Nigerian man dresses like Spider-Man, goes around to clean streets & markeplaces

Young Nigerian Man Dresses Like Spider-Man, Goes Around to Clean Streets, Many People Watch Him in Video, A young Nigerian man, Jonathan Olakunle, goes around Osogbo in a Spider-Man outfit as he cleans the streets.

Olakunle revealed that every neighbourhood needs somebody like him. The young man said though he started environmental sanitation in 2004, he began going around sometime later.


Why I dress like Spider-Man

The young man in a BBC Africa interview stated that he decided to work in a Spider-Man outfit because it draws people’s attention to what he is doing.

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.

He taught people

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.

He said:

“We need to stop the belief that we are dirty people. Ther’s so much litter in our society today because there’s no regulation.”

Jonathan said sanitation officials no longer visit people’s homes anymore to see how clean their environments are.
