A Nigerian man identified as Edidiong Akpan has caused quite a stir on social media after sharing photos of foodstuffs he claimed he bought with 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.
Did you steal the items?
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.
Below are some of the hilarious comments:
Ruth Nwaneri said:
"You want everyone to know you're a bandit."
Vera Ihotu commented:
"Okay, please keep buying for your wife and save her the stress of going to the market."
