KoIeosho!I was jolted by Baba's voice "Baba Ewenje I am with you"I said calmly with a sober laden voice. "You are not with me koleosho.I have been waiting for your answers to the 'Awise but didn't hear your reply.I Have told you that this is where we called 'gbekumi'Where death is swallowed.Oya chant these words after me. Biku ba n pa won leworo leworo Ki e ma ka temi mowon Mo jawe orijin e foro gbogbo jinmin Mo ti jawe ahun mu sahun je I was chanting away like my entire life depended on it when Baba Ewenje's daughter ran in with her brother laying lifeless on her arms. Baba quickly stopped incantations and grabbed the little boy.The boy is baba's heir an arole. Everything happen very fast.Baba shifted from one incantations to the other.rubbing one ointment or the other and spitting alligator pepper on the-boy's firmly shut eyes.At last he exclaimed bitterly'Ha Akanni mi!' All hell was let loose.The women agonizing tears sprang into the air.I could not contained myself any longer.The numbers of chaos travailing the land of ikumapayi came back to me.Those fishermen who died at Kutanti river,the hunters killed mysteriously at elegiri forest,the inferno at oja oba and the sudden storm ravaging hamlets all came back rushing at me but wait,is this place not supposed to be called Gbekumi? A place where death is swallowed?Hmm, certainly the journey for solution has just began. To be continued......
