Guys Get In Here And Checkout The Unthinkable Thing This Guy Did For LoveWe were stunned after the 2015 general election cycle was winding up as Suleiman Hashimu trekked from Lagos to Abuja to congratulate President Muhammadu Buhari.
A few other people took up similar tasks to congratulate their political heroes, and in one case, a group trekked from Abuja to Otuoke in Bayelsa state to thank ex-President Goodluck Jonathan for accepting defeat.
The trekking trend may now be on its way back and is linked to yet another political figure, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the 2015 Lagos governorship election, Mr Jimi Agbaje.
According to Punch, Mr Agbaje’s cousin, 26-year-old Tunde Agbaje, has reportedly trekked from the Ketu area of Lagos State to Zaria in Kaduna State to prove his love for a lady, Sharon Donald.
Ms Donald, 26, is said to be the daughter of a former governor of a state in the South-South and had recently travelled to New York, United States of America.
It was learnt that Agbaje and Donald had met in Ikoyi, Lagos State, and had been friends for the past six years, but she had turned down his marriage proposal several times.
Agbaje said he decided to trek to Zaria to prove his love for Donald, adding that he was on the road for 19 days.
The Lagos State indigene was reportedly received on Friday, October 21, by the Chief Security Officer of the Ahmadu Bello University, Col J.K. Tukur; and the protocol office of the Emir of Zaria.
He was later taken to a hospital where he was reportedly treated for the injuries he sustained during the trek, which was monitored by a GPS tracker.
Agbaje said he met Donald while he was at an eatery with friends sometime in 2010. He proposed to her some months later but she turned him down and even though he persisted, she did not budge so he decided to do “what no man can do for her.”
Agbaje said, concerning the trek, “It was a tough task and I even collapsed some of the times. I took off from Ketu on October 2 and arrived in Zaria on Thursday, October 20, around 4.15pm.
“I have no regret for what I have done. I have proved my love for her, even though she didn’t reciprocate my feeling. I believe even if she gets married to another person, nobody will ever be able to do what I did for her.”
Donald told newsmen that she knew of Agbaje’s love trek but had warned him against it. She said she had never had any relationship with him and described him as a stalker.
“Tunde (Agbaje) has been harassing and stalking me for the past six years and as far as I am concerned, this is just a new escapade in a series of his harassment,” she said, adding, “I told him not to do it because he could die. I said that not because I cared, but just for Christian charity. This guy is mentally unstable, because how can you still be stalking a woman who has turned you down for six years?”
