“Over twenty years ago, we came to Agbara; Gertrude and I and many of our other friends and we met her in her elements. She gave us food and more food and would insist that we should eat even more. She would come to Calabar and would bring us pieces of Agbara. It would come in the shape of rice or yams. She gave us pet names.”
