The Ewes Wicked King Agorkoli Of Notsie
News Hub Creator
Torgbui Agorkoli was the mythical ruler of Notsie,a town in modern Togo. During his rule,the Ewe people in what Ghana are now and Togo escaped from Notsie to their present lands. He ruled the Ewes with an iron fist and had any person who spoke against him put on trial and inevitably found guilty ,which meant a death sentence. When the Ewe people decided they did not want to suffer under his rule ,they sought a very famous and powerful hunter known as Torgbui Tsali. Tsali agreed to hear their pleas.
During a festive holiday ,it is said that he enchanted the drums to put all the royals and Torgbui Agorkoli to sleep. He then mobilised the citizens to pass through a crevice made in a thick mud wall,resulting in the Ewe people’s freedom from Notsie. While escaping ,Tsali convinced the citizens to walk backwards ,confusing their pursuers. After the Exodus,the Ewe were led by the wise man called Torgbui Ewenya. The word Ewe was taken from their formal leader Torgbui Ewenya.
