The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore-Fulani Socio-Cultural Association has directed its members to close their markets and return to the bush following the spread of Coronavirus.

The National President of the Association, Bello Bodejo, gave the directive telling all members to close down all cattle markets across the country.

Bodejo said that the measure became necessary to prevent its members from contracting the virus, according to the Sun.

“Let my people remain in the bush until the prob- the problem is all over; even those who are outside should join those in the bush until the situation is brought under control.

“They should close all cattle markets in every place in Nigeria because, in the market, you don’t know who is who; you don’t know who has tested positive to coronavirus and you don’t know who has contracted it.

“The best thing to do is take precautionary measures to safeguard my people and to halt the spread,” he said.

Bodejo maintained it is only the living that eat meat when asked how Nigerians will cope if his members shut down.

“Of what benefit will it be to our association if our people contract the disease while in the market? The best bet is to keep away from the market.

“The herdsmen who are in the bush or forest should remain there, as coming out to meet those in the market portends danger,” he said.

He, however, added that it was possible for those who are in need of cows to meet the sellers in the bush and forest to buy them.

He warned that in doing so, the herdsmen must make sure they have nobody contacts with the buyers, advising them to use nose mask during transactions.
