The Bleeding Iroko
The Bleeding Iroko, though a fictional story, has some elements that are situated in reality of a place. It highlights the Pagan-Christian divide in the late eighteen and early nineteen hundreds among the IGBO people of Eastern Nigeria, West Africa.

The wind of this poisoned atmosphere did not stop in Umuebi village. It spread to other villages around them. The battle
