  • Hmmm
  • Before Ewuare became Oba, the young man lived deep in the forest to escape the people who had killed his father. So, he camped for a long time with his friends, and slept in secret places to hide from his enemies.
  • Phew!
  • One night Ewuare fell asleep under a large tree. He awoke when he felt liquid drip on his face. A leopard in the tree above him was eating.
  • Horrified, Ewuare then looked down and discovered that he was sleeping on a huge, coiled viper [snake].
  • Ewuare, quietly ran away from both the leopard and viper. Ewuare felt very fortunate and began to see his escape as a sign.
  • The Edo people believe that a viper is lucky, and it did, in fact, bring good luck to Ewuare, because he soon became an Oba.
  • The Edo people also say that a leopard is like a king of the jungle, which is why the leopard is a symbol for the Oba.
