Outrage Erupts Online: Netizens Slam Reno Omokri Over Controversial Post on Yam-Cutting Culture in Nigeria

Please assume I am lying and fact-check me: This photo was taken on Saturday, April 6, 2024, at Upton Park market in London by Ola Ajai, a female Briton of Nigerian descent, who is also a faculty member at Plymouth University.

You can see the tubers of yam cut into two and sometimes even three or four. Why? Because yams are expensive, both in Nigeria, Ghana, and Europe. It is not everyone who can afford a whole tuber at once.

Also, it is sometimes done to show that the yam is not rotten inside. In the past, many people buy tubers of yam, take them home and find that they are rotten and inedible inside, though they look fine on the outside. As a result, some traders will cut open the yams to show they are in good condition.

Do not allow Emergency Lovers of Nigeria, who still harbour a grudge over the results of the #NigerianElections2023, to gaslight you into believing that things are suddenly bad in Nigeria because people cut yams for sale for various reasons.

This is not a new practice; and it even happened before I was born and will still occur after we leave this planet. That is why Yeshua (Jesus) said: “The poor you will always have with you.”-Matthew 26:11. @renoomokri
