Code Wilo tells the story of Nimi Thompson, an aspiring politician who gets a rude awakening when she’s forced to fight for more than the right to save her people. Nimi Thompson is kidnapped during a Pre-Campaign party and after a call from her abductors, it quickly becomes clear to her father—Livinus Thompson that the motive is more personal than just money.
It portrays themes like pre-election violence, politics, and the horrors caused by the powers that be in certain areas of South-South pre-1999 democracy.
