The white man came to Nigeria and found it difficult to have total control over the Igbos due to their system of governance and also because of their tradition.
So what they did was to put fear in them and make most of them drop their religion and their belief.
One of the things they did was to make some of the Igbo people drop their religion.
The ancient Igbos had no place for Satan in their beliefs, so the colonists tried to convince them that the Devil is the same as Ekwensu.
And they succeeded in their lies. They made the Igbos see everything about themselves as bad.
Ekwensu in the old Igbo tradition was one of the sons of the creator, Chukwu okike Abiama. Ekwensu was the god of war and Bargains, who was one of the highest Arusi (deity) of the ancient Igbos.
During the war in ancient times, the Igbos invoked him when they needed plans to outsmart their opponents.

He was a very aggressive and violent god (just like the Greek god of war, kratos).
Ekwensu is not the devil or Satan as the white men have made people believe.
The ancient Igbo believed in Chukwu Okike Abiama, who is seen as the supreme creator, who had children that were gods.
What the white men did, till today has been effective.
Only a few people remember their Igbo traditions. There are still many things that we have abandoned to take up their culture.
The white wedding was never our tradition. It is the tradition of the white people.
And today, we value their tradition ahead of our own tradition.
