The Ohobo na Umuizu group are brothers. This is a classic case where the same family members sets up two different huge compounds [Ama] family structure. ohobo is the gruop that moved.The word group is used here because Ohobo is made up of all families from Umuizu in contributions and combinations. They cannot inter-mary. They hold the same family meetings. The reason for this movement was to set up an early warning station for the main family in case of any foreign attack, especially during the slave trade. All familes and heads of household agreed, therefore the general contributions .The Ohobo na Umuizu family structure , relationships and ancestors are well put together that we can see and trace and individual like Miss Obiamaraije Anukwa Alozie  back ten(10) generations to her greats.
