The Borno Government has banned the sale of dried meat in order to curtail the activities of Boko Haram terrorists currently engaged in cattle rusting to fund their operations.
Gov. Kashim Shettima of Borno announced the ban at the inauguration of a high powered Committee for the Management of the Maiduguri Cattle Market in Maiduguri.
Shettima, represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Jidda Shuwa, said government had also suspended importation of cattle to the state capital for the next two weeks. He also noted that ONLY the Butchers Association and Cattle Traders Association were permitted to slaughter and sell cattle in the market.
