"Your Excellency, could you please tell us what you think your responsibilities as representatives of our country are here in Manila? What do you think are the reasons for having a Nigerian embassy in the Philippines? Three of our people have been murdered in cold blood in less than six months with the embassy doing absolutely nothing! How many more Nigerians must be killed before you sit up and ask questions?"
John Igbokwe
Friday, November 16, 1995
To Charge d' Affaires a. i. Mr. Samuel Ajewole
during a meeting on the murder of Nigerian citizens;
inside the Chancery of the Embassy of Nigeria, Manila, Philippines

Table of Contents

A Broken Mission contains 296 pages in seventeen chapters packed with true accounts of heinous murders and malfeasance and the drawn-out campaign to defeat corruption and apathy inside the Embassy of Nigeria in the Philippines. Among the stories in the book is the account of how a dubious Nigerian crony of the embassy forced a three-year old girl to live with her father in a jail house populated by pedophiles; and how the efforts to free the little girl collided with the crusade to seek justice for murdered citizens and reform the Embassy of Nigeria.

A Broken Mission contains the following:
