THE VISIT TO LEGUDU RIVER
One of the high points of my readiness to visit the village is the visit to <strong>LEGUDU RIVER. </strong>The visit to that this river is long overdue for me. I had always wanted to see it and confirm the stories I’d heard about it. We are now at the shores of the mystic <strong>LEGUDU RIVER. LEGUDU RIVER</strong> is said to be mystic mainly because of its characteristics, chiefly of which was the possession of healing powers. The river at this time was unusually dry because the harmattan was massive this time.
We were told stories of the river, of which the fascinating of them was the one <strong><em>that portrays the hygienic personality of the river</em></strong>. It is believed that whenever the shores of the river is littered especially if it’s the handiwork of a villager, the river’s image will go to the villagers house to house to inform them and implore them to come clean its shores, if this is done he goes around again to greet them, it is also believed that this same river visits the villagers house to house to greet them during the festive period praying for them to witness more.
WE WERE THEN TOLD TO WASH OUR LEGS AND ARMS WITH THE WATER FOR CLEANSING.
DID WE BELIEVE THE MYSTIC POWER OF LEGUDU RIVER? A story for another day.
