COVID19: Police stop truck with dead goats from entering Calabar

A truck conveying dead goats and other goods, travelling from the Northern part of the country and destined for the livestock markets along the Ogoja/Ikom/Calabar highway, had been stopped at the Cross River/Benue border by government agents and security personal stationed at Gakem, Cross River State.

Reports from that area had it that even though the truck driver and occupants of the vehicle could clearly see that a sizeable number of goats in the vehicle had died, they was a rather bizzare desire in the truck to convey the goats to a livestock market in the state where the goats will be sold off for half the price.

Unfortunately, the Gakem crossing point is becoming notorious with several trucks in the last few days attempting to dump scores of street urchins from the North of the country, popularly referred to as ‘Almajiris’, in CRS. Observers have maintained that herding of these urchins is a deliberate attempt by certain elements to violate government’s attempt at making the state pandemic free, hopefully for now.

This news came in few days after the Nigeria Navy and immigration service returned five buses with amajiris from entering the state through the Bekwarra Local Government Area
