Unoku, Okwonko's father, owed much debt to most of his neighbors. He was lazy and improvident. When he borrowed money, he would spend all of it on wine. Okwonko was ashamed of his father and never liked him.
GIVE US BACK OUR MONEY!!!
I will pay you back as soon as I can!
Why have we been brought to Umuofia?!?!
A daughter of Umuofia was killed by Mbaino. To avoid war, Mbaino gave Umuofia a young girl and boy to replace the death of the woman.
My father did nothing for me, I will achieve everything he didn't!
Okwonko is disappointed that Unoku didn't receive a title when he was alive, he achieved nothing. Because of this, Okwonko inherited nothing from his father, not even a farm.
The boy Mbaino gave Umuofia, Ikemefuna, was put under Okwonko's roof. He grew to like the boy, becoming very fond of him.
If I run away, where would I go?
You are a smart boy, Ikemefuna.
Ikemefuna was scared and tried escaping back to his mother and sister, but failed to do so, 3 times.
