Veteran Nollywood actor, playwright and author, Victor Edogun is set to hit the book shelves with another literary work titled ‘Two Officers,’ a creative insight into some undercurrents in pervading societal issues.
In ‘Two Officers’, Superintendent Chioma and Inspector Douglas in carrying out their professional duties as security operatives 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.
‘Two Officers’ is a highly compelling literary and institutional expose that is finely layered and poignantly relatable.
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. He also has works like ‘Bold’ –a romantic classic and ‘Poetic Experience’ –a catalogue of poems highlighting Nigeria’s democratic hopes and travails.
Victor Edogun is also a notable writer of newspaper articles and Nollywood screenplays. A Chartered Architect, Poet and Portraitist, the affable award-winning thespian is set to make another milestone with ‘Two Officers.’
