A Nigerian man based in the United States has been left in a state of amazement after seeing what he described as an extension of the popular Ladipo Market, situated in America.
Ike Obiora informed social media users that he came across the the exact replica of Ladipo market in Queens, New York, USA.
According to him, the place which is into sale of car parts and repair of vehicles, has the same bad looking environment and it felt a lot like he was in Lagos state, Nigeria.
Sharing photos which amazed Nigerians, Obiora wrote;
“I found Ladipo Market Extension here. Same “ndị Ọsọ afịa”, same bad looking environment. No difference at all. Felt like I was in Lagos.”
