By Sefi Atta, read by Anthony Ofoegbu.
In a series of readings for Radio 3's Africa Season, myth is the theme.
The newspapers in Lagos report that assailants are roaming the streets, slapping innocent people on the chest and stealing from their hypnotised victims.
This is Mago.
Terrified of Mago, Fidelis falls victim to a petty theft and must rely on his own imaginative myth-making to get himself out of trouble.
