26 year old Tunde Agbaje, a first cousin to former PDP gubernatorial candidate in Lagos State (Jimi Agbaje), has trekked from Lagos to Zaria.
His reason? He’s in love with one Sharon Donald. Sharon is the daughter of former governor Donald Duke.
To complicate issues, the girl Tunde trekked for is currently residing in New York.
Agbaje said he decided to trek to Zaria to prove his love for Donald, adding that he was on the road for 19 days.
He was received on Friday, October 21, by the Chief Security Officer of the Ahmadu Bello University 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.
According to Agbaje, “I was with my friends sometime in 2010 and while we were discussing about ladies, I said I wished God would just show me my wife anytime soon.
“About five minutes later, we were hungry and I went to get food on Awolowo Road.
“It was my first day at that eatery. I was waiting to be served when she walked in. It was her first day there.
“I observed that there was a love image at the back of the trousers she put on.
“She approached me and asked what she could buy and I advised her. We later exchanged contacts and became friends.
“That was how my love for her started growing. We met several times afterwards.”
Agbaje said some months later, he decided to open up on his feelings for Donald, but she turned him down.
“I chose to trek to Zaria because her parents dated for six years in ABU, Zaria, before they got married.
“I have proved my love for her, even though she didn’t reciprocate my feeling,” Agbaje added.
When our correspondent contacted Donald, she said she knew Agbaje was embarking on the trek.
She said, “Tunde has been harassing and stalking me for the past six years.
“As far as I am concerned, this is just a new escapade in a series of his harassment.
“I met Tunde at a church when I was living in Lagos and we were both part of the youth ministry.
“He never had a friendship, let alone a relationship, with me.
“I was in a music group and some of the youths had my phone number, including him.
“He later found out where I lived and came to my house. My mum warned him to leave me alone, but he refused.
“I changed my phone number and moved to the US, but I don’t know how he got my contact.
“He later called me and said he was going to trek to prove his love for me in a non-violent way.
“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?”
