Strength was a masculine quality among the Ibo. It is primarily among men that strength is measured. Men who fight valiantly in battle, show great strength in wrestling and being feared by other men are concepts of strength. Weakness would be the opposite. Sickness and little wealth would also be considered weaknesses.
