There was mild pandemonium today in Ikeja, Lagos, as traffic was brought to a standstill and mourners were filmed swinging a casket while noisily attracting attention to themselves.
In the video shared online by Tony Krooz, the mourners can be seen carrying the casket while running and dancing with it as some others played different instruments, like the drum, and sang.
People walking on the street had to run as the mourners approached with the casket.
