Former governor of Lagos and now minister for works and housing, Raji Fashola Known in Lagos as BRF has earned more appellations since he announced he found a Camcorder at the Lekki Toll Gate on Sunday evening.
Fashola, who erroneously called the small camcorder camera, a CCTV and picked it from where it openly sat, has been the butt of jokes on Twitter.
Some call him Inspector Fashola. One commenter said he is now “Detective Fashola Holmes”, after the famous fictional detective, Sherlock Holmes.
One writer even gave him the Holmes name in full: Sherlock Holmes Jr.
Another said Fashola is now the Jack Bauer of Ikoyi, never mind that Fashola carried out his controversial detective work in Victoria Island.
Bauer is a fictional character, an FBI agent and the lead protagonist of the Fox Television series 24.
Fashola is also now called 007 Fashola, after James Bond, Agent 007.
And another tweet said he forgot his CIA badge at Lekki.
Fashola handed the Camcorder to sitting Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwoolu believing it will help investigations into the Lekki shootings.
