The Use of Modern Communication Technologies in "Oko Aga"
Social events and situations are not static as modern communication technologies continue to witness rapid changes, which afford users better and optimal utilities. Literary writers being part of the society express their views on societal events and situations through the use of modern communication technologies in their works. This paper analyses the use of modern communication technologies in Oko Aga, a novel by Temitọpẹ Olumuyiwa. The study adopts sociological theory of literature and binary theory of complementarity for the analysis. Findings show that, given their quick access to news and information, there are various positive and negative uses of modern communication technologies, most especially the Global System for Mobile Telecommunication (GSM) and computer, by literary writers. The study recommends that the use of modern communication technologies should be increased in the fight against crime and criminality by law enforcement agents in their bid to secure and ensure socio-economic development of the society.
