Food blockade: DSS invites cattle dealers’ leaders


The leadership of Cattle and Foodstuff dealers under the aegis of Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria (AUFCDN) are currently with officials of Department of State Service.

General Secretary of the AUFCDN, Ahmed Alaramma, who disclosed this on Monday at the ongoing press briefing at Labour House, said the President of the Association, Mohammed Tahir, is with DSS.

Alaramma also alleged that the military personnel were intimidating members and task force of the union, adding that government should avert looming chaos by stopping intimidation against their members.

It would be recalled that the union had vowed to continue its nationwide strike and sustain the enforcement on the blockade of foodstuff and cattle from entering the Southern part of the country.

This, according to them, would be sustained till federal government attended to their demands, which border on payment of N475 billion compensation for lives of members and property lost during the #EndSARS protest and Shasa market crisis.
