A small but spirited resistance movement has been reawakened in Ibaokuta, led by none other than Ladugba. The resistance, known as Ominira, once stood against the excesses of Balogun Ojuade's reign, liberating the people of Ibaokuta from his tyrannical grip.
However, the movement met its demise with the invasion led by Ajele Agbako and his men. Now, in the face of Odejinmi's oppressive rule and recent hardships, Ladugba has taken it upon himself to reignite the fire of resistance and fight back against injustice.
What makes this tale all the more intriguing is the fact that Ladugba and Odejinmi were once best friends, with Ladugba even serving as the head of trade in the kingdom. With the future of Ibaokuta hanging in the balance, Ladugba has embarked on a courageous journey to do what needs to be done.
Ladugba has not taken his decision lightly. He firmly believes that if Odejinmi is left unchecked, the destruction of Ibaokuta and its people is inevitable. With a heavy heart, he admits to turning his back on his people in the past but vows that it will never happen again. He has rallied former members of the resistance, who have pledged their support to the cause. In preparation for a potentially fierce battle, Ladugba has taken the necessary steps to stockpile weapons, ensuring they are ready to face Odejinmi and his warriors head-on.
The growing momentum
Ladugba's movement is already gaining remarkable ground, with more and more people, including Odejinmi's own guards, defecting to join the resistance. The dissatisfaction with Odejinmi's high-handedness and the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of Adisa, a former patron of the resistance and Odejinmi's father, while imprisoned by Odejinmi himself, has fueled the growing discontent. However, it would be unwise to underestimate Odejinmi, a powerful warrior with a history of emerging victorious from fierce confrontations. This battle won't be a walk in the park for either party, and the outcome remains uncertain.
