Ibadan kids spend new year at the escalator at Shoprite Ibadan

Writing this with a straight face. According to a LIB reader who sent in the photo, he said the pic was taken yesterday at Heritage Mall in Ibadan. The kids came to the mall with their guardians to spend the New Year but ended up spending most part of their visit at the mall's escalator. He said the kids were initially so scared of the elevator, but when they finally got to use it, they loved it and took turns going up and down the elevator...from dawn till dusk. He said there was actually a queue and a lot of argument about who goes first. Like I said, I wrote this with a straight face. Let the kids enjoy...:-)

Things are getting better. A lot of adults still are afraid of escalators. I'm glad there's 1 in IBD. I know God will bless enough to put 1 in my villa so that the kids can enjoy too.

Who sent this to you Linda ? The individual is full of mischief. Yes I agree the picture is real but when it happened the kids had just finished watching a film and were leaving with their parents and guardians. If the kids were on the escalator through out then nothing else was happening at the mall. I was there and saw what was happening.

Shoprite Ibadan doesn' even have escalator, the building is simply linked with 'Mr Price' which has the escalator. Na Mr. Price which is where their movie theatre is that has it, shoprite is another part of the building totally and it uses staircase

...but why would anyone in their right frame of mind allow kids turn an escalator into a playground or a swing. And people here are saying they should enjoy. I've lived in London for over 20 years and never seen kids turn an escalator into play point. The mgt or security would never allow that. Why are we so ignorant?

The first time I got on an escalator was in Leventis in ibadan and that was some 30 years ago. It was a great experience as we went back and forth...if things had been ok the way they were, ibadan was amongst the most sophisticated cities in Nigeria...i also remember transfer amusement park, chicken grotto etc...but then what do I know?...double O
