Land of the Naked Dance is a powerful story of greed, corruption, and betrayal.
Heavily armed military personnel ordered to shoot and kill violators of the imposed mandatory curfew patrolled the streets. The fate of Agbonta Okilo, the first indigenous president of the nation of Agborvia, hangs in the balance.
On a night when many things were not known, residents of the small village of Kanu, Agbonta's birthplace, gathered at the square, and recalled the remarkable life journey that led Agbonta to the highest pinnacle of political power.
Pius and Akara Okilo, Agbonta's parents, had been married for over ten years but the union was not blessed with a child. Many people in the village believed that Akara had offended the gods, and gave up hope that she would ever bear a child.
Akara's all-consuming quest to prove to everyone that her life was also blessed by the gods led her to the altars of medicine men in and around the surrounding villages.
After a decade long failure to find the answer for her barren womb, Akara's desperation led her on the most surprising journey of all.
Akara went to the altar of the weakest medicine man in the village, Moses Ododo.
Did her visit to the altar of the weak medicine man lead to success?
On a harrowing and tragic night Agbonta arrived in the world.
Agbonta's unlikely birth began a remarkable life journey that took him from the small village of Kanu to London, and in the latter years engaged in a great fight for power in the increasingly chaotic and violent world of Agborvia's post independent life that threatened to destroy him and his young nation.
