just like every other 21 year old boy thinking the grass is more greener at the other side, well it really was not how i thought it was.
hello am jerry and am here to tell some of my life story as a son of the soil born proud Nigerian that is also proud of his race and people but hate his government.
my story is no defferent just like so many other who came out from a poor background but i was lucky enough to attend school before i dropt out
due to no money to go further i tried all my best to stay away from trouble and to do that i started learning handwork as a mechanic,
which i did for three years and got freed but had trouble starting my because i had no money for i had to look for other alternative for i started picking irons to rase some funds to buy the things i needed i did this for six mouths and earned some good amount doing it on still i meant a guy,
who told me he has a very big seller that wanted to sell some large amount of coppers to him that he had no money to pay this copper and that he needed me to loan him money that in return after he has sell this copper he would pay me back the money with interest due to the fact that i have gave him money this way before i said okey and gave him 25k after 6hr time he came back to me where i was buy irons from other iron bordders and started crying about how he has finish buying the coppers and started to burn them some guys from the area who saw the smoke came up to him that he had no rights to burn anything in there areal and that he has to claim the copper from them since it now belongs to them due to the fact that my money was at stake i ask him how much this guys demanded from him.
he told me it was another 15k this was the last money i had that i was thinking of adding to the money i first gave him and the interest that i was also expecting i did not know i was being scammed by this guy.
for my money not to lost i gave him the money and he left, after some few hours i did not here from him so i decided to call his phone.
unfortunately his phone was not reachable. to be continued

i was at this point confused for i had no how to reach or his real name including where he leaves, maybe that would have help me to go to the police station to report the case, and the one room apartment i rented was duel and the land i rented and also where i was buying scrabes irons was all in the point to expire.
i was wicked to see all my effort was for nothing, i could not tell anyone about it for i was too ashamed to do so.
after three days of all this misfortune a old friend of my came to pay me a visit and saw how terrible i was and i could not hide it at this point,
so i told him everything so he told me he cant help me, but he was planning to travel to europe and that me being a mechanic that i could make money with my skills over there i did not think twice of his offer and said yes that he can count me in.
mean while after he left i was still trying to fined the guy who has scammed me but he was nowhere to be found, after one week latter this friend of mine called me that i should prepare that we will be leaving the next day morning.
so when he came i only had time to get some few clothes which i took with me for the journey, so that morning we went to bus park that was going to north Nigerian it was really a long drive, but we gut there at night were the bus finally stopped us and we had to look for another ride.
that was going to take us across the border between north Nigeria and niger at this point it was one oclok midnight we also meant other people like us who where all waiting for a car to cross them also so me joined them and after some few minutes of waiting a bus that was carrying some northerners showed up and we entered.
after some few minutes the bus stopped and told us to come down which we did, we had no idea of what was going on or who was directing all the drivers all i know was that i was going to libya.
standing on the side of the road where the bus dropped us off a car showed up and told us that when we get to the border that we should not talk which we did not.
so the car started driving when we gut to the border checkpoint the car stopped and three solders came up to the car and started inspecting in side the car use a flash light pointing to everyones paces.
after much talking with the driver with fulani language, the driver man turn to us and ask us to all donate money which he gave to the solder men then we were asked to drive across the border..... to be continued

after one hour latter the car dropped us in a city called zinden in niger where a small bus again with another set of travellers that was waiting
for us to arrive.
and we were all loaded in this small bus like sardine, we inhaled each other hand pit due to insufficient air.
after some minute of driving the bus stop and we all came down and some and some niger guys with bikes came and we entered three to one bike including all the girl that was travelling as well, the bikers drove as fast as they could to avoid getting caught by the securities in zinden. finally where arrive at a small village house build up with clay sand, at this time it was five am in the morning were we all rested for some hours.
due to the fact that the bikers did not allowed us to take our bags with us we lost some of our food, they insisted that they will be the ones to bring our bags were all our food staffs where in, with this method they took time to select all of our best goodies we bought for the journey to themselfs.
and at nine am some bus came to pick us, this time we were on the drive to agadez but at this point i was scared and curious so i asked my friend how all of the pick and drop off where possible he told me he already payed to a connection man 150k with abeg due to the fact that he want me along with him.
it was a long and dried drive in the mini desert, i call it mini desert because the real one was yet to come.
after much driving in the hot sun the only air that was coming into the vehicle was as hot like blowing dryer, at this time i started regretting coming along with my friend.
and at 1 pm the vehicle stopped in a little village in a house that was fenced we where all scared because the moment we droved in, the gate was closed and some men came and told us to come inside the house and we all did as they told us to, we all sat at the floor after the driver that brought us drove off, we where there for over one hour then the man in charge came up to us and starded calling our names.
as soon as me and my friend name was called they took us out side and does whose name was not called remained inside the room, due to the fact that they money was not enough to continue the journey, as we where a red bus came and all of us outside where asked to get on.
and the vehicle started driving and at 8 pm in the evening the driver turned off his head light to avoid being sported by the agadez police, and he drove as slow as he could still we arrived at another building that was fenced again where we all came down and stretch our legs before the next ride, we meant alot of people in this compound after some few minute four buses came and every one of our gut in and drove to the main city of agadez......... to be continued

after an hour we arrived at the main city of agadez and the driver dropped us off in a house built completely on clay sand and fenced also with it.
entering the compound we meat another set of new people from other african counties, but the sun in agadez on the other hand was unbelievably hot.
do it did not distract some girls that was also on the journey not to do there business, mean while my throat was already sore because of the hot and salty water that was available.
the day before the next journey which was on sunday we were ask to buy all that we needed which was blanket, sox cap, eyeclass, hand glove, 25 gallon and another 5 litres of water, the only 2000naira that was with me i gave it to my friend and he completed it and we bought all that we needed.
staying in a place you dont know any body, you have to be friends with everybody.
finally it was on monday evening at 9 pm came three hilux vehicle and all the waters and bags where first arrange at the back of the hilux aftre the bags were all in the girls where asked to seat on top and the guys seat at the edges surrounding the hilux with our legs rapped around a wooden stike that we can hold not to fall off.
and the jouney to sabah city in libyer began,the hilux droved crazy fast all the time with we at the back holding tight to the stick not to fall off.
this continued till the next day evening which was tuesday at around 10 pm, all do the hilux driver stop once for just 5 minute so we could all drink some water.
but in this stop we spent the night sleeping on the desert sand, the drive contenued very early the next morning with another 5 minute stop so we could drink water, in the evening of it the hilux stopped and we sent the night there and continued with another brand new set of hilux came to pick us up while the other hilux that brought us to this point drove off and wished us good luck.

the journey continued with the normal formation, all bags with food wish was mostly garri, bread, biscuits, powder peak milk, powder tea, cup and spoon,and then the girls on top of the loads and the guys at the edges with our legs around the wooden sticks, but this time the sticks where fix by us, so we had to fix it as solid as we could not to fall off due to the fast speed drive or we will have our selfs to blame.
we normally eat at night before going to sleep and as fast as we could within the 5 minutes giving to us to drink water.
we drived another full day on the desert and when ever the hilux sink or when the road tracks are no more visible the hilux stop and every body comes down and eat or drink water while the driver reduces the air in the tires so it could climb the desert sand and when ever the road track where visible again the same thing happens with every body down and driver pumb more air inside the four tires and then we continued.
each hilux was carring 22 to 25 people, seating so tight and closed to each other for so many hours we where not able to feel our legs or even turn to change possition.
so when ever the hilux stop we where all friends and when it start driving we turn enemies to each other by dragging for space not to fall off while the hilux drive crazy, the more we go further the more the journey became harder and the sun hotter, everyone was crying and scared after seeing graveyards in different places in the desert we where also drinking and wasting our water thinking we were close to sahba, but we never new the worst was to come..........to be continued

If you enter abroad to go and hustle anyhow, be ready to suffer!!!
If you enter abroad to study and practice afterwards, be ready to reap bountiful rewards.
No two ways about it
