The Amalgamation of Northern Traders in Cattle, Grains and Vegetables has disclosed plans to boycott the southeast market.

The planned boycott was announced in reaction to the ban on beef consumption in the southeast by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

IPOB had prohibited the slaughtering and eating of cows from Fulani herders in the South-East in 2022.

The separatist group had disclosed this in its action plan for the year 2022.

However, Chairman of Northern Traders, Muhammad Tahir, said members of the association would stop sales of cattle, grains, onions and other foodstuffs in the Southeast.

In a statement he signed, Tahir said, “For us, we would always support the indivisibility of Nigeria; but if IPOB wants to secede, then so be it.

“Bilateral trade between us and them is all about wealth creation for the two regions; the cattle we take to them is food and not poison.

“Therefore, if someone rejects your benevolent supply of food to their region, then you stop; because you must not feed them.

“After all, it is a mere unsustainable propaganda, which we’ve been hearing over the years.”

Tahir noted that the pro-Biafra group can not sustain the ban because residents of the Southeast would revolt when they start experiencing a scarcity of beef and other foodstuffs which only the North can supply.
