A Nigerian woman has been arrested for claiming that a tomato paste she bought in a market tasted sugary.
The paste, Nagiko tomato mix, is manufactured by Erisco Foods Limited, Lagos.
The woman, Chioma Okoli, made the comment in a post on her Facebook page on 17 September.
She goes by the name, Chioma Egodi Jnr, on Facebook.
In the post seen by PREMIUM TIMES, Ms Okoli said she had gone to the market on 16 September with the intention of buying Gino or Sonia brand of tomato paste but could not find them.
She said she later bought the Nagiko tomato mix which she had planned to use in making stew.
“When I opened it, I decided to taste it, Omo! Sugar is just too much!” she wrote.
In the post, she urged other Facebook users to confirm if they had used the product before, apparently to ascertain if they had similar experiences.
