It’s happening again. We flogged Ufuoma the day before Eke market, today, it’s Akudo. The town crier will beat the village with his noisy gong. The youths will gather at the village square, each one with his cane. Akudo, the palm wine tapper’s wife will be stripped naked and flogged till her thread burns out for any man to lay warmth. Her children will be forced to watch and learn. Otenkwu the hunter will be banished from the village with nothing but his manhood while I would sit here, at the foot of the Iroko, drinking to the cultures of our land.
