Nigerian Death Legends
Come Alive in ‘the Walking Dead’
The world of the traditional Igbo society of Nigeria is a world in
which the dead visit and interact easily with the living. It is also a world in which most of the time the living are at the mercy of the gods.
When 15-year-old Osondu goes missing, his mother searches for her son and faces the same fate. Now they are both missing. There is a thin line dividing the land of the living and the land of the dead, so thin that spirits from both lands coexist. And sometimes in the story, it is difficult to differentiate between the living and the dead. Both have bodies, with the living existing in their bodies, while the dead use borrowed bodies.
Legend of the Walking Dead: Igbo Mythologies is a fascinating journey into the mysteries of life and death of the Igbos. The book draws readers into the Igbo people’s ancient and traditional beliefs of life and death. You will be enthralled.
