Short Description: Four men from different corners of Nigerian society find their fates tied to one man: Yinka. Drawn by desperation to leave Nigeria, the men are drawn to Yinka—a self-styled consultant who acts as the front man for a powerful human trafficking syndicate. The men come from distinct corners of Nigeria’s society: Chidi and Donatus—two unemployed graduates; Haruna—a doctor who could not save his ailing mother; and Osahon—a fugitive seeking freedom from his past become entangled in Yinka’s world, as they seek a better life abroad.
‘My Mind Is No Longer Here’ tells the story of Chidi, Donatus, Haruna and Osahon—revealing their desperation that leads them to flee Nigeria. Osahon—a man who is haunted by a dark past, meets Donatus, a graduate obsessed with a single-minded resolve to be better than his father; Haruna, the doctor who could not save his mother and Chidi—an unemployed graduate who wants to become wealthy at any cost, find their worlds entangled with Yinka, the front man for ‘The Organisation,’ Nigeria’s powerful drug and human trafficking syndicate. ‘My Mind Is No Longer Here’ is the story of a nation in the midst of decay, which leaves its citizens prey to unscrupulous vultures. This e-book reveals the story of men willing to risk it all in a bid to chase dreams which are beyond their reach.
