The man Perocoma many are not lucky enough to know.
 
Pericomo, a great traditionalist, musician and medicine man, became famous for stopping illegal tax collectors a.k.a agbero boys at upper-iweka Onitsha.
 
He was on his way to onitsha when he was waylaid by agberos who demanded for his tax receipts. He ignored them and they lifted him on their shoulders enroute their office.
 
He jazzed them and refused to come down from their shoulders for hours until they pleaded and made sacrifices to his deity. That singular act instilled fears in the heart of all agberos operating at upper iweka, thereby curtailing their excesses.
