Frustration of disabled tricycle operator



     Some passengers don’t ride with me. They say they don’t want to die early

Kehinde Olaide Akins, a 30-year-old commercial tricycle operator rides with the dexterity of a professional. From afar, nothing whatsoever suggests he is physically challenged. But he is paralysed in the leg.
Over time, Akins, also known as Kenny, has proved that disability does not reside in the body but in the mind. He has shown that disability hardly limits the determined fellow.

Although Kenny lost his legs long before now, he vowed never to go begging, insisting that there is dignity in labour. Kenny is a popular face in Ajah, Lagos, where he resides and plies his trade, as an operator of a commercial tricycle, otherwise known as Keke Marwa.
