Miyetti Allah Addresses Order To Stop Cow Meat Supply To South
Kasina State Chapter of headers roars Just as Nigerians react over news making rounds by Myetti Allah Cattle Breeders Associtation of Nigeria, MACBAN, to hurt supply of cow meat to Southern Nigeria.
The group’s Katsina state chapter, has described the viral information, mainly on social media as “ignorance” said the story going round that they are going to shut down cow meat to the South because of opposition to the Ruga project, describing it as a rumor.
The yet to be clarified news reads: “There is going to be scarcity of meat all over Nigeria as we are going to shut down the entire meat market because the Igbos and the entire south have not appreciated our efforts in making cow meat available”.
The state chairman of Katsina Chapter, Atiku Abubakar, on Thursday, said that they have not received any directive on that from their national body.
He further stressed that whenever such directives are given, it will be communicated.
The statement, which is yet to be confirmed by the national body has generated reactions on the social media.
Earlier, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode had reacted to the news by African Independent Television (AIT) on his Twitter handle (@realffksaid), the post reads: “Keep your accursed meat and choke on it”.
Different reactions by Nigerians, mainly, people of the Southern extraction, raised a conspiracy theory regards to Fulani herdsmen menace. Some people launched independent meat boycott campaign as way to drive home their point, said it is the best way to stop the killings since it is believed that the herders themselves do not eat cow meat while others circulated pictures of herders mating with their cows.
Despite the efforts by these set of people, the boycott appears to have been ineffectual as Cow Meat continue to be a staple food in Southern Nigeria, especially south east, where no major ceremony takes place without the slaughter of cows.
