He needs leading Africans to help his cause and Dr Akinye Okigbo, living in exile in London, seems an obvious candidate. For his part, Okigbo sees in Gus the perfect tool to further his political ends – to steal a priceless African artefact, a mask called the Dancing Face, of huge talismanic significance to Africans and held in Britain since the end of the last century, and to use it to make a deal with the Nigerian regime.” IN STOCK FOR IMMEDIATE DESPATCH
