Ifeanyi M. Urigwe was born shortly before the outbreak of the Nigerian civil war. He completed his tertiary education in 1990 and left Nigeria for Europe. After migrating European countries for three years in search of better life, Ifeanyi returned to Nigeria in 1993. His return coincided with the much anticipated dawn of democracy which never really happened. As his living conditions in his native country worsened, he was on the run again, this time, to the southern tip of the African continent where he works and lives to this day.
