Uncle Deyo was Ajumobi’s bossom friend when he was alive. They
usually worked on their farms like twins. After the death of
Ajumobi, he(Deyo) helps Yaremi with difficult chores such as
mending the leaky roof of her house and rebuilding the walls of her
mud house.
Apparently, Deyo is a responsible friend. He takes Alani on a tour
of his fathers farms and tells him what is expected of him as
Ajumobi’s only son. Unlike most men, who would like to take
advantage of the widow of their deceased friend, Uncle Deyo did
not do that nor did he try to covet or possess the landed property
of his friend who had died. He meticulously guided Alani, Ajumobi’s
only son on what is expected of him in life and assisted Ajumobi’s
widow, Yaremi, the best way he could. Indeed a close examination
of the role of uncle Deyo shows that he is a good man and a
trusted friend.

The central character, Bigger Thomas’s trial hinges on judicial
injustice.
The novel tends to depict the aforementioned concept, in the
sense that the judicial system at the time of the novel – 1930’s –
wherein racism, segregation and factionalization reigned
Supreme.
It depicts the inequity of the judicial system with regards to
certain key factors, viz, interest of the media, fair hearing and
the promotion of political ambitions.
(i) Interest of the media: It should be observed that the setting
of the novel shows the high degree of white supremacy. Those in
the corridor of power were highly populated by whites and all the
media – radio and TV stations-were solely controlled by them. In
this regard, the outcome was always going to be on the side of the
supremacists.
(ii) Fair hearing: One Is adjudged to be guilty before being proven
innocent but in the case Bigger Thomas, he was not handed a fair
hearing or a chance to defend himself.
(iii) Political ambitions – The incumbent Attorney General at the
trial who had all “the cards in his pocket” knew he had the
wherewithal to swing the case in his favour, no matter the
emotional plea made by the public defender lawyer.
In summary the novel depicts the struggle of blacks in a supposed
“white-ruled” society.
