Physically challenged man hustling hard in Lagos shares his story

A 35-year-old physically challenged Nigerian man has shared a moving story about how he works two tough jobs in Lagos after swearing not to beg because of his condition.

The married man and father of two identified as Sani Labaran, aka Sani Abacha, cannot stand on his two feet but he fends for himself and family by driving a tricycle a.k.a ‘Keke Napep’ and also by controlling traffic in Lagos.
He shared his story with Humans of Lagos. Read what they wrote below:

I have been in Lagos for the past fifteen years. I was a bicycle repairer before then and came here to hustle.
Due to my decision not to beg, I started controlling traffic. I’ve worked around Guiness road, Toyin Street, Olowu and Eko Idumota. Some people give me money when they see me working.
I have been disabled for as long as I can remember. If I wasn’t, I would have loved to be a soldier. But with things being this way, I still struggle to survive.
I have a wife and two children who are in Zamfara with my parents. Asides helping the community to manage the traffic, I also drive a Maruwa. It is not mine so I pay N1500 to the owner from the 3K or N3500 I make daily. What is left after fueling it is what I take home.
I dream of owning a Maruwa and be empowered someday. My name is Sani Labaran, my friends call me Sani Abacha. I am 35 years old and come from Gumi local government area of Zamfara.
This is my story.
