A funny video of the moment the Black Maria carrying arrested protesters broke down has emerged online. The police van was used to convey the arrested #OccupyLekkiTollGate protesters.
The van has to be pushed by the officials of the LCC before the arrested protesters were eventually transferred into another vehicle.
As expected, the funny incident has generated heated reactions from Nigerians on social media. Below are some of their reactions:
"Black Maria no gree fly like the pigeons of peace!"
"Nothing works in this country"
"Same bad governance we're protesting against, billions of naira has budgeted for these vehicles if we're to investigate."
"Hmm, Van also joins solidarity protest. Nigeria needs cleansing"
"Even BLACK MARIA refused to start, just like the PIGEONS refused to fly."
"Incompetent in everything. Nigerian government and their agents of oppression."
"Failed nation everything always goes wrong about Nigeria"
"This is how prepared our law enforcement agencies are: even the police van is protesting, more than 100 Policemen at the tollgate.Who then is protesting?"
