What it is like to be disabled in Lagos, Nigeria


Mr Abiola AKA ‘Biggie’ was born as a normal child, but got affected by polio at three years old which resulted him not being able to use his legs. But he hasn’t let his condition stop him.

“I wash myself, wash my cloths, everything,” says Biggie

Although he’s confined to a wheelchair, Biggie is a local champion in his area where he works as an agbero, or local money collector.

“This is my area, i can’t beg for money,” Biggie explains.

Biggie lives in Isheri Ogun state and goes all the way to Ikeja, Lagos everyday to work so he can feed his family – his father, wife and son.

“His story is very long, but we thank God he’s alive,” says Biggie’s father

Biggie doesn’t just work, he also finds ways to have fun and unleash his notorious ways – as he hilariously explains:

“If i sell you recharge cards and you don’t pay me, i must sleep with you” says Biggie seriously

Watch BattaBox’s presenter Yetunde bring to you the daily motion of (Biggie)’s life.
