There is never a day like the last with Ibiene; she always takes the next challenge a notch higher. Her ‘Nigerian and common man’ identity, however, is not lost here. Inspector Dagogo is a collection of short stories that reflect the realities of everyday Nigerians. As a result of the years she lived in Nigeria, she understands and knows this life completely. In fact, she enjoys writing about the ordinary lives of people who take each day as it comes.  Her books are also reflective of society, more specifically Nigerian society. Their purpose is to serve as a mirror through which society can observe itself.

A thorough and thoughtful writer, IB leaves nothing out of her writing as she leaves no turn unstoned. A host of themes are addressed in her works, including history, politics, family, and love. In addition, as a thoughtful writer, she strives for a rich and beautiful composition by painting her pictures from different perspectives. All these, importantly, she maintains in Inspector Dagogo. This is Ibiene’s finest work of literature, yet. It is an excellent book that will keep you interested until the very end.  Her other works of literature include Loving Gladys (2020), and Yardsale (2013). She also writes about theology and the issues surrounding the modern-day church on the theology blog, No Continuing City.
