The Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers in Nigeria has called off its nationwide strike after an engagement with the Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello.

The AUFCDN President, Muhammad Tahir, said the strike was called off following the Federal Government’s promise to pay  N4.75bn compensation, ensure protection of its members and stop all forms of multiple taxation and intimidation from security officials on the highways.

The group had demanded N4.75b, compensation for the alleged killing of its members and properties lost during the #EndSARS protests and the Sasha market crisis.

But briefing journalists after the parley in Abuja on Wednesday, Tahir stated that Bello begged the cattle dealers on behalf of the Federal Government to suspend the food blockade which kicked off five days ago.
