Nollywood actress Uche Elendu has cried out over the high cost of eggs in Nigeria.
In the past few months, the price of eggs has continued to soar, alongside other foodstuffs in major cities across the country.
Just last month, an egg sold for N60 to N70. However, it now costs between N80 and N90.
Elendu, condemning the cost of things in the market, prayed that Nigerians do not suffer from hunger and starvation.
The actress wondered how the masses survive in such an economy.
On her Instagram story, she wrote: “Egg is now 90naira, Oh lord help your children do not let hunger and starvation ravage Nigerians. An egg is now luxury. How much then will the chicken that lays the egg cost? I fear for the masses.”
TheNewsGuru recalls that back in 2020, Uche Elendu’s shop was looted by hoodlums.
“You can see the pictures on my Instagram account. The incident happened today. Only the security man was at the premises and he is currently at the hospital because they broke his head. My shop is in Lagos at Marwa bus stop.
“I do not know the time it happened because I was not there, I just got the information this evening. What I have there is worth over a hundred million, they even took away my generator. They took away everything, all the electronics, the shoes, bags, hair, everything. Including the furniture. I do not know how they did it,” she said.
