Nubi, who completed her solo road trip from London, United Kingdom, to Lagos, Nigeria on Sunday was received at the Nigeria-Benin Republic border on behalf of Lagos State Government by the state Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mrs Toke Benson-Awoyinka, and the Special Adviser, Tourism, Arts and Culture, Idris Aregbe.

Pelumi’s latest feat of traveling by road from London to Lagos was inspired by Nigerian biker Kunle Adeyanju who completed same trip for a polio campaign.

“He did it by bike two years ago. I was on the phone with him and mentioned how it was so cool what he did,” Pelumi said.
