When three university students are killed in a rural town in Nigeria the father of one of the victims hires Phillip Taiwo, a psychologist and expert in crowd behaviour and violence, to investigate the controversial incident, in Lightseekers by Femi Kayode. Through Phillip’s investigation the multitude of socio-political issues in Nigeria, such as poverty, crime, poor infrastructure, failure of leadership, police corruption and outdated legal structures and the lawlessness that accompanies it, are revealed.
