In “Things Fall Apart” by Chinua Achebe, Okonkwo is told through Ogbuefi Ezeudu that the Oracle has decreed that Ikemefuna be killed. Ezeudu also cautions Okonkwo not to be at all involved in Ikemefuna’s death, but Okonkwo disregards this warning out of pride, insecurity and fear of how his people might perceive him: “He heard Ikemefuna cry, “My father, they have killed me!” as he ran towards him. Dazed with fear, Okonkwo drew his matchet and cut him down. He was afraid of being thought weak.”
