See The New Price of Pepper, Tomatoes and Onion in Ibadan, Oyo State

The sudden rise in the cost of pepper in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, is unconnected from the recent closure of the biggest pepper market in the state, Sasa market.

Sasa market was shut indefinitely on Saturday afternoon by Governor Seyi Makinde following the violent clash between Yoruba and Hausa traders. The clash, which lasted for nearly two days left an unknown number of people dead and properties worth millions destroyed.

Speaking further, Warith, who said the cost of pepper and other food items like onions has increased by about 50 percent in the last three days, noted that customers bear a significant part of the burden because they get smaller food at a slightly higher cost.

“I now go to Mile 12. Goods worth N10,000 at Sasa costs about N15,000 there,” she said in a barely audible voice.
