b. Religion:
Adazi-Enu people are predominantly Christians with a large number of Roman Catholics. There is also a significant presence of traditional Igbo religion, with many people practicing a blend of both Christian and traditional beliefs. Overall, religion is an important part of life in Adazi-Enu.

c. Economic Activities:
In Anaocha LGA, Adazi-Enu is another thriving center of economic activity, with a diverse range of businesses. The town is well known for its traditional market popularly known as Nkwo Adazi-Enu which sell everything from fresh produce to handmade crafts and others. In addition, there are a number of small-scale producing goods such as palm oil, cassava flour, and others. The town is also home to a number of service-based businesses, including bank, and restaurants. However, agriculture is another important sector of the economy, with many residents growing crops such as yams, cassava, cocoyam, etc. 

Just like Eze-Nnebo of Akwa-Neni clan, Okotu is among the descendants of settlers/migrants from Nri Ancient Kingdom who settled around Agu Ata especially in Igbo Nkwo (Igbo Ukwu, capital of Nri kingdom) presently under Agu Ata known for their smithing economic activities, research infered that they were the earliest smithers of copper and its alloys in West Africa, working the metal through hammering, bending, twisting, and incising. They are likely among the earliest groups of West Africans to employ the lost-wax casting techniques in the production of bronze sculptures in Igbo Nkwo.

When Okotu became of age, he left his father's house in Umona (In Agu-Ata) while searching for a serene environment for settlement, he traveled as far as to settle where he is today (presently in Umuabu village in Adazi-Enu, Okonobi family precisely). Not much is known about the parentage and the siblings of Okotu, it is said that he had four other relatives such as Nnebo and Isuofia. However, along the line, the name Igwulube was the same person or not. If they were the same person, it stands to reason that Okutu gave birth to Adazi-Enu, Ichida, and others. If the reverse was the case, definintely, Okotu begot Igwulube who then birthed Adazienu and others.

Accordingly, oral tradition suggests that Okotu had a son named Igwulube. This son is said to have married two wives namely:

1. Ada and 
2. Ichi (Mgboye)

Ada gave birth to three sons who later become the ancestors of:

1. Adazi-Enu 
2. Adazi-Ani and 
3. Adazi-Nnukwu. 

Ichi’s first son was named 

1. Ichi-Adaa- ‘Ichi has come’ which later curtailed to Ichida, while the second son of Ichi was named:

2. Nwa-Amam-Ichi- ‘Ichi has been favoured with a child,’ shortened to Amichi.

3. Other sons were Ikenga, Ogbodi and Osumenyi.

The sons of Igwulube after coming of age left to establish their own towns. As was customary, the first son lived in the father’s house, as such Adazi-Enu continued to live in their father’s house while Ichida was instructed to move southwards and he put up his home at Isiube which is today the head family in Ichida. Adazi-Ani moved north-westward and settled in the present location. Adazi-Nnukwu moved northwards and came to the location it occupies till date. Amichi too migrated and settled in its present location.

Article Expansion:
Adazi Enu was the head (Isi) Okotu in Okotu family and settled at Umuabu village, however, his first son (Name: Unknown) migrated and settled in the present day Ogweni Ocha village.

Okotu dynasty expanded to up to nine communities (Okotu Teghete). Obeledu was a descendant of a man called Ezike Ugada who hails from Adazi Nnukwu.

Igwulube Okoteghete connotes the nine towns that are descendants of Okotu namely: Adazi Enu, Adazi Ani, Adazi Nnukwu, Ichida, Amichi, Ikenga, Ogbodi, Osumenyi and Obeledu.

During the times of our ancestors, when issues or challenges arise, they'll come together as Igwuribe a.k.a teghete to find solutions to certain problems.

Every first week of August, after harvest of yams, Adazi Enu as the most senior will first of all display yam in the market before his brothers.

Currently Adazi Enu, Adazi Ani and Adazi Nnukwu still maintain the brotheriness by having an Annual Okotu family get together.
