The town had been ruled by His Royal Highness Eze Akujobi David-Osuagwu the Ezikoche II, since the mid nineties after a protracted tussle following the death of HRH Eze Chris David-Osuagwu (Ezikoche I).Awaka people are predominantly Christians with a large presence of Roman Catholics and Anglican faithfuls who worship at the Holy Trinity Catholic Parish and the Christ's Anglican Church respectively.
