Black Gold - Black Scorpion by George S. Boughton

we will aim at everything - even if it is not moving. Black Gold - Black Scorpion recounts the lives of a young oil engineer, his wife and newborn child, during the Biafran War, when they inadvertently lived through one of the worst episodes of African history, experiencing first hand a life to which the international media had no access. Working in an industry that has gone on to pollute massively with oil, theirs is a different story of Africa, oil and aid during a conflict that cost over a million lives. The author also describes the political elites and those, like Ojukwu and Adekunle, who fought them - having himself been captured and detained, one to one, by the mythically ruthless Black Scorpion; this, the strangest of events, enabling him to observe at close range the disintegration of a powerful personality.

More especially, the author's and his family's interaction with the people of the area, the people of Igboland, serves to underline how most of Africa continues to be let down by the pillars of the modern world - political elites, capitalists, the media and warring world powers.
