Fountain of Betrayal brings to life the Odi massacre, at the dawn of Nigeria’s Third Republic. At the centre of the story is Amatu, a conscientious young man whose search for love and identity steers him to the murky waters of oil politics. Amatu tries to survive the cycle of tragedies that trails him. Set in the Niger Delta, Fountain of Betrayal is an enthralling tale of love, hope, confusion, greed and betrayal that would make the reader laugh and cry. And maybe, cry again.
