In his words:

“I’m not happy with the way I see waste littering everywhere, it has become our normal way of life and which isn’t supposed to be our way of life.”

The Nigerian Spider-Man as he is popularly called added that he hates dirty environments so much. When he was cleaning in mufti, it was hard to convince people to join him in the exercise.

In a part of his video interview, the man carried a woman’s baby as he lectured people on the need to keep their environment clean.
