Cost of cooking gas has shot up by about 38 per cent in Nigeria,prompting outcry by households who rely on it for cooking.
In Lagos, for instance, the cost of refilling a 12kg cylinder had risen from between between N2,300 and N2,800, to a minimum of N3,500 and N4000.
According to reports by Today, in Kano the cost of refilling a 12kg cylinder had risen from between between N2,700 and N3,000, to a minimum of N3,400 Refilling a 6kg cylinder now costs N1, 800, as against the former price of between N1, 300 and N1, 500.
Further, a 25kg cylinder, which used to cost N5, 400, is now being sold at N7,200, just as the cost of refilling 5kg cylinder, rose to N1, 500, as against the former price of N1, 200.
The hike took the nation by surprise and might be related to the constant attack of pipelines by the Niger Delta Avengers.
