Welcome to Lagos Paperback / softback
Shortlisted for the RSL Encore Award 2018Five runaways ride the bus from Bayelsa to a better life in a megacity. They are unlikely allies -- a private, a housewife, an officer, a militant and a young girl.
They share a need for escape and a dream for the future.
Soon, they will also share a burden none of them expected, but for now, the five sit quietly with their hopes, as the billboards fly past and shout: Welcome to Lagos.
