After The Juju Man
The story is a tragedy of Okafor, a village palm wine tapper, who fell from a palm tree and fractured his leg. Relations carried him miles away, to the home of a witch-doctor, or “Juju-man”. According to some people, this wise and grey-haired old man had mystical powers. After greetings, gifts were presented. The Juju-man examined the injured man, invoked the gods of the land and poured a libation. Then he caught a cock, broke one of its legs and said to Okafor: “The day you see this cock walk, you will walk.”
