Lady displays N1.1m house agent took her to
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a lady had showcased the N1.1 million house an agent took her to.
The apartment is barely big enough for a person. The kitchen is so small-sized that not all kinds of body types can stay comfortably in it.
According to Nkemjika, she suspected the house would not cut it but decided to go take a look since she was around the area.
That was not all. The N1.1m is just basic rent and does not include other charges that could total payment to over N2m.
