Diamond In The Rough: 18-year-old Bus Conductor Who Lives Under Oshodi Bridge Emerges Winner Of Chess, Mental Maths

The adage that says “a book should not be judged by its cover”, has played out in the life of a bus conductor Adeoye Fawaz in Lagos.

Fawaz, an 18 year old boy who works as a bus conductor and has spent years of his life under Oshodi bridge emerged as overall champion in both chess and mental maths at a tournament held in Oshodi, Lagos.

The tournament is the brainchild of Chess In Slums Initiative, an organisation dedicated to engaging children and other young people living in slums.

Adeoye had revealed that he wanted to become a comedian and musician but works as a bus conductor now.
