A 26-year-old man, Aliyu Na Idris has reportedly put himself up for sale for N20 million because of hardship in Kano state.
Aliyu, who is a tailor was said to have been roaming the streets of Kano, carrying a placard that reads “This man is for sale for N20 million.”
According to Daily Trust, the Kaduna State indigene said he has been on the streets for five days looking for who will buy him.
He disclosed that he initially presented himself for sale in Kaduna, but moved to Kano after he couldn’t find a buyer.
Aliyu said; “Even though many people have offered me various prices of N10m, N5m and N300,000 in Kano, I refused because the amount is less than what I expected.”
He noted that since his tailoring business failed due to the financial crisis, making him lose his customers and become financially handicapped, he decided to present himself for sale at N20m only because he has no other means of survival.
On what he will do with the money, Aliyu said; “I will give my parents N10m; I will give N5m as tax to the state where I was bought, the person who helped in advertising me will be rewarded with N2m while the remaining N3m will be kept for me under the care of the person who buys me for my daily upkeep.”
Admitting that he knows he will lose his freedom if bought, he added that he is ready to face whatever comes off his decision. Aliyu also said if nobody buys him in Kano, he would move to another state to sell himself.
