Bello Bodejo, national president of the Miyetti Allah Kautal, has asked members to shut down cattle markets amid the coronavirus outbreak in the country, Daily Sun reports
Bodejo also asked their members to remain in the bush, until the pandemic is over.
“Let my people remain in the bush until the problem is all over; even those who are outside should join those in the bush until the situation is brought under control,” Bodejo said.
“They should close all cattle markets in every place in Nigeria because, in the market, you don’t know who is who. You don’t know who has tested positive to coronavirus and you don’t know who has contracted it. The best thing to do is take precautionary measures to safeguard my people and to halt the spread.
