Anjuan Simmons, the author of "Minority Tech", visited Lagos, Nigeria in 1999. He was working as an information technology consultant, and he was the technology lead for a team that was deploying CRM software to Halliburton's office in the capital city. While in Lagos, Anjuan met many of the native Nigerians who worked in the office. Several of them took him in as a brother, and they even gave him a Nigerian name: "Nnamdi". Anjuan still maintains friendships with many of the Nigerians he met during that trip to this day.
In light of Anjuan's fond memories of his trip to Nigeria, he fully supports the #BringBackOurGirls campaign. He hopes that the hundreds of kidnapped Nigerian girls are quickly and safely returned to their families.
