Aliyu Na Idris, a 26-year-old guy from Kaduna State, has put himself on the market in Kano.
The man, who is alleged to be a tailor, has been seen strolling Kano’s streets with a poster reading “This man is for sale for N20 million.”
The young man has been on the streets for five days looking for someone to buy him, and he informed Daily Trust that he did so because he was in financial difficulty.
He revealed that he first offered himself for sale in Kaduna, but after failing to find a buyer, he relocated to Kano.
“Despite the fact that several people in Kano offered me varying sums of N10 million, N5 million, and N300,000, I declined because the amount was less than what I expected.”
He explained that his tailoring firm had failed owing to the financial crisis, causing him to lose customers and become financially disadvantaged, therefore he opted to sell himself for N20 million because he had no other option.
Aliyu expressed his thoughts on what he intends to do with the money.
“I will give my parents N10 million; I will pay N5 million in taxes to the state where I was purchased; I will reward the person who assisted in my advertisement with N2 million; and the remaining N3 million will be held for me under the care of the person who purchases me for my daily upkeep.”
He admitted that he understands that if he is bought, he would lose his freedom, but he also stated that he is prepared to face the consequences of his decision. Aliyu further stated that if no one buys him in Kano, he will sell himself in another state.
