The Abuja Environmental Protection Board, has decried the rampant sale of donkey meat in the Federal Capital Territory.
Malam Baba Lawan, Director, AEPB, in a statement in Abuja, also decried the unhealthy state of meat brought into the FCT for sale to residents.
Lawan, in a statement signed by Malam Muktar Ibrahim, Head of Information and Outreach Programme Unit of AEPB, said that the situation has become totally unacceptable.
AEPB has therefore directed the Department of Monitoring and Enforcement to seize and destroy any fresh meat from outside brought for sale in FCT.
The statement also quoted Dr Regina Adulugba, Director, Veterinary Services, in the Agriculture and Rural Development Secretariat, as saying that it is unacceptable that FCT should be left behind while other states has since upgraded their Meat Haulage Policy.
