Late Chief Nnamani popularly known as Ogwuazu was born in 1948 into the family of Ojiabo Nnamani of the enlarged Umunnamani Nwevu family. Nnamani, who was the last male child of Ojiabo Nnamani was named after his maternal grandfather, Ogbunwochu of Umuogbuokom in Obunegu village.

The ESiRS boss described his late father as a grassroots politician. According to him, at the inception of this democratic rule, his late father was the Chairman of Amechi Idodo/Oruku ward under the All Peoples Party (APP). He won all elections under his leadership. His doggedness in the political campaign ensured that the APP won the chairmanship of Nkanu East Local Government Area with the late Hon. Lazarus Nnaji as the chairman and Fred Ajaegbu as the succeeding councilor of Amechi Idodo/Oruku ward in 1999.

He was a stakeholder in Nkanu East Local Government for many years due to this role.
