“Usually, I would fly in, but most times, I wanted to see what West Africa is like and this was an opportunity to do so. In terms of over land travel, there was not enough representation.”

On his part, Nubi’s father, Professor Nubi Gbenga, said:

“We are grateful to God because nobody deserves it other than Him. Whatever has happened is God’s blessings. It is not that we deserve it. Many times, we were scared.”

“For me, I was scared everyday, particularly when she was sleeping, because she was sleeping on the roadside in this tiny car (Peugeot 107). In the desert, she slept by the roadside, and woke up in the morning in a forest.”
