A guy nearly slapped me- Arole recounts experience after dressing like mad man

Nigerian actor and comedian, Woli Arole shocked many when he recently disguised as a mentally challenged man and went into the streets of Lagos to experience how mentally challenged persons are treated in the society.

He shared his weird experiences on his Instagram page. Arole noted that in the midst of roaming about and attempting to talk to some people, a man almost slapped him.

”I went on the street of Lagos dressed like a “Mentally ill” person, I saw the reaction of a lot of people, some people gave me money, some ran away from me, a guy nearly slapped me, then I realized that a lot of people look down on the “Mentally challenged” in the society, which is not too good there’s more we can collectively do in love.
