Outrage By Ogochukwu Promise
Outrage is a story of struggle; the conflicts which have become associated with the exploration of oil in the Niger Delta are carefully blended with a love story, that of Boma and Sekibo, a factional leader of the Niger Delta militants. Boma is torn between her love for Sekibo and her loyalty to Reverend Tabore, her aunty and guardian, who is a government stooge. The constant conflicts in the story spring up from the clashes between the various militant factions, the differences between the militants and the government, and the dilemma of choosing between love and family ties.
