The Tomato Crates Dealers Association of Nigeria has threatened to cut supply to Lagos State over the alleged destruction of its goods in a statement by the association’s National Chairman, Ahmed Alaramma.
Alaramma who is also the National Secretary of the Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria said a clash at Ile-Epo Market in Alimosho Local Government Area of Lagos state, had destroyed their investment in over 60,000 empty tomato crates.
He added that the raffia baskets initially used for conveying tomatoes to the south caused damage to the tomatoes, hence, the introduction of plastic crates,
He stated that each empty crate costs N6,000; therefore, members of the association have lost over N360 million in investment, calling on the Federal Government, Lagos State Government and other relevant stakeholders to look into the issue and compensate the association, to cushion the effect of the damage.
