Olusanya disclosed that during the operation at the New Alade Market, three butchers were arrested and 29 live goats, three live sheep, 14 slaughtered goats as well as meat carcass weighing 30kg were confiscated, adding that the confiscated carcass had since been donated to the Little Saints Orphanage, Abule Egba, after confirming it suitable for consumption.

 

 


She added that over 1.5 tonnes of meat carcass confiscated at the Idi Ogbo in Eleko during the exercise were also donated to the Bab-El-Salam Home and Correctional Home for Boys, Oregun.

 

According to her, illegal slaughter slabs, abattoirs and meat markets pose a health hazard to the State and its residents because the animals slaughtered and sold in those places are not inspected by veterinary officials thus, the wholesomeness of such meat could not be ascertained, necessitating the dislodgement exercise.

 

Her words: “Today, our Monitoring, Enforcement and Compliance (MEC) Team dislodged an illegal sheep and goat slaughter slab at the New Alade Market, Oregun. During the operation, three butchers were arrested. Also, 29 live goats, three live sheep, 14 slaughtered goats as well a meat carcass weighing 30 kg were confiscated.

 

 


The confiscated carcass has been confirmed safe by our doctors and we have donated it to Little Saints Orphanage, Abule.
