High School Teacher
Ojiugo is the youngest and the third wife of Okonkwo. Okonkwo's temper causes him to beat her during the Week of Peace, a festival in which any form of violence is prohibited. This is just one of a number of violations Okonkwo is guilty of and which contributes to his exile to Mbanta, his mother's homeland. Ojiugo is also the mother of Nkechi.
