It’s just 11 days to the 2016 Ed-El-Kabir celebration, and as a result prices of various sizes of rams have gone up astronomically across Nigerian states such as Abuja, Lagos, Ibadan and other parts.
The economic situation of the country also contributes to the increase in prices as well.
Checks by newsmen revealed that the prices were higher than what the rams sold for in 2015, with a small size ram now being sold for N30,000 – N40,000 as against N17,000 it was sold last year.
