When army officer Chike Ameobi is ordered to kill innocent civilians, he knows it is time to desert his post. As he travels toward Lagos with Yemi, his junior officer, and into the heart of a political scandal involving Nigeria's education minister, Chike becomes the leader of a new platoon, a band of runaways who share his desire for a different kind of life. Among them is Fineboy, a fighter with a rebel group, desperate to pursue his dream of becoming a radio DJ; Isoken, a 16-year-old girl whose father is thought to have been killed by rebels; and the beautiful Oma, escaping a wealthy, abusive husband.

Full of humor and heart, Welcome to Lagos is a high-spirited novel about aspirations and escape, innocence and corruption. It offers a provocative portrait of contemporary Nigeria that marks the arrival in the United States of an extraordinary young writer.

Loved it - took my a while to get into it but then I was captivated! Great story and incredible to escape into something so different from what I know. I hope I find more by this Author!

Not my speed. I did listen to the whole thing, but primarily because at some point I wad already vested. Might be a good read/listen for others, but didn't put a check in all the boxes for me.

Interesting but didn’t really care for the writing style. Too many details about unimportant things in the story. Ending wasn’t great.
