A concerned Nigerian citizen recently took members of the internet community by surprise with his rather ingenious method of calling the attention of the authorities to some expansive potholes in the Ikeja area of Lagos state.
The man identified as Adedunmade who is also a lawyer by profession, shared a series of photos on popular micro blogging platform, Twitter, in which the potholes were captured alongside some plastic bottles of cola beverages paced by their edges.
Sharing the post, Adedunmade called on his followers to join him in celebrating the lives of the three large dents on the road.
"Please join me in celebrating the life of these 3 wonderful pot holes in front of Zenith Bank, Kudirat Abiola Way, Alausa, Ikeja. They keep getting bigger and deeper everyday," he said.

According to reports Sereno, who was fed up of the several potholes that lined the Kansas City streets, threw a birthday party for a 3-month-old pothole and even went an extra mile by throwing in a slice of cake with a candle on the top.
