Nicodemously

Posted by David Webb on August 29, 2002

Several English language African newspapers have referred to people acting "Nicodemously". What does this word mean? There is a Nicodemus in the Bible but what he says and does does not readily suggest a meaning. Usage of the word is generally pejorative but occasionally positive. Examples of its use can be found by using an Internet search engine like Google.
