From Lagos to Europe and Back.
So after some hitches with my phone, we finally left home around 07:30 hrs. “We” consists of myself and my EASY RIDERS brethren, who have come to ride with me to the border and wish me a safe trip!
We eventually get to the border, although some of us get separated. I clear all formalities in no time, and it’s time to go! “Bye guys”! And I am off!
Cross over to the Benin side of the border, and the adventure begins! I have already cleared all formalities, but am stopped as I am about to leave the border. I show my papers but the official there says my papers are wrong and that I have to pay to pass him. “No sir, I will not pay. Instead, we can go back to the Customs Post, and I will do the right thing!” So we go back, and he is told that I am ok and should be allowed through! My first ‘mini-adventure’… and so, so early on my trip!
