Destination Biafra by Buchi Emecheta
This hard-hitting, fast-moving novel charts the painful birth of the Biafran republic in the late 1960s, and centers around Debbie Ogedembge, the Oxford educated daughter of a corrupt Nigerian government minister. Her conflicting feelings about her role as a traditional Nigerian woman and her wish to take an active part in Biafra's struggles reflect the greater battle happening around her. This is a searing story of conflict between old and new, between different tribes, between male and female, between Nigeria and Biafra.
