Man drove bus from UK to Lagos

Meanwhile, earlier reported that a Nigerian man, Babatunde Tomori, achieved a great feat as he drove a danfo bus from London to Lagos, spending many weeks on the road.

When asked why he embarked on the journey, the man said he wanted to promote Nigeria and show that despite everything happening, it is a good place for those in the diaspora to return to. It was also an opportunity to tick it off his bucket list.
