day Federal Republic of Nigeria. They form an integral part of larger Igbo tribe. Ogbaruans speak a variant of the Igbo language quite different from central Igbo. Ogbaruans inhabit the geographical area known as Ogbaru, (or variously called and spelled as Ogbahu or Ogbasu, due to phonetics and dialectical differences). However, Ogbaru is now the preferred and modernized form of either Ogbahu or Ogbasu. The localities fall within Anambra and Delta States. Contiguous parts of what was once Ogbaru are now within Rivers and Bayelsa States.
