A Nigerian man who goes by the name Omo Iya Alamala on the micro-blogging platform, Twitter, has gotten his followers on the social media app talking after sharing the photo of imported mango fruit with a ridiculous price tag.
Alamala while sharing the photo pointed out the fact that a single piece of the imported fruit was selling for as much as N1300.
He added that while the fruit is being sold at such a high rate, places like Benue and Ogbomoso in Nigeria have the fruit in abundance.

However, Alamala was not the only one who seemed upset about the price the fruit was being sold. Some of his followers flooded his comment section with mixed reactions.
"What if the seller repackages Ogbomoso mango to this? I'm sure they understand the consumer's behaviour of their market. I don't trust the stores in high brow areas, most of them sell normal goods at a mind-blowing price," one follower tweeted in support of the price.
Another follower had this to say: “We can now see clearly why naira is struggled with forex. I was explaining to my son yesterday that Nigeria is import depended. I'm now vindicated when I told him includes farm produces.”
