Praise for Chasing a Mirage

 Chasing a Mirage seems like a fictional story but it is indeed a real life and personal experience of the author's 'journey to and return from hell' which should be read by all.”

Lekan Otufodunrin Editor, Online and Special Publications, The Nation Newspapers

“Osita's experience as documented in this publication reveals the degree to which young Nigerians and indeed other youths from less developed economies can go to in their quest of “bettering their lives”.

Oyebisi Babatunde Oluseyi Executive Director, Nigeria Network of NGOs

 “...a well researched and insightful analysis into the dark world of irregular migration and human trafficking. A must read book for members of the civil society, travelers and the general public.”

Mr. Tony Luka Elumelu Former Head of Protocols Nigerian Immigration Service and Present Head of Migration Desk Ecowas Commission

 “Remarkable! A heartfelt tragic experience of many Nigerians! The Desert journey to overseas has led to nowhere and destroyed many. Osita survived to rescue both life and human resources.”
