Lagos state government Thursday descended on illegal slaughter slabs in the Okerube area of Alimosho Local Government Area.

The officials that carried the exercise arrested 10 butchers and confiscated two live cows.

According to officers of the re-inaugurated Monitoring, Enforcement and Compliance Team of the State Ministry of Agriculture, the action is in furtherance of the sanitisation of the red meat value chain.

The State Acting Commissioner for Agriculture, Ms. Abisola Olusanya, who made this known, explained that the exercise was coming on the heels of repeated warnings to the operators of illegal slaughter slabs and the menace of their activities.
