As Nigerians prepare for next week’s celebration of Eid-el-kabir, the residents of Epe in Lagos State have lamented the high cost of livestock.

A check by newsmen have shown that while livestock sellers have decried low patronage, customers on the other hand say the cost is high.

According  to  Waheed Alake,  one  of  the  residents in  Epe, said  that  the muslims  this time last year had started buying rams and keeping in their homes for the sallah celebration  noted that the reverse was the case this year.


Chairman, cattle dealers association at Oke-oyinbo market, Abubakar Danyaro, attributed the high cost of livestock to the current economic hardship in the country  to  flooding  that affected livestock in some parts of Northern Nigeria.
