The Kingdom of Kala Ogoloma is the sub-clan of Ogoloma-speaking people of Okrika Nation in the land that has now become Port Harcourt City of Rivers State.
The creation of this Kingdom and the subsequent coronation of Idikisime-Olunwa JP on October 14, 2017 as the King by His Majesty, the Amanyanabo of Ancient Ogoloma, King E.T.I. Obudibo (Ikwo V), was a major leap for the Okrika nation to reclaim its pride of place in Rivers State.
