“The truth is that Ogbomosho is a tomato town. The people produce it in large quantities. As soon as you are about to enter the town, there’s a market (I can’t remember what it’s called now) where you find baskets of tomatoes.”
Cjhinecherem Orjiani said:
“Strange. Well, lemme say it’s as a result of the location. Where I am, we’ve stopped using fresh tomatoes to cook a long time ago. The last time I checked, about three days ago, they still shade four small tomatoes for #200. It’s possible it’s that cheap because it’s in the west, right here in the east, Awka precisely, the case is different.”

“Here in warri that one she said is 100 naira, na 500 here.
“Even broken tomatoes, they shade from 200 naira upwards. This price vary with location. The person might not be lying.
“Nobody dey shade 50 naira tomatoes for warri here.
“So location varies.”
Man shares foodstuffs he bought for N600
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a man had sparked reactions as he shared the foodstuffs he got for N600.
Sharing the photos of the foodstuffs on Rant HQ on Facebook, the man wrote:
“See what #600 gave me, after they say women are better home-keepers.”
The items he bought included stockfish, fresh fish, vegetables, wheat, okro, pepper and onion.
Due to the hike in prices of foodstuffs, many didn’t believe that Akpan actually bought the items with N600, and they asked him to explain how he got them.
Some also joked that he must have invaded the market to rob the traders.
