KAI causes accident on Sanitation day

Day before yesterday was the last saturday of the month which in Lagos was supposed to be environmental sanitation day. But it had been announced on news that sanitation would not hold. Despite that, people did not come out and the streets were kind of deserted. However, the paramilitary group know as KAI (Kick Against Indiscipline), stationed between Obanikoro and Savoil bus stop still came out to enforce the rule for people not to go out. 

Ikorodu Road on Sanitation day

They went about placing sticks and tires to block the Ikorodu expressway despite the fact that sanitation had been called off and that some cars had started moving.

Along comes this Lexus driven by a young Naval officer in mufti along the expressway. The man failed to notice the iron rod placed across the road...his car climbs it...it bursts his tyre and the car goes into multiple sommersault!
It eventually came to rest across the BRT lane. Instantly the KAI guys beat a hasty retreat and quickly disappeared from the spot. Fortunately, the driver was unhurt but badly shaken.

Navy colleagues who heard of what happened reacted and attacked the nearby office of KAI. They smashed the windscreen of the KAI truck and set one of the staff's cars on fire. All the KAI personnel had already vamoosed from the scene so the office was empty.

I was able to capture footage of the aftermath of the accident on camera phone...sorry for the bad quality.  

This is not the first time KAI people would be the cause of some crisis. There have been several incidents of which the most recent involved a clash at Yaba market forcing the government to close it down.

Are the KAI guys getting out of hand?

The Cartoonist...3

Whew! What a hiatus! I've been so busy it kept me away from blogging for September! Anyways...I just decided to post this last installment of my old cartoons which as I've said earlier were drawn by crude means(pencil, pen and color pencils then scanned). This set I drew as a parody of some notable Nigerian celebrities as at the time. Well...some are still there in the limelight today. What do you think?
