As received from several persons, the price of Onions in South-South and South-East states seems to have taken an upward turn. As seen online, prices of onions have grown almost over a 100%. A man complained online of his wife buying 4 pieces of onions for 500 Naira and another got 5 smaller pieces for same price.

The growth in price has been linked to the burning of the Onion Market in Aba. As reported by a twitter user, Omasoro Ali Ovie, following the events of the protest and aggravation of IPOB, trucks used for transporting onions from the north were burnt at first then the onion market itself was burnt down. This was said in response to a twitter user Jess who asked why there’s no Onion in Owerri.

This is part of the lessons for us to follow peaceful dialogue and know that the pain of whatsoever damages will cause in the pursuit of our desires will be borne by us and not the people will intend to punish. As it is right now, the arsonists who are largely low income earners are also part of those who will bear the pain. They may not use onion to cook but ‘Aboki’ will not have onions for the Suya they’ll buy.


If he had any sense he would know that Lagos will never be part of Biafra.
