History: Ufiaka the Ghost
« on: Jan 02, 2014 »
+1
(This Happened Many Years Ago, Enjoy).
Late in 1994, an 87 year old man died in a
village close to Amai, Kwale, Delta State.
The late man's grandson, Ufiaka, who was
26 years old and fairly educated, was given
some money and asked to travel to Agbor
to buy a fine casket for his grandpa's
burial.
Ufiaka left base early and arrived Agbor in
good time to purchase the casket and
make the return journey same day.
He was fortunate to get an open back
white coloured Peugeot 404 pickup
heading for Amai.
He, however, had to ride in the back of the
pickup with the casket because 2 market
women traveling to Amai were already
seated in front with the driver.
On the journey home, they ran
into a heavy rain storm close to Uronigbe
and Ufiaka quickly opened the casket, laid
himself nicely in the well padded interior,
covered the lid and used the folded
newspaper he had with him to leave a
small opening
between the lid and the main
body of the white casket to
ensure adequate ventilation.
The interior of the casket was
very comfortable and Ufiaka soon fell into
a very deep sleep.
The rain had subsided at the time the
pickup van arrived at Umutu and during a
brief stop there, 2 men traveling to Amai
boarded the vehicle at the back and the
same happened at Obiaruku where a man
and a woman traveling also to Amai
entered the vehicle.
All this while, Ufiaka was enjoying his
beautiful sleep inside the Casket
completely unaware of the new passengers
who boarded at Umutu and Obiaruku.
The pickup van arrived Amai just after 5pm
and the driver, who was now very hungry,
stopped in front of a busy buka to have a
quick bite before proceeding
on to the next village.
The sudden stoppage and reviving of the
pickup's engine woke Ufiaka who then
opened the lid of the casket and rose up.
Trouble then started!
The passengers in the back of
the pickup jumped out of the vehicle from
various points and took to their heels in
various directions.
The people eating in the buka including
the owner and her service girls who saw
the white casket open, and a "ghost" step
out, ran off all over the place, some with
balls of eba and akpu in their hands.
Ufiaka, seeing people running
'helter skelter' was convinced that armed
robbers were operating and decided to
take-off in the
direction 3 of the passengers including the
woman were running.
When the 3 passengers realised that Ufiaka
was running towards them, they increased
their speed and shouted "ghost!
ghost!"ghost! and, to further worsen the
situation, Ufiaka was dressed in
white up and down with white shoes to
match that day.
With the shouting of 'ghost', other people
in their homes came out to see what was
going on and on seeing people running at
high speed all over, they joined in the
race for their dear life and the number just
swelled.
The driver and the 2 market
women were the only people who knew
what was going on and they had a hell of a
time calming the people down and
explaining that he merely needed shelter,
while it was raining.
