Osawa

by Micha F. Lindemans
The sky god of the Ekoi people (southeastern Nigeria/Cameroon). One day Osawa sent a frog to mankind with the message that death would be the end of all things. At the same time, he sent a duck with the message that they should arise from the dead. Unfortunately, only the frog's message got through because the duck was beguiled by palm oil. Osawa's message of hope was therefore not heard by the people.
