Eveshorhema Samuel-Alli and Ibukunoluwa Oladeinde are two students of Doregos Private Academy, Ipaja, Lagos, who carried out research on African walnut (Coula edulis), a member of the tree nut family common in Nigeria. At the end, they discovered that apart from its cancer-fighting properties, rare antioxidants, benefits for the heart and circulatory system, weight control, improved reproductive health in men, brain health and diabetes, walnut could also cure bad breath.

They represented Nigeria in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair held in Los Angeles, USA and the special award on their Project titled Walnut: Sustainable Solution to Halitosis.
