9NEWS NIGERIA had reported that members of the Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria across the Northern part of the country have started diverting their goods and all consumables to the neigbouring countries of Niger Republic and Cameroon

They have also begun blocking trade routes to the South by stopping food item-laden trucks from going south.

Speaking to our via telephone, a trader, Musa Tijani said they have lost over N10Billion in just one week and pleaded with the group to allow them bring their foodstuff to the Southern part of the country.

According to him, “most of the perishable foodstuff have spoiled because even the countries that we are moving the goods to have the items”.
