  1. Many thanks, Prof. Thanks for this brilliant and illuminating discussion on Achebe's anticipation of the Igbo genocide as projected in ARROW OF GOD', a book many of us thought that we've read. This should be circulated with passion, and must be archived in our collective and individual memories. Many, many thanks, Prof.
