Chicago, IL, November 03, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- After the arrest of Nigerian terrorist Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab on Dec. 25, 2009, Toyin Ayeni and her fellow Nigerians were horrified to hear the entire nation of Nigeria dismissed as what the author calls a dangerous hotbed of terrorism. Her family in Nigeria found it difficult to travel freely, and some family members chose not to renew their travel visas for fear of harassment. News of internet scams added to the tarnishing of Nigeria’s image. These issues, as well as Nigeria’s impending 50th birthday, spurred Ayeni to write a book to debunk some of the misconceptions about her beloved homeland.
Toyin Ayeni offers up a fascinating portrait of a burgeoning nation. She shares a brief history of the nation as well as an overview of the different ethnic groups found in the country, a list of illustrious Nigerians, and many other fun and interesting facts about this often-overlooked African nation. She offers up a list of common misconceptions and carefully refutes them. Ayeni paints a picture of a rich and varied history and people, leaving the reader wanting to learn more about this diverse nation, and hoping for the best for its future.
I’m a Nigerian, NOT a Terrorist, published by Dog Ear Publishing, was clearly a labor of love for Toyin Ayeni. Her passion for her subject and her love for her country is evident on every page. Ayeni holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology from the University of Ibadan in Nigeria as well as a Master of Science degree in Information Systems Management (MSISM) from Loyola University Chicago. She works as a Project Manager. Ayeni lives in Chicago, Illinois, with her husband and their three children.
