Short Description: The history of the conquest of the old Northern Region of Nigeria by the British colonial forces is not complete without the story of resistance to foreign domination in Keffi, a town made famous by the murder of its first British Resident, Captain Moloney, by the intrepid warrior, Magaji Dan Yamusa, in 1902. This triggered off a chain of events which culminated in the fall of Zaria, Kano, Katsina, Yobe and Sokoto to the British by the force of arms.
Embrace of a Leper relives this historic encounter, pitching the major dramatic personae in a titanic battle for supremacy. Mr. Ogezi handles his subject with unusual dramatic dexterity and candour, bereft of prejudice.
After over three decades in a land that has witnessed his tears and triumphs, Mr. Ogezi in this latest creative offering, pays a moving tribute.
