The Juju Priest

by Ogali A. Ogali

Christian colonisers enter into conflict with the Igbo Juju priest, custodians of African values, in a fictional account of the destructive influence of Western religion on African spiritual and moral life, spanning the arrival of the first missionaries in Nigeria to political independence. Ogali, a long-time prolific and successful writer of popular literature in Nigeria, came to be associated with the Onitsha Market Literature pamphleteers. This work also includes a full introduction which provides some background to the author's work and a snapshot of the history and development of the Onitsha Market Literature movement.
