A Nigerian man, who claimed to have lived abroad for three decades—nine years in Britain and 21 years in America—shared his story of finding himself under the Oshodi Bridge in Lagos State. In an emotional conversation with journalist Oriyomi Hamzat, the man revealed that he studied Banking and Finance in London, but his life took a challenging turn after a dream where he soared in the sky like an eagle.
In the dream, he felt welcomed to various places, including the Bahamas and London, but it became clearer when he saw signs welcoming him to Africa and eventually Nigeria. Waking up, he discovered himself in Nigeria, and his journey took an unexpected turn.
The man recounted the sale of his house in Akoka, Lagos, allegedly orchestrated by his brother, who had also chased his wife out of the house. Police later found him under the Oshodi bridge, leading him to a six-year stay on a mountain in Ifo, Ogun State. He accused his elder brother of tormenting him and depriving him of his father’s inheritance.
Seeking assistance from Nigerians, he emphasized the passage of time, noting that the child who was five months old when he left abroad is now 43 years old, but unfortunately, the child is unable to provide financial help.
