Poisonous Cows: Kwara Buries Confiscated Meat

Kwara State government has buried the meat confiscated from the poisonous cows slaughtered for public consumption around Adewole area of Ilorin, the state capital.This development was in addition to measures already put in place by the state government to prevent people from consuming the poisonous meat.The permanent secretary of the state’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Mrs Funke Sokoya said that the government in partnership with other concerned stakeholders including the Iyaloja of Mandate Market, Ilorin, have agreed to suspend slaughtering activities for three consecutive days beginning from Monday to allow for proper fumigation of the slaughter slab.“Meanwhile, a preliminary investigation on the incident shows that the cause of the ugly incident was as a result of grazing on contaminated grasses around the area,” the permanent secretary said.She said that her ministry would intensify its surveillance at the private and government abattoirs across the state.
