Cattle Dealers Threaten Strike Over Attacks On Members

By John Imade (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Amalgamated Union of Food and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria (AFUCDN), has warned of its intention to embark on a nationwide strike, if the Federal Government does not accede to its demands by February 24.

This was made known by the Secretary General of AFUCDN, Ahmed Alarama, via a media briefing on Sunday, during which he disclosed that since the #ENDSARS protests in October, 2020, several of its members across the country had been subjected to unwarranted attacks and harassments, citing the recent Sasa violence in Ibadan, Oyo State, where some of their members were killed and their properties destroyed.

Speaking further, Alarama said that AFUCDN had petitioned the federal government, state governments, first class emirs, amongst others about their ordeals, but had not received any response from any of these bodies.

AFUCDN wants the federal government to initiate an agreement between the body and state governments to the extent that if any violence of any nature erupts in the state and its members are attacked, it would not hesitate to immediately withdraw its services.
