"When I was riding at night, yes. Because I was really feeling sleepy and dozing off but we couldn’t park in the middle of nowhere so we just had to continue to the border (where we later got hotel) was also scared of animals crossing the roads because they popped out at any given moment then security wise, I was scared but I just kept praying."
Omolara told Legit.ng that the journey was borne purely out of adventure. She said her next plan is to ride to Europe since she likes doing what people think is impossible.
