Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State
Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has banned the sale of beef in Lokoja and its environs for the next 48 hours.
The decision was made following the mysterious death of 12 cows in Lokoja on Thursday while grazing at a land belonging to the Nigeria-Korea Vocational Institute.
Kogi State Commissioner for information and Communication Hon. Kingsley Fanwo who disclosed this in a statement on Friday said that there have been coordinated security and scientific investigations into the death of the cows adding that the investigations are being handled by security agencies through the Office of the State Security Adviser as well as Veterinary Doctors in the Ministries of Agriculture and Environment.
The statement reads in part “The attention of the Kogi State Government has been drawn to the report of dead cows within the Lokoja Township. “We wish to inform the people of the State, some of the proactive measures taken by the Government to find out the cause of the death of those cows and to also ensure their beef does not find their way into our markets.
“Security agencies and the affected Government Ministries and Departments have been mandated to form strong institutional walls that will stop the beefs from getting into the market as it is detrimental to health.
“The State Government has committed to briefing members of the public on findings about the incident. We also urge our people to volunteer intelligence that will help us unravel the mystery behind the death of those cows”.
