Idoma traditional Agaba stool info.

The head of the Idoma kingdom is called Och' Idoma and there are 22 districts and 144 clans in Idoma land. The clans and districts are administered by clan heads and district heads, who are directly under the supervision and control of Och' Idoma, the paramount ruler. He is the spiritual head and custodian of Idoma cultural heritage and deities whose official palace is in Otukpo.

Unlike in some parts of the country, where ascendancy to the throne is strictly limited to members of select royal families, in Idoma, any male Idoma holding a first degree is qualified to be an Ochi' Idoma as long as he is of a sound mind without any disability. The kingship is rotated among the people of the districts and clans when the throne is vacant.
