Sallah: Prices of Food Items Soar in Lagos Markets Amidst Eid Celebrations

Written by sogadmin

As Eid Kabir celebrations approach, prices of perishable and non-perishable food items have skyrocketed in major markets in Lagos, with some items increasing by over 300%. A 50kg basket of tomatoes now costs N100,000, while a 50kg bag of Scotch Bonnet pepper has risen to N120,000. Similarly, the price of a 50kg bag of local rice has increased from N48,000 to N65,000, and a 100kg basket of onions now sells for N70,000. These price hikes are attributed to high levels of insecurity for farmers and the high cost of transportation[1].
