INTRODUCTION Christianity, like every other religion, carries with it certain cultural imperatives. The terms "religion and culture" are often used in a rather confusing manner. Some use the two terms as if they were two sides of the same coin: that is, in contexts that suggest that religion is one half of a whole and culture the other half. Others use the two terms in a way that suggests an opinion that one could be interchanged with for the other; in other words, that religion and culture mean one and the same thing. Admittedly, Religion and Culture are related in a special way which is not easily discernible without a close examination. But it is hardly the case that any of the above understandings of religion and culture is exactly correct. The two terms can neither be used interchangeably nor can they be regarded as two parts of a single thing, rather one - that is religion is part of the other - culture.
Studies on Esiaba Irobi's Nwokedi and Cemetery Road have largely focused on the portrayal of politicians in modern societies. The studies have however neglected how linguistic metaphors have been utilised in realising ideologies. This is the gap the present study is set to fill using extracts from Nwokedi and Cemetery Road, which were analysed using insights from George Lakoff and Mark Johnson’s Conceptual Metaphor Theory and Teun Van Dijk's Theory of Ideology. The texts were subjected to quantitative analysis through the use of tables, frequency counts, and histograms. Five conceptual mappings: POLITICS IS A CONFLICT, POLITICS IS A SMALL CHILD, CHANGE IS A DIFFICULT PATH, POLITICS IS A BUILDING, and POLITICS IS A BODY, were observed from the linguistic metaphors, and their linguistic patterns, (lexical, morphological, and syntactical patterns), which project three ideologies: liberalism, progressivism, and radicalism. POLITICS IS A CONFLICT, and POLITICS IS A SMALL CHILD conceptual mappings are associated with liberalism, CHANGE IS A DIFFICULT PATH is associated with progressivism, while POLITICS IS A BUILDING, and POLITICS IS A BODY relate to radicalism. Thus, cross-domain mappings in Nwokedi and Cemetery Road, deployed through linguistic metaphors are motivated by the playwright’s ideological representation of Nwokedi and Mazeli as liberal, progressive, and radical ideologists.

In religious terms, divinity or godhead is the state of things that come from a supernatural power or deity, such as a god, Supreme Being, creator deity, or spirits, and are therefore regarded as sacred and holy. Avenging for divinity at the other hand is the act of seeking revenge or inflicting harm on a giving individual, group of people or institution on behalf of a given supernatural being.
