Okposi Salt Lake
The lake that supplies the brine was discovered almost immediately after the area now known as Okposi Okwu was inhabited. Two hunters (Ekwna Chita and Uta Anoo) discovered the lake and made their finding public when they discovered they could not quench their thirst with what they thought was ordinary water.No matter how crude the method, salt preparation is not a craft but a scientific process. No wonder the ingenuity of the women who process the salt is attributed to the mythical instruction of a god “Mmahi.” The name equally refers to the lake itself. This belief is heightened by the fact that right from the inception of this local industry, the salt producers have been making use of solar energy in an intuitive manner.
