The government of Isoko was in the hands of the council of elders (Ekpako) and Ovie was the traditional title of the head of Isoko clan. Thus, the council met at intervals to discuss important things.
However, there was the village spokesman, Otota and the war commander, Eletu.
Thus, the Odio society of Isoko played a very important role in the socio-political organization and life of the people. The age grade institutions were equally important there.
