There are different ways people celebrate birthdays in Nigeria, while some throw parties, buy gift items for themselves, and hangout with friends, others often find themselves being celebrated by their friends who organise surprise birthday parties.
However, one way of celebrating birthday which is common in Nigerian schools, is that the celebrant gets himself soaked in water or is given some form of subtle punishment by his friends.
This act has been taken a mile further by a group of friends who decided to celebrate their buddie in the most oddly weird way by dumping garbage on him.
They also gave him a few non lethal strokes of the cane.
Twitter user @King_koddy shared the story on the microblogging platform and posted photos of the birthday boy covered in refuse.

Trust such stories to attract the attention of Nigerians, who often times never fail to comment.
