KADUNA: A Tale of an African Mafia
by Dr. Ikechukwu Azichukwu

January 1983: The tallest building in Nigeria, the NICOM House, which majestically beautified the commercial city of Lagoss metropolis and linked the Nigerian nation with the rest of the world, was razed by an inferno.

June 1984: Nigerias ex-while transport minister was kidnapped, drugged, and dumped in a diplomatic crate in faraway London for onward cargo transit to Lagos.

April 1996: The most celebrated senator in the history of the Nigerian senate was blown into bits by a car bomb after a vehement opposition of a national economic bill sponsored by the Mafia.

And now, for once in his four years at the presidential office, the president of the most populous black nation on earth prayed to hear from the dreaded director of the all-powerful Kaduna Mafia regarding the upcoming presidential election. When he did not, he was in panic. He feared the worst. And for a good reason!

No government, military or civilian, came to power in Nigeria without the blessing and backing of the Kaduna Mafia, and no government lasted a month longer that had lost that blessing! Such were the enormous powers of the Kaduna Mafiathe invisible governmentthe government that ruled every Nigerian government since the sixties!

So what is its next intrigue? And what is Operation Mafia Magic?
