Bishop Walter Chikadibia Mbamara was born to Late Mr. Mathias and Mrs. Joy Mbamara on August 1, 1947, in Owerri – Ezikala in the present Orumba South Local Government Area of Anambra State. A cultured man of God of repute, Walter had his primary education in Owerre- Ezikala. His dream and enthusiasm to have a straight course education was dashed when he lost his father early in life. There was no immediate relative to continue the payment of his school fees and upkeep. He was not deterred as he quickly engaged in petty trading in provisions. Again, this was short-lived due to the Civil War. The ebullient and youthful Walter soon enlisted in the Biafran Army, and fought in the war that lasted from 1967 to 1970.
