ODSG shuts illegal cattle market at Uso

Ondo State Government has ordered the immediate closure of a Cattle market purportedly opened by a faction of Akure Cattle Dealers Association at Uso, in Owo Local Government Area of the state.

The Commissioner for Agriculture, Otunba Adegboyega Adefarati who gave the order also directed the law enforcement officers to arrest anybody or cattle found in the vicinity of the illegal market.

The Commissioner spoke at an interactive meeting with the warring factions of the cattle dealers association in his office yesterday.

According to Adegboyega, it was an affront for anybody or group to set up or establish a market of any sort any where in the state, talkless of a cattles market without the prior knowledge and approval of the authority concerned.

According to a statement from the Head of, Information Unit of the ministry, Bolu Ajilo, the Commissioner averred that setting up an abattoir or cattle markets or ranch in the state requires some technicalities because of the health and security implications of such actions and not just to be done by hunches.

According to him, Ondo State Government cannot allow any other agricultural activities at Ogbese and Uso axis already earmarked for large scale farming because of the volatility of the zone

On the grievances of the Hausa/Shau cattle dealers faction, the Commissioner promised that the government will urgently look into it in order to provide enabling environment for cattle business to thrive in the state

Earlier, the Ministry’s acting Permanent Secretary Segun Odusanya frowned seriously at the action of the Hausa/Shau cattle dealers faction vowing that government would not hesitate to visit its full weight of the laws on them.
