My eye-opening road trip to Ikot Abasi

Sometime in May, I joined a small group on a day trip to Ikot Abasi, one of the historically rich towns in Akwa Ibom State. It was a most rewarding journey; I learned a lot about Nigeria’s colonial past and slavery history. I recommend the experience to every Nigerian; but in the meantime, these are my takeaways from it.
