During one of Torgbui Amegayibor's expeditions, he saw a cloud of smoke billowing from afar. He traced it to his uncle's village.

 He wondered how his uncle, and his family managed to cross the Aka River because he didn't see any human activity en route to the settlement.
 He asked his uncle, Torgbui Adzomefia, the means by which he got into the forest.
