Uroroh is the most prominent king in one of the villages in the Niger Delta.He had only one daughter named Oke.At 18 years,oke fell in love with a very poor and wayward guy named Ota.he had never attended school in his entire life. He was a full example of no future ambition.now when king Uroroh saw that the princess was posed to disgraced the royal family,he arrested Ota several times and made him took an oath that he would henceforth stop seeing Oke.But Ota soon broke the oath as he was seen with Oke again.King Uroroh decided to get rid of Ota as to end the senseless relationship. He arrested Ota and gave the policemen one million naira to kill him.That night Oke heard that her father has arrested her lover and she quickly went to the police station. The police told her what her father has paid them to do. She asked the police if any remedy.They told her that if she could give them the sum of three million,they would release him.she ran home to search her father's room for the money. Luckily she saw some amount of money under the pillow of her elder brother,the prince.And the prince was sleeping with his head on the pillow. When she saw that no way for her to take the money,she took a cutlass and beheaded her brother and she took the money to the police and Ota was set free.when she got home the palace priest revealed that she was the person who killed the prince. The law is that if a woman commits murder,she would not be put to death but have one part of her body amputated.And so one of her legs was cut off. The police went to one of the prisons and brought a man who has been on a death roll and they shot him dead and wrapped the corpse in mat and so when king uroroh came they showed him the corpse.The king was very happy when he saw the corpse thinking it to be that of Ota.Now Oke and Ota planned to flee to an lsland called Akpor.Any one who is able to flee to this lsland is free from any persecution and prosecusion.Now Oke made Ota to vow and take oath that come rain or sunshine he would marry her. And so Ota vowed under oath to marry Oke.Now the king was told that Oke and Ota are heading to the waterside to enter a boat to flee to Akpor.He quickly loaded his double barrel gun and headed for the waterside to kill Ota. As Ota and Oke were waiting for the boat,a palace maid ran to him and told him that the king is coming to kill him.'what will l do?please do what ever you can to save my life.'he pleaded to the maid.'l will only help you if you promise to marry me,' said the maid.'l Ota vow on this ground under oath to marry you if you saved,'Ota said. Then the maid laid ambush for the king and she hits him from behind with a wood and he fell down and died.Now a palace guard was following the king.He saw what the maid did and he held the maid.But since the law says that any woman who kills any person should not be put to death but have one of her body parts amputated,one of her eyes was gouged out. Now Ota,Oke and the maid succeeded to flee to Akpor.They were welcomed and given accommodation A week later,the king of Akpor called Ota and told him that marrying of two wives is not allowed that he should choose one among the two ladies and send one away.my dear readers who among the two women should he send away?
This is unfortunate and terible.
Well to answer your question.No bachelor or spinster is allowed to live in Akpor. Before going there to live,you must be a couple.And his life could be in great danger if he decides to leave Akpor to another village.
Since it will be very dangerous for Ota to leave Akpor to another village for now,he should be bold enough to choose princess Oke and plead passionately to the maid to go some where else to take refuge pending when the ground would be level for him to leave Akpor to another far away town and marry the maid join the princess to fulfil the oath because if it is not fulfiled he cannot also stay in peace with the princess.He should let the princess know the vow he made that made him to be alive. Since it is said that when there is life,there is hope and time they say heals wound,he should logicaly choose Oke first.Had it been that Oke did not save him from the police, he won't have been alive let alone to have been saved by the maid.
THAT IS WHAT HE CAN DO BECAUSE HE CAN'T PURSUE BOTH OF THEM AND HE CAN'T MARRY BOTH OF THEM IN THAT CITY SO THE BEST THING FOR HIM TO DO IS TO PUT AWAY THE MAID FOR A WHILE AND PLAN HOW TO LEAVE THAT VILLAGE TO ANOTHER VILLAGE WHERE THREE OF THEM CAN ENJOY THEIR MARRIAGE FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIFE.Edited by LAZZYYOUNG1993 / 28 Aug 2015 17:10
