London-Lagos solo driver arrives in Nigeria to a heroic welcome

Pelumi Nubi, the content creator who embarked on a solo road trip from London to Lagos, has arrived in Nigeria to a heroic welcome. Pelumi was received at the Nigeria-Benin Republic border on behalf of Lagos State Government by the Hon Commissioner of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mrs Toke Benson-Awoyinka and the Special Adviser, Tourism, Arts and Culture, Idris Aregbe.

Pelumi Nubi’s second stop was at Badagry from which she headed to Unilag for her homecoming celebration.

Speaking to Channels Television, she said, “I feel so good to be home. Honestly the homecoming has been so amazing, really welcoming.

“Honestly, Nigeria is definitely home to me, so it’s more that amazing. I expected the homecoming, but this has been incredible, so thank you so much, I am really grateful, and I can’t wait for the celebration that is waiting for me at Unilag.”

Nubi, who began the trip on January 31, was involved an accident while on the journey.

In an Instagram post in March, she shared a picture of her now-wrecked car, revealing severe damage to the front bumper and a shattered windscreen.

An accompanying video shows her being carried in an ambulance, with the caption: “Say a prayer for me.”

Pelumi’s father described her safe arrival in Nigeria as “end of anxiety”.
