A man related to former Lagos state gubernatorial candidate Jimi Agbaje, decided to go to an extreme length just to prove his love to a woman he has been trying to date for six years.
In a bid to prove his 'undying love' for a lady he has known for about six years who persistently refused to date him, 26-year-old Tunde Agbaje who is a younger cousin to one of the immediate past Lagos state gubernatorial candidates, Jimi Agbaje, decided to do something that would create a lasting impression in his love interest's heart.
According to Punchng, the lady identified as Sharon Donald, happens to be the daughter of a former South-South governor, who recently relocated to New York in the United States of America.
Agbaje said he met Donald in the Ikoyi area of Lagos state about six years ago, and had gone on to become friends with her, but his several attempts to turn her into the leading lady in his life, was met with strong resistance on her part.

Fast forward to 2016, Agbaje decided to prove his love for her once and for all, and embarked on a 19-days long-distance trek from Ketu in Lagos state, to Zaria in Kaduna state.
Speaking about how he met Donald and why he embarked on his long 'love-proving' trek, Agbaje said:
“I was with my friends sometime in 2010 and while we were discussing about ladies, I said I wished God would just show me my wife anytime soon. About five minutes later, we were hungry and I went to get food on Awolowo Road. It was my first day at that eatery. I was waiting to be served when she walked in. Coincidentally, that day was also her first day there. I observed that there was a love image at the back of the trousers she put on.
She approached me and asked what she could buy and I advised her. We later exchanged contacts and became friends. That was how my love for her started growing. We met several times afterwards.”
Agbaje then tried to win her affection and when she constantly refused to date him, he made up his mind to do something that no man had ever done for her. He said:
“I chose to trek to Zaria because her parents dated for six years in ABU, Zaria, before they got married. I didn’t let my parents know and to ensure I was not disturbed, I changed my SIM card. I took a tracker along with me to monitor my movements. I never took a bus at any time. It was a tough task and I even collapsed some of the times. I took off from Ketu on October 2 and arrived in Zaria on Thursday, October 20, around 4.15pm.
I have no regret for what I have done. I have proved my love for her, even though she didn’t reciprocate my feeling. I believe even if she gets married to another person, nobody will ever be able to do what I did for her.”
Meanwhile the young lady, Miss Donald, said Agbaje is a stalker and is also 'sick upstairs'. She said:
“Tunde (Agbaje) has been harassing and stalking me for the past six years and as far as I am concerned, this is just a new escapade in a series of his harassment. I met Tunde at a church when I was living in Lagos and we were both part of the youth ministry. He never had a friendship, let alone a relationship, with me. I was in a music group and some of the youths had my phone number, including him.
He later found out where I lived and came to my house. My mum warned him to leave me alone, but he refused. I changed my phone number and moved to the US, but I don’t know how he got my contact. I have stopped picking calls from Nigeria because of him.
He later called me and said he was going to trek to prove his love for me in a non-violent way and I told him not to do it because he could die. I said that not because I cared, but just for Christian charity. This guy is mentally unstable, because how can you still be stalking a woman who has turned you down for six years?”
Na wa oo! Things we do for love.
