Cattle and Foodstuff dealers under the aegis of Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria will today commence nationwide strike following the expiration of a seven-day ultimatum given to the federal government to attend to their demands.

The union had on Sunday at a press briefing said it was demanding protection of its members, payment of 475-billion-naira compensation for lives of members and properties lost during the #EndSARS protest and Shasa market chaos.

The union also demanded that the government should order dismantling of all road blocks on federal highways due to problems its members get subjected to when carrying out their duties.

The Grand Matron of the union, Hajiya Hauwa Kabir Usman, while giving an update during an interview with newsmen, warned the police not to disturb task force of the union who will carry out enforcement of the strike by ensuring that no food and cattle were moved from North to the South.
