Nigerian biker and Rotarian, Kunle Adeyanju who embarked on a London to Lagos adventure in April this year, has reached his final destination amid jubilation from his fans all over the globe.

Adeyanju, who tagged himself “Lionheart” before commencing the journey, declared that his journey was to create awareness and raise money to kick out polio.

The global celebrity will be assuming office as President of the Rotary Club of Ikoyi Metro in District 9110 on 1st July.

He knew from the onset that the ride would be the ultimate test of human endurance and anything could go wrong. This was what he wrote in his blog: “To make the ride colourful, exciting and impacting, I will be flying a banner on my motorbike all through the ride”. Well that banner, measuring 2ft by 3ft, announced to the world that Adeyanju is a Nigerian. It contains the Nigerian flag at the top of the banner followed by End Polio Now logo and Imagine Rotary theme logo.

Throughout the journey, a social media savvy Kunle carried his teeming and growing followers along by making posts about each stop, adversities faced, as well as challenges people threw at him.

His trip, which covered at least an estimated 12,000 kilometers, took him through France, Spain, Morocco, Senegal, Mali, Ghana, Benin Republic, and Cote d’Ivoire before reaching his final destination, Lagos, Nigeria.

On arrival via the Seme, a settlement on Nigeria’s border with Benin Republic, 30 minutes drive from Badagry in Lagos State, he was treated to a rousing and warm welcome by bikers and his fans who followed his journey.

He was treated to a rousing reception at the Rotary Centre, headquarters of Rotary International District 9110 in Ikeja, Lagos.
