Nigeria: the edge of the abyss

Barling, Kurt and Akinrinade, Olusola (1998) Nigeria: the edge of the abyss. The World Today, 54 (7). pp. 200-202.


Even by Nigeria’s standards political events over the
past few months have been extraordinary. With the
death of the head of state, General Sani Abacha,
from a heart attack in June, swiftly followed by the
death of the imprisoned opposition leader Chief
Moshood Abiola in similar circumstances, Nigeria
has been plunged into a crisis as deep as that which
led to the outbreak of civil war in 1967.
