Corona Virus has affected the price of hand sanitizer as Lagos Pharmacy increased the price.
A Nigerian woman raised alarm after stating that a pharmacy in Lagos has taken advantage of Nigerians by raising the price of hand sanitizer after confirming that an Italian man was tested positive for coronal virus
Farida Ladipo-Ajayi took to her Facebook page to share the screenshots of the sanitizer and the pharmacy involved.
So because of Corona virus, Medmark Pharmacy on Adekunle Osomo street Soluyi Gbagada sold this 500 ml sanitizer for N19,950. We didn’t notice, got back opened the product then debit alert of N19,950 came in. Took it back and they insist that is the price.I need to escalate this to whoever it may concern, this is too much.
As a result, the pharmacy was forced to issue her a refund.
In an updated post, she wrote:
I have gotten a full refund for the sanitizer. Thank you everyone, thank you FCCPC for taking swift action. I’ve deleted the post.
Her post got immediate reaction from Nigerians.
