Bode is an old student of the institution he met on a bus. They happened to have chatted and exchanged contacts during that short interaction on the bus.

Stephen said he rang Bode and pleaded if he could stay in his place temporarily.

According to him, the kind schoolmate didn't hesitate in giving consent and would accommodate him for the next 3 months.

18 years later, he ran into Bode at a summit and gifted him N1 million (R36k) in appreciation of the kind gesture back in school.
