Osun govt. suspends slaughtering of animals

Osogbo – The Government of Osun on Saturday ordered the suspension of slaughtering of animal in all abattoirs and meat shops across the state as from Monday, April 25.

This information is contained in a press statement issued by the Coordinating Director, Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Youth Engagement, Dr Oluwabukola Aluko.

“The suspension of all slaughtering activities in the state is to sanitise animal slaughtering and other activities in the meat industry.

“It is also to meet up with the requisite standards of providing wholesome meat fit for human consumption,’’ it said.

The government advised all butchers willing to continue in the trade, to apply to the Veterinary Office nearest them for the renewal of their ‘Permit’ to slaughter animals.

It cautioned butchers against slaughtering animals without recourse to the due process, warning that any violation would be viewed seriously.
