This is a timeless piece.
Terror, the misuse of power, suppression. It is of all times. One moment it rears its ugly head here. Then it is readily available at another place. Nigeria seems to be a nation with a steady supply of terror, abuse of power, nepotism, bribery, corruption. A promising nation with a vast wealth of mineral resources has had the courage to burn its promises. And soo many people try to have a share of this national cake, legal or illegal. And the biggest cake-eaters still have wide support.
The Nigerian writer Wole Soyinka writes about this terror.
