Anyway, these kind of stories are not new. They call humans 'awon oke'. A man I am very familiar with was in a boating accident. He happens to be an Ijaw man who grew up in his locality before moving to the south, somewhere in Osun state. So when the boat capsized, every one, except two people drowned. He and the survivor, who wasn't a very good swimmer decided to swim until someone found them. They swam for close to an hour, and it was when the man stopped to rest that he noticed the other man was no longer with him. He told me that most likely his unfortunate companion had gotten tired and simply drowned. Now very worried, he swam on.
He stopped again after about 20 minutes. Where he stoppe at was a spot in the water where there were a cluster of seaweeds, hyacinths and sticks that jutted out from the river. As he rested, he suddenly began to hear the sounds of people conversing beneath the water. Shocked, he decided to listen closer. The voices were laughing and conversing in Yoruba language. Suddenly, there was silence. He now heard one of the voices ask, still in Yoruba, "who is that up there?" Another voice responded "don't mind him. It's one of those earth people (awon oke ile). That is how they like disturbing and interrupting."
They hissed and kept on conversing. The man immediately left the place for them.
He was later resued by a passing speed boat.
The things unseen are more than the things seen, so I am not in anyway moved by this story because even stranger, mindboggling things exist in this life.
