HISTORY OF A TERRORIST WILD ELEPHANT IN OHAFIA.The man sitting on top of the elephant is Okorie Nkata Emetu , the killer of the wild elephant.






History is an important aspect of mans existence.
Around July 1966, there was an elephant that was terrorizing Asaga village and other surrounding villages in Ohafia.
This wild elephant became a nightmare to Ohafia as a whole to the extent that every community were sending their strong hunters to kill this satanic wild elephant.

One of the sons of Amaekpu Chief, The Ezeogo , Late Chief Nkata Emetu , called Okorie Nkata Emetu, was sent by the Ezeogo to hunt the wild elephant down.

On the 11th of July , 1966, Okorie Nkata Emetu shot and killed the elephant.
Peace returned to Asaga Village and the other surrounding villages as a result of the killing of the wild elephant.

The man sitting on top of the elephant is Okorie Nkata Emetu , the killer of the wild elephant.

I will stop here for those that knows about this event to educate us more on the stories behind the killing of this wild elephant.

This particular picture use to be in every home in Amaekpu and I think it was the same in other villages.

Now this is for Ndi Uyo compound in Amaekpu:-
Can anybody from Ndi Uyo tell what they know about that elephant jaw that is at the center of Obu Ndi Uyo.
