I grew up in owerri.Otamiri is a very unique river. Very attractive and dangerously innocent in appearance. Visitors are easily lured by these calm looks of the river that they carelessly step inside either to splash water, fetch water, wash clothes, cars bath etc. But the mystery is that the river can suddenly sweep off someone standing strongly inside it without any rushing waves or noise. Silently someone is swept off and once this happens victim can't be rescued alive. The safety measure with otamiri is if u enter at all stay a few seconds and leave.

If u are a stranger , pls behave like one,don't go to other people's village and behave like u owns the place,Some stupid people will still be going there to bath as if they don't have water in their bathroom, All in the name of smartness.

Very wicked River. One day we were bathing in it when I was a student of FedPoNek and suddenly a very huge Pyton jumped up to 30m above and summersulted down to the River again. We all ran away with great fear.
