According to Punch News, Donald recently moved to New York in the United States, but that didn't stop the love struck Tunde from embarking on the trek.

Explaining why he decided to make the selfless journey, Tunde 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."

Donald on the other hand feels Tunde's attention has been unwanted as she already warned him not to embark on the trek.

She stated that she had turned him down on several occasions, but that hasn't deterred him.

“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?”

Upon the completion of the trek, Tunde was received by the Chief Security Officer of the Ahmadu Bello University, Col J.K. Tukur and the protocol office of the Emir of Zaria.
