The language names are Okpela (Okpella, Ukpella, Upella), Arhe (Atte, Ate), Ivbie North (Ibie). The language classification is Niger-Congo, Atlantic-Congo, Volta-Congo, Benue-Congo, Edoid, North-Central, Ghotuo-Uneme-Yekhee. Okpela is part of two to three dozen Edoid languages spoken in southern Nigeria, predominantly in the former Bendel State. The Edoid group belongs to the Volta-Niger branch of Niger-Congo. The name of the group derives from its most widely spoken member, Edo (5 million native and secondary speakers). Edoid can be divided into four subfamilies: Delta, North-Central, Northwestern, and Southwestern. The writing system is in the Latin script.
