From the story in this in book, the people of Amechi kept silent and gullibly believed their priest when everything was not going on well for them in their village after the suspicious death of their King. Amadioha, the gods of Amechi became angry and struck the village with great calamity. One of the Dibia (a Priest) that proffered a solution for them accused them of keeping quiet and allowing evil to prevail in their land. After his explanation, the people of Amechi understood why the calamity in the land not only affected the perpetrators of the felony but also caused Amadioha to strike the entire village of Amechi with calamity.
“Evil will always prevail when good men fail to act,” Dibia Nzegbu told the villager as he was preaching to them.
