Masquerades generally are known to be scary figures apart from the fact that they also make up a part of our Nigerian tradition especially in the Eastern and Western Part of the Nation when they are unveiled during festive celebrations.
In places like Lagos State, Some masquerades use their scary nature to bully in order to receive money from an individual. They sometimes proceed to use the whip if an individual fails to cooperate.
Well, a particular Masquerade has met his Waterloo in an embarrassing manner as he was manhandled by young underage school boys who numbered up to coming together to beat up the masquerade who couldn't fight back as he was overpowered.
Passerby and LASTMA Officials came to the rescue of the masquerade as they looked to be demanding for an explanation to find out what must have caused the sudden outburst.
According to this Video here, the Masquerade seems to have confronted the group of boys who gave him a beating he would never forget in a hurry.
