Ofeke is the wrestling champion of his village, Akiyi. Although he has never gone on any hunting expedition, his pride and ambition push him to hunt in the dreaded forest of the gods at his mother’s village, Umueri. The Umueri elders warn him against this, but to no avail. Ofeke encounters the rage of the gods, who teach him a bitter lesson. This story dramatises the ageless maxim that, the voice of elders is the voice of wisdom. It also reminds us that, inordinate ambition and pride constitute the highways to self-destruction.
