Only In Naija 4 [Photos]

In Nigeria all odd things are very possible. Amusing stuff happens everyday; things that would probably be out of place elsewhere. Not to say the western world doesn't have its own share of oddities but if you've ever lived in Nigeria or grown up there, you's probably be familiar with things like these.

For any Nigerian who grew up in this country, I bet you'd be familiar with some of the things displayed in these series of 'only in Naija pictures.
