The Kwara State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) arrested two suspected meat sellers for allegedly attempting to sell contaminated beef to unsuspected members of the public.


The two suspects are Mr. Bashiru Bala Zuru and Mr. Nawali Bala.


The state Civil Defence Corps Public Relations Officer, Mr. Babawale Zaid Afolabi, said the two suspects were arrested in Patigi area of the state.


According to him, “Around 8:50 a.m. last Saturday, our men from Patigi divisional headquarters, who were acting on a tip off, arrested one Nawali Bala, a native of Okoloke, Kogi State.

“Bala was caught with some contaminated cow meat (beef) neatly packed inside polythene bags.

“During the interrogation, Bala confessed that the cow meat was given to him by Dantani Jayewu (at large), who lives in Okoloke, Kogi State.”


He explained that further check by the state Ministry of Environment and Public Health confirmed that the meat was unhealthy for human consumption.


Afolabi, therefore, said that the suspects would be charged to court after the completion of the investigations.
