a motorcycle taxi that is used to carry one passenger. In Nigeria, it can be used to carry more than one passenger, sometimes up to four. As the need arises.

This year, it seems the Nigerian government is determined to take some steps to reduce traffic accidents occasioned by okadas.

Rivers State has banned them entirely.
Lagos state has ordered that okada riders and passengers wear crash helmets.
This has resulted in a high demand for crash helmets and the resultant increase in its cost.
Due to helmet scarcity, Musa had to make do with ....... an empty paint bucket.

Can this be the most popular Nigerian picture this year?
Who took the picture?
