Bodija crisis :Butchers association calls for thorough investigation
By Adebimpe Soga-oke
The National Butchers Union of Nigeria (NUBN) have appealed to the Oyo State Government and the security agencies to thoroughly investigate the crisis that occurred at the Bodija market on Thursday, which claimed five lives.
The appeal was made by the NUBN South Western Coordinator, including Kwara state, Mr Biliaminu Elesinmeta, at a news conference, where Oyo State Government Officials were present, and members of butchers union in Oyo state, as well as Bodija Traders.
Elesinmeta expressed displeasure over the incident, saying butchers got a favourable deal in the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed with the government; he however wondered why the yesterday's occurrence degenerated to violence of that nature.
Politics Tempo recalls that the state Government had earlier directed the butchers in Bodija market to relocate to a new site at Amosun Village, as part of its urban renewal drive.
