Ikemefuna . .

1900 - 1915

Ikemefuna was a fifteen-year-old boy from a neighboring clan, Mbaino, who is given up to Umuofia as a sacrifice for killing one of the women of Umuofia. He lived with Okonkwo’s family for three years before the elders ordered him to be killed. In those three years, he grew very close to Okonkwo's family, especially Nwoye.
