'

He paused and cleared his throat 'every benefits given to each and every member of the once royal family shall be taken back. The palace guards and maids, the titles, everything. The crown prince, Dike Ikemba is to submit his wives who is going to be given to the newly crowned king to be married to. However, he is only allowed to choose one and pass on the remaining six. And then the gods would choose the seventh one for the newly crowned king. The gods has instructed that the palace be empty within now and the next three days with everything belonging to every member of the once royal family taken along with them. The Lolos now have a decision to either remain with the Igwe or leave him. If the later becomes their decision, then the gods would choose another husband for them. Only the gods are allowed to handle that part. And lastly, even though this is unusual, the Chiefs of the Igwe's regime should resign as new Chiefs would be selected for the new king. This has never happened before and should never happen but that happens to be the message of the gods. I am, but a humble messanger of the gods. Every order is expected to be carried out with expected efficiency. Failure to do all these shall result to death being the repercussion. I take my leave.

'i'm sorry i failed you once again Ngo, i didnt satisfy...'

Lolo quickly covered his mouth with her hands 'dont mention that again Igwe. You've done nothing wrong. I should even be the one apologising. Knowing fully well about your health i still insisted we have sex. I'm so sorry. We're too old for that'

She rested her head on his shoulders and he held her tightly 'i love you Ngo. I love you so much. All i need is for you to reciprocate that feeling. Or are we too old for that too?'

Ngozi laughed loudly and pinched his bulging stomach 'without being told, you ought to know i love and care for you Igwe'

'thanks Lolo'

***
SEVEN DAYS EXPIRED.

Everyone gathered round the palace. Even the crown princesses, being Dike's wives were all around, all dressed in a blue native attire with Dike on a white tux.

The palace compound was full to its brim, with people still standing outside the gate peeping to hear what the Great Dibia had to say.

First of all there was breaking of kolas, exchange of gins and greeting of the ancestors.

The Great Dibia sat in the middle of the palace, white chalks around him as he incantated.

'the spirit of the living gods of our land, i plead that you deliver your message to your servant for everyone is eager to hear you speak. Convey your reasons why the Igwe should vacate the throne today through me. What abominations has caused it oh gods of our land?'

He shook his staff and there was a loud noise.

Then there was silence. The people's heart thumped with anxiety. What was the abomination?

Even Freda was around. But she didnt sit with the Chiefs. She was supposed to be standing but someone was humble enough to send her chair.

'the gods say that kingship should be removed from the Ikemba family' The Great Dibia said and everyone's mouth dropped in shock 'they've been sexual connections between both people that are strongly related by blood in the family. That we all know is a great abomination in our land. The gods are so angry that such a thing would happen with the royal family. Even Dike cannot be crowned king, nor any other member of the family. Royalty is thereby removed from the heads of this family. The Igwe thereby is to submit his crown to the shrine where it would be kept in safety till the next 21days when a new kind would be decided by the gods and crowned'

He paused and cleared his throat 'every benefits given to each and every member of the once royal family shall be taken back. The palace guards and maids, the titles, everything. The crown prince, Dike Ikemba is to submit his wives who is going to be given to the newly crowned king to be married to. However, he is only allowed to choose one and pass on the remaining six.
