Last Minute Shopping For Rams In Abeokuta Hours To Eid El Kabir

There has been a last minute shopping by Muslims faithful in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, ahead of Tuesday’s Eid El Kabir celebration

But in the city, traders in various markets complained of low patronage, while those who called at the markets said the prices of food items were outrageous

According to a Rockcity FM correspondent, Yemi Eniola, the traders at Kuto, Lafenwa and Adatan markets, lamented that their sale of Rice, Beef, Pepper, Oil and Birds is very low compared to normal day and during the 2020 edition of Eid El Kabir

They blamed the sharp rise in the prices of the items as the major reasons customers reduced the rate of patronage they used to get during festive periods.

The trend was the same at the major Ram market at Rounder in the city, where there were a large number of people seeking to buy animals for the festival, but only a handful eventually left with animals

The Seriki Yoruba at the market, who deals in Cow, told a Rockcity FM correspondent, Tobi Ojeleye that patronage they were getting a day to the festival, is very low compared to that of last year

A small Ram in the market that sold for N30,000 a few days ago, went for N40,000; while those selling for N70,000 before, was being offered for prices ranging between N90,000 and N100,000
