The man wrote on his X page:

"I sell this 50kg parboiled Nigerian made Rice, Long grain and stone free for 58k only. DM if interested, let’s do business."

Legit.ng spoke with him, and he said he farmed some of the rice himself in Hadejia, Jigawa state.

His words:

"Firstly, we farm our Rice in Hadejia, Jigawa state. But we also buy paddy rice from local farmers across the state, then process and package it for sale. I guess my rice is cheap because I farm it, process it and package it myself without any other party involved. Its like a direct labour so it cuts many unnecessary costs."

Haidar, who said he started a rice business in 2021, noted that he was cheaper because others were selling between N65,000 to N68,000.
