‘Bold’ and ‘The Two Officers’, two books authored by veteran Nollywood actor, Victor Edogun, have gone international after being approved by AMAZON, SELAR and the National Education and Research Development Council (NERDC) for the general public as Novels and as English- in-Literature materials for Junior and Senior Secondary Schools nationwide.
The approval means the highly educative and entertaining books are now available for global distribution as Paperbacks, as well as online as digital and E-Books.
Creative people generally traverse the many avenues of literary expression, and Edogun, a Nollywood actor, playwright, architect and author, is no different.
The notable author of published articles and Nollywood screenplays has been enjoying good reviews with his literary works.
‘The Two Officers’, a creative insight into some undercurrents in pervading societal issues follows the story of Superintendent Chioma and Inspector Douglas as they carry out their professional duties as security operatives. The duo cross each other once too often around settings that are brimming with daunting security challenges in contemporary urban Nigeria.
There is a tug between conscientious professionalism on the one hand and covert misconduct cum intentional misrepresentation at another end of a wave crest of drug deals, kidnapping, extortion, and unexpected reprisals.
‘The Two Officers’ is a highly compelling literary and institutional expose that is finely layered and poignantly relatable.
‘Bold’ – a romantic classic and ‘Poetic Experience’ is a catalogue of poems highlighting Nigeria’s democratic hopes and travails.
In the beginning, the Badeye family was a happy one by every standard. They were quite comfortable. After completed studies and working stints in both England and America, the lovely couple had saved and acquired substantial domestic possessions before relocating to Nigeria with their two adorable children, Jimmy 18 and Yvonne 16. Close family relations like Mrs. Ebie, Jones Badeye’s older sister, his eldest brother Ogaga and Elvis, Cordelette’s two freshly married brothers and Tulani her only sister had contributed in no small way in getting them adjusted to their Nigerian heritage, society and environment.
Together, they invited friends, their extended and other family members, attended social gatherings, functions, ceremonies as well as generally spent quality times together whenever the need arose.
As oversees returnees, the Badeyes courted the respect of everyone. It was also of worthy note that while abroad they had related extensively with the Nigerian communities over there. This got them fairly adequately prepared for what they met back home, subsequently. Though, not quite all of it.
As an author, Edogun has proved his mettle with works like ‘Save Today,’ a critically acclaimed novel on terrorism that went viral online in 2013.
