So I will be starting a sketch series called The
Avengers Scavengers: Lagos Most Misunderstood Heroes.
It will be a collection of Lagos officers turned super heroes or super villains depending on how you want to view them. The term scavengers although demeaning is to show the reality of the situation for most of our street officers … low pay, low incentive to work and even lower incentive to be honest … so they end up having to hustle we the people to make ends meet or to live that Nigerian dream.
But in the midst of the craziness there are some hero officers out there making shit happen in Nigeria/Lagos despite the circumstances. Like that LASTMA officer I see at the corner of Golden Gate … from morning to night … he is there not jostling for bribe but actually working even when it rains, he is there. Or that LASTMA officer that stops cars at Awolowo road so that children can pass by safely.
At the end of the day some are heroes … some are scavengers … but all of them are mostly misunderstood.
