But whenever exchange of hot words was going to result in a fight, Dada would try to frighten off his opponent by saying, “Just wait, I’m going to call ojuju” . Ojuju was feared by all children. He was a skillful wrestler and a powerful boxer. Mothers even used his name to quieten children.  Let a child hear “I’ll call Ojuju for you now” and he would try his utmost to hold back his tears.

But one day Dada annoyed two boys James and Bond, so much that they swore to avenge the insult.  “How can a boy insult our father and get away with it? James asked Bond.

Despite Dada’s threat to go to Ojuju so that he should come and teach the boys a lesson, the boys moved threateningly towards him sensing danger, Dada took to his heels.

Dada ran and ran until he got near home. Panting like a hunting dog, he shouted “Ojuju, come out, come out, but there was no reply. In the meantime, James and Bond closed in on him Bond who was ahead, managed to grab Dada, James too came up and dealt the boy a few hard blow on his mouth before he slipped from Bond’s grip and staggered in , protected by his mother who came to the door just in time to see what was happening.
