Chapter 25?


The District Commissioner arrives at Okonkwo's compound. He leads a small band of soldiers and court messengers. They find Obierika and several other men gathered inside. The DC fiercely asks Okonkwo to step forward. Obierika responds that he is not there. The DC demands that they produce Okonkwo, or they will be thrown into jail. Obierika and the other men mutter amongst themselves, and Obierika says he will take the DC to where Okonkwo is. Perhaps the DC's men can help them. He leads them to a tree behind Okonkwo's compound. Okonkwo has hanged himself.
