Though the Lagos State Government has tried so much in getting the street urchins, popularly known as Area Boys off the streets, a pocket of them miraculously surfaced at Maryland, in the Ikeja axis of Lagos, few days ago. Unfortunately for Nollywood actor Alex Osifo, he was spotted by this group of people as he relaxed at the back of a yellow coloured taxi, enjoying a ride to Ikeja.
The vehicle was locked in a traffic jam when they recognised him and immediately approached him. The taxi loving actor was shocked as he was immediately hailed and at the same time threatened to co-operate by parting with money. He lost a wad of currency notes as he delivered to them their request under duress, before the taxi was allowed passage. And it all happened in a traffic jam
