Exclusive: Lockdown forces increase in demand for indoor games

Demands for indoor games such as WHOT CARD, Ludo and tennis, have increased in Warri, Delta State, as a result of the lockdown declared by the state government, Fresh Angle International can exclusive report.


Owner of a provision and accessories shop at the New World City area of Ugbuwangue, Miss Anthonia Esealuka, told this newspaper today, Monday April 6, that prior to the lockdown, it usually takes her a year to sell three packs of WHOT CARD, but she had sold 12 packs at the usual amount of N400 under one week and looking for ways to restock amid looming scarcity of the card.


She further disclosed that she sold two rolls of tennis under a week, unlike in the past when it would take almost a year to sell a roll, which consists of 20 tennis, used for the table tennis indoor game.


Another trader in the same axis, Mrs. Juliet Edema, stated that she finished selling her stock of 12 ludo games between April 1 when the lockdown began in the state and today, Monday April 6.


According to Mrs. Edema, a ludo game which is normally sold for N400 , would take a year to sell two, but added that customers are now willing to buy for N1,000 per game pack amid scarcity.


Your Fast - Rising International Newspaper, also learnt that demands for bread and recharge cards, have also increased as the lockdown entered day - six.


A foodstuffs seller, Mrs. Juliet Abubakar, who just came from" Bush Market" along Sapele Road, explained that despite the extortion they face from security men enforcing the lockdown along the road, the price of a basket of garri, now sells for N800 unlike the last one week when it rose to between N1,500 and N2,000 per basket.


The increased demands for the indoor games, may not be unconnected to the near zero power supply by BEDC during this period of lockdown.
