On this edition of Channels Book Club, we reviewed two important books by two fascinating Nigerian authors – one is a retired major who tells his version of a high profile murder and the other is a young lawyer who is on a mission to educate and empower Nigerians; on matters of the law and the constitution.

In 1986, one of Nigeria’s leading journalists, Dele Giwa, was killed with a letter bomb. The murder case still remains unresolved till now. Major Debo Bashorun (Rtd) who was one of the core members of the administration of the day published out with a book revealing all that he knows about the murder.

The book is titled, ‘Honour For Sale’.

The good thing about books like ‘Honor For Sale’ is that they can spur others on to write their own sides of the same story and we, the readers, can compare and contrast the narratives. This can help us to get closer to the truth.
