My Days in Court: Travails and Hullabaloos in a University (New Edition)

Overview

This book is an upfront, honest documentary of a real life experience of mine. It chronicles the travails and hullabaloos I encountered at Makurdi as a university don. What a difficult, often strange period that became, and what a wonderful story to relate at that in the end! Although I did my best to defend myself, repeatedly seeking refuge in the temple of justice, I found plenty of obstacles along the way. By shedding light on these midcareer problems I faced in this memoir, perhaps the aftermath of the situation would become more favourable to me.

Author Information

Gbolagade Ayoola descended from the royal family of Owus at Orile-Owu in Osun State, Nigeria and has deep ancestral roots in Ibadan, Oyo State, dating back to post-1826 when the allied forces sacked the erstwhile city-state of Owu-Ipole. His great grandfather was Lagbedu, a quintessential warrior and an Olowu of the source, whose progeny also sprouted at Itabaale Olugbode and other locations to become Olubadan at different times in history. Upon their widespread dispersal all over the outside world following a vast conspiratorial plot against the ancient Owu Kingdom in the 19th Century, they have manifested their war fighting traits down the generational lines in the likes of Olusegun Obasanjo, an army General and former President of Nigeria. Thence, there is no naysaying the reality of a warsome blood of the Owus running in the veins of Ayoola, the author of this book who in contemporary times, has chosen the courtroom as a theatre of war to fight it out with the authorities of his workplace, an academic institution outside his own homeland, at which hostility erupted that found him in the eye of the storm for a protracted period; and, much like his ancestors, he survived the hoollabaloos to tell his own story in this memoire, some years afterwards.
