What he currently does

‘Kunle is the Head of Investigations at HumAngle, a media outfit based in Abuja. This means he leads a team of journalists to deeply report issues surrounding conflict, insecurity, and human rights in Nigeria, focusing especially on how those issues affect ordinary people. It also means, perhaps except when he asks for a leave of absence, he doesn’t really get holidays.
