Transcript of Justice in Ibo culture.

By: Will & Austin Justice system in Ibo culture Questions? The Ibo's justice system involves all the members of the community. The role of judges are played by the eqwugwu. These egwugwu are prominent citizens of the village, and are also spirits of ancestors of Nigerian tribes. Egwugwu usually wear mask that are suppose to look terrifying. Ibo's complex justice system Egwugwu were the leaders of the court that were
spirits of ancestors that would decide upon the
righteous judgement of cases. Only cases that could
not be settled would go to this final court. The
egwugwu judgment was not punitive, but simply
based upon making things right for both sides. The egwugwu would be represented by one man from
each village. Though when white people came in
and brought their courts, it was very punitive, judges
could be bribed, and the system was corrupt. How the Igbo justice system was used in

Justice for women in the Ibo culture. There was not alot of justice or anything to really help the women
of the Ibo people. Women were often treated as objects and possesions
of the man. Their responsibility was in their husband and kids which
prevented them from joining any town meetings. The husband would
usually have more then one wife. The wives would also have to do cleaning,
cooking, and minor farm work. There was little to no respect and justice
for women in the Ibo/Igbo culture.
