The Oracle has decreed that Ikemefuna must be killed as part of the retribution for the woman killed three years prior in Mbaino. From a Western perspective, this makes little sense. Poor Ikemefuna has no hand in his own fate. This, however, is a different culture. The trade of children and women for crimes between tribes could broker peace. Is this a better alternative to war?
