Read on..

My name is Comrade Osita Osemene.

And I co-authored this book Chasing A Mirage with Yvonne Awosanya-Adefajo.


It all happened this fateful morning..

A day I thought will be the best day of my life.

It was a brilliant morning, the sun was high, the sky was bright, and I was set to leave.

I was prepared to leave this country for good.

I felt a thrill that was bigger than the excitement that coursed through my veins during
my graduation.

The thrilling excitement down my spine was a greater surge than I felt during Christmas as a boy.

This was the beginning of the rest of my life, today was the day I travelled to Yankee!

I thought happily to myself.

Every Nigerian youth looked forward to going to Yankee, the common expressions used to describe the United Kingdom and America.

Jand or Yankee was every Nigerian youth’s proverbial paradise.

A land where the sun rays had the cooling effect of an air-conditioner; where the government listened to its people, and fulfilled all their wishes.

It was a place where life was easy, and jobs were in abundance.

It was not a land of frustration, but a land where dreams actually came true.

I could hardly believe it.

Finally, it was happening to me – I was janding! It's time to go to Yankee!


”Don’t pack too many things,” I had been advised.
“When you get to the UK, you’ll get rid of all these rags,
and get the real clothes you


As a Nigerian with high ambitions I decided to make every move I can to travel abroad, hopefully, I will MAKE IT in abroad, too.

Yes, I did leave Nigeria, but…

…things didn’t go as planned.

All my life, all I had ever wanted to do was travel out of Nigeria, and live a better life. I was the third in a family of six.

My father and mother were both retired teachers, and my father was also a clergyman.

I had had a modest upbringing, my parents had given us the best that they could – an education, a sound upbringing, and I looked forward to a time when I could finally take care of them as they grew older.

But I had gone out to the world with high hopes and aspirations, only to realize that the world was different.

Nigeria was a hard country to survive in, and I had virtually hustled all the way.

Two years fresh out of the university, and having served my country during Youth Service, I mused over how my country had refused to return the favour.

I remembered the hundreds of miles I had to walk to distribute copies of my resumé, and all to no avail.

Jobs in Nigeria were as scarce as water in a desert, and the very few jobs were given to people who were well connected, with long legs and friends in high places.

Unfortunately, I had neither, and I had joined the teeming, desperately seeking unemployed youth.

My preparation for this journey had started months ago, after I realised I was not going to get the job I had always wanted.

I need to start seeking other greener pastures.

How To Travel

My dream was to arrive, by my 30th birthday, in a country of freedom, and I had decided I would get there.

I knew of course that the streets of London were not paved with gold, but I would work hard.

I was a survivor, all through my life I always had a way of surviving, even when things were tough. This was not any different.

I have heard Nigerians traveled abroad with nothing but the clothes on their back, and they returned with cars, money and a fortune.

I had nothing to my name, no money, no job, but I had all I needed - my green ticket and a stamped entry – a chance to prove to the world that I had what it took.


I have heard Nigerians traveled abroad
with nothing but the clothes on
their back, and they returned
with cars, money and a fortune.”

If I put in half the work I had done in Nigeria into knocking on doors along the streets of London, I knew I’d make remarkable progress.

”You go late o! Time don go!” A voice jerked me back to reality. It was Andy.

I had been staring at the mirror, looking back at the reflection of a clean shaven athletic 5’9 built young man.

I was looking right into the face of a man who was about to travel abroad!

"I dey come, jare," I yelled back and I hurried out of my room.

As I sat in the cab with my friends, Andy and Jimi, heading to Murtala Mohammed Airport, I stared at the

roads, in silence.

The taxi pulled to a stop as traffic built up ahead. I was saying goodbye to the only life I had ever known, about to embrace a new one, but I had no regrets whatsoever; I was not going to miss anything in this country.

What was there to miss?

In a country filled with hardship, what was there to miss?

In a country where you labor so hard, but at the end of the month your account balance does not reflect your hard work, what is there to miss?

A country where there is no job after submitting resume for years, what is there to miss?

I want to travel out.

I am on my way to Yankee!


I am already about to board the plane to Paradise.

But little did I know I'm about to face the most gruesome experience in my entire life.

Maybe a couple more? 

But here’s the truth; you will be getting the downloadable PDF eBook today for just N2,000.

Yes, N2,000 only.

Considering the honest fact that it’s going to save you over 1.2million naira you would have spent if you had gotten scammed by fake agents.


So all you pay today is N2,000.


Here’s the reason why I’m giving all my experience to you for just N2,000.

2 Reasons;

Aside the fact that I didn’t write this book to make profit, I wrote it to save lives.

Every night when I go to bed, I could still hear the drumming, the wailing, weeping and the distant sweeping sound of sand as a desert storm began.

I heard the piercing screams from Nigerians dying in Libya & desert, it was starting all over again.

I want to put a stop to these.

And two, you are getting this book for just N2,000 because I don’t want you to go through the same near-death experience we went through.

The threat of jail at the Embassy airport & the near-death experience at the Ocean of Spain all in the name of “traveling abroad.”

I don’t want you to go through the same.

I don’t want you to lose your hard-earned savings to fraudulent and scam travel agents.

I don’t want any of your brothers, sisters or loved ones planning to travel abroad to lose their lives just because they have no idea what to expect on the other side, or how to avoid being a victim.

So I ask, if you get your copy today & it helped save you a lot, will the N2,000 be worth it?

I DRANK my own urine, and we even begged women in the desert to let us drink their pee just so we can survive the trip in the desert.

I have been interviewed on Newspaper editorial because of this book.

I have been interviewed on Radio & popular TV Networks like Channel TV because of this book.

I am among the lucky few people alive today to tell their stories.

If I could rescue four people, and bring them back home, then just imagine what would happen if every Nigerian joins hands to stop this illegal and inhumane act, and stop the blood of our people from running freely in the desert.

This book is a MUST read.

I pray you make the right decision today.
