"We were then made to pay 70 euros equivalent of N60,000 each, as fines, after which they decided to detain the cars for 48 hours. They are extortionists," he claimed.

Teddy added that aside from the bad experience that the group had at the Mauritania border, the journey gave them delightful memories.

"Apart from the experience that we are talking about at the Mauritanian border, all other countries have been receptive and very nice. Generally, it's been a nice experience.
"Football is so amazing, everywhere we go, and we mention Ghana, they mention Abedi Pele, they mention Essien and Asamoah. In Senegal, we met Diouf at the hotel we stayed in, and he even invited us for lunch the next day, but unfortunately, we were busy with the cars..
