Lagos - Tomatoes are so scarce in Nigeria that N50 worth of the vegetable now goes for as much as N500.
While Nigerians are groaning under the weight of the cost of tomato, in faraway Spain tomatoes are ‘wasted ’ in the La Tomatina festival that is held in the Valencian town of Buñol, a town located in the East of Spain.
Since 1945, it has been held on the last Wednesday of August, during the week of festivities of Buñol.
During the festival, participants throw tomatoes and get involved in tomato fights purely for entertainment.
