Spectrum Books, 2002 - Biography & Autobiography - 353 pages
An eye-witness account of the events of the period when General Sani Abacha's military junta hunted down its opponents. The author, a western television, radio and print journalist, was abducted in 1995 and subsequently imprisoned for over three years. Her story begins in prison, written illicitly and driven by a sense of personal and moral compunction; and her account is filled out with retrospective interviews and wider perspectives on the human rights issues and knowledge of the international concern she would subsequenly gain abroad. She documents what happened to her personally and her contemporaries, and reflects upon the impact of the terror on Nigerian society at large.
