A London-based Nigerian nurse expressed shock on social media over the outrageous price of fufu.
Fufu is said to originate from West Africa and is made from fermented puréed cassava (tapioca). To make fufu, the cassava must first be made into dough.
No matter how far Nigerians go from home, it is only natural for them to crave food from their motherland. In her quest to satisfy her cravings, she was struck by a shocking discovery.

For 50 naira fufu???
In the video, the businessman making the sales stacked his wraps of the cassava meal in a carton. He sold them at £1 each which is roughly N920.
The nurse reminisced about the days she bought the swallow for N50 in Nigeria but captioned her video saying “I’m not a fan even.”
Some Nigerians, as usual, used the opportunity to drag their currency in the mud while others made more peaceful comments. See some of their reactions:
