Oshodi Slum Kids Defeat Canadian High Commissioner, Sailors in Chess

Canadian High Commissioner, Kevin Tokar and a crew of Canadian sailors visited the Oshodi area in Lagos on Tuesday, where they participated in a chess tournament with some youngsters.

Founder of the Chess In Slums Africa initiative, Tunde Onakoya, shared on his verified Twitter page on Tuesday.

He said, “On this day in history, the Canadian High Commission visited Oshodi under-bridge.

“We received the Canadian High Commissioner, Kevin Tokar and eight sailors from the HMCS Goose Bay-a Kingston class patrol ship in the Royal Canadian Navy led by Commander Daniel Rice”.
