The Oba Asks for a Mountain (a Tale of Nigeria)

In far-off Nigeria, The Oba, a king of great wealth and power, wants it ALL, and expects to get what he wants. And he wants the lands of the Ilesha people. Most people would simply do what he asks, but when he comes up against the wit and humor of three young friends who call these lands home, he may have asked for more than he bargained for.
