|The story is about an old blacksmith named Iyiola who did much havoc (educationally) to his two children through his ignorance. This family was a stranger in a village called Adegun which was blessed with coal deposit. Formal education was introduced to Adegun very late and when it finally came, the socio-economic state of the village was transformed by a three-man team of its brilliant and successful first set of graduates.
With their education, these youth succeeded in touching the lives of their people positively. However, due to greed and unguarded social lifestyle, they ended up denting the social values of the same community as laid down by their elders. This resulted in a face-off between the elders and the three, a situation which led to a total lawlessness among the entire youths in the community.
The situation was however brought under control by Iyiola’s son who chose rather to be obedient to authorities and to God.
