Following the release of the samples of IVM Keke, there have been different speculations on the price with some posting fake prices on the internet, especially on social media. In a statement released by Innoson Group Head of Corporate Communication, Cornel Osigwe on Monday, the company debunked the prices as fake and advised prospective buyers and the general public to beware of scammers so as not to fall victim.

According to an Academic Journal, the history of Keke as a means of transportation in Nigeria dates back to Mohammed Buba Marwa’s time as the military governor of Lagos State. He introduced tricycles as a commercial mode of transportation in the state.

The name Keke Marwa was derived from the commercial tricycle in Lagos. The word Keke is also from the Yoruba dialect of Lagos, which is the dominant language in the area. Although the popularity of the word Keke has been attributed to the implementation of the National Poverty Eradication Program, it is still not clear how it became a national symbol.
