"Make una see yam wey i buy 2500, I hate this Lagos. And the we%ey tell me say na the best yam wey dey in stock ooo. I'm in pains."
When Legit.ng contacted @Uncle_sarmas to confirm the story, he said:
"Bought it from a barrow seller, 2 tubers. I don't stay in Lagos, just came in to do a few stuff. Lagos is big now, I don't think I'll see him again. I saw that the yam was big, that was why I bought it. I normally wouldn't buy yam by the roadside. But it's all good, lesson learned."

"Return any spoilt yam bought in less than 48 hours to the seller & ask for another or a refund; Be ready to activate ur inner we%ey if the seller refuses. Any yam that has a soft spot, has holes, looks withered or weighs less than it looks is likely spoilt, so always check well."
