- A Lagos house agent has come under fire on social media after he shared what he described as a self-contain apartment that was up for rent for N1.5 million
- The self-con is a bedroom which surprisingly has a kitchen fixed in it at the same time
- Nigerians have called him out for publicising such a small and poorly planned room that goes for an exorbitant price
In an attempt to advertise an apartment for rent, a house agent has got himself at the centre of social media 'dragging'.
The Lagos house agent had taken to Twitter to announce the availability for rental, of what he tagged as lovely, serviced and furnished room self-contain with a 24-hour power supply for a whopping price of N1.5 million.
Sharing shots of the room, @Agent_DodoKunle said an additional payment of N600k is needed to be made to cover for utility bills and light supply.
Apart from the outrageous price of the room that sparked reactions, the manner in which the room was built left Nigerians in awe.
This is because the bedroom happened to have a kitchen-like structure right inside it.

Registering his displeasure about the room, @GodsgreatG reacted:
"I think there should be an agency that checks how house are built. What’s this nonsense, kitchen right inside the bedroom and the ridiculous price. Make thunder no fire unah sha."
Another tweep @SamuAlajo1 said:
"I really don’t know why houses are over priced in that part of Lagos !! I don’t always get how can I pay 1.5m for a single room ? Is this not madness ?"
"This is disgusting to look at, not even a kitchen hood to extract smoke over the burners.
"I blame the wanna be middle class people flocking the island & lack of functional transport infrastructure to move people between locations with ease.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a house agent had told a Nigerian man that he wouldn't get a house because he looked like he didn't have a job.
The man @Bard_Boi_ took to Twitter on Tuesday, February 9 to lament what transpired between him and a house agent.
He said a day before, he had gone to look for a house with the aid of a house agent. He however was left in shock as the agent remarked that the landlord of a particular house wouldn't consider him a worthy tenant in his house as he looked like a jobless man.
