Illegal abattoir: Lagos Govt arrests 10 butchers, impounds cows


The Lagos State Government on Thursday clampdown on an illegal abattoir at Oke Rube area of Alimosho Local Government, arrested 10 butchers and confiscated two live cows.

The government had last week warned that it would begin clampdown on illegal abattoirs in the State.

The onslaught was carried out by men of the re-inaugurated Monitoring, Enforcement and Compliance Team of the State Ministry of Agriculture in furtherance of the sanitization of the red meat value chain.
