VIDEO: Moment Man United legend Patrice Evra visits Oshodi under bridge, plays chess with children

 

 

Patrice Evra, the Manchester United football legend, on Saturday visited the under bridge axis of Oshodi in Lagos.

During the surprise visit, the 40-year-old was seen playing chess with students of Chess in slums Africa.

Chess in slums Africa is a non-profit organisation known for using the game as a framework to promote education and raise champions from low communities.

In one of the video clips, the ex-France international was welcomed by a jubilant crowd, with many of them chanting his name.

He was also seen donning a Yoruba traditional cap with smiles etched on his face.

In a terse post via his Twitter page, the football star expressed his excitement at visiting Nigeria and sharing the unique moments with the children.

“Checkmate. Evra bus stop #Nigeria ! I’m soo impressed by those genius kids @Tunde_OD @burnaboy #ilovethisgame #positive4evra,” he wrote.

Tunde Onakayo, founder of Chess in slums Africa, had earlier teased fans about his visit but did not disclose his name.

The development comes a few weeks after Kevin Tokar, acting Canadian high commissioner to Nigeria, and his team also visited the area.
