The Last Oda contains graphic accounts of the nefarious activities of various secret fraternities operating in higher institutions in Nigeria. It gives a background on the different fraternities and x-rays the impact of the activities of these fraternities/cults on the life of the average Nigerian youth and the polity in general.
The book also highlights how the influences of these groups are gradually being harnessed by the political and ruling class.
The novel spotlights social life in an average Nigerian higher institution and some pertinent issues within the Nigerian system, especially in the education and social sectors that require urgent attention by the government.
The storyline of Last Oda moves through the bloody and gritty paths that characterize inter-fraternity confrontations and the struggles for supremacy. Interweaving it with innuendoes of the connections between these fraternities and highly placed individuals within the university and the country, who protect and patronize these groups.
The book was motivated by the incessant irrational killings and criminality that has pervaded virtually all higher institutions in Nigeria, with consequent adverse effects on the society. Its main purpose was to educate youngsters, who ignorantly get lured into the fraternities, due to perceived benefits, on the deceit and lies of the organizations. Thus protecting them from harm’s way, as well as reorienting already sworn members to abandon the fraternities.
