- A man's 'specially designed' okada with a ridiculous long passengers' seat has become an internet sensation
- The okada, unlike normal bikes, can carry 7 passengers plus the rider at once thanks to its abnormally long seat
- Some internet users have argued that the remodelled okada is dangerous for both riders and passengers
Necessity is said to be the mother of innovation, but an okada remodelling has left much to be told and begged the question, 'what spurred this idea?'
In a trending video on the Nigerian social media space, an okada man was spotted with a ridiculous ride that has a long seat.
The okada carries 8 persons altogether
The seat is so long that it can take 7 passengers, including the bike rider, at the same time.

With both feet planted firmly on the ground, the okada rider maintained balance as the passengers boarded the bike till they became 7.
He then zooms off with ease. Legit.ng couldn't ascertain the location of the video as of the time of making this report.

Okada with long seats that can carry persons at once go viral
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported about viral photos of okada with a long seat that can carry 8 persons at once.
Chief among what people asked was, why would a person go that far to make a machine that is meant to carry a maximum of two passengers take eight people?
Tweeps also noted that making body modifications to a bike to handle such without increasing its engine's horsepower to a commensurate level is very unsafe.
Photos shared show that the bike's seat was rebuilt. To give the passengers some relative comfort, a very long leg brace was also made so the passengers do not rest their feet on the machine's silencer.
