MY LUCKY NUMBER 10 by Banke Ogundairo

I have always insisted that Banke, my dear friend of 10 years can make a career out of writing if she took it seriously. When you read this piece where she coincidentally writes about 10 being her lucky number, you will agree with me. She discusses growing up with 9 siblings, the friendship of it…

REPORT; INSIDE NIGERIA’S RUTHLESS HUMAN TRAFFICKING MAFIA
