“Our meat does not have Ebola”Bush Meat Sellers in Oyo cry out

Yesterday,Scores of bush meat sellers, marched to Governor Abiola Ajimobis office at the Oyo State Secretariat, Ibadan, complaining of low patronage due to the outbreak of ebola disease.Speaking on behalf of the association, Alhaja Risikat Odeyemi, Iyalode, Bushmeat Sellers Association, Oyo, said

Our meats do not have any Ebola virus. We dont know why people should just be peddling rumour that would be injurious to other people. This is not good at all. They have spoilt our business without any good reason. What we heard is that the disease was contacted through the river. Why should they be so unfair?They said before the announcement, a grass cutter was being sold between N2,000 and N4,000 and the same thing goes for antelope and other animals. But, now they regretted that there are no sales again.We normally stand by the roadside to invite prospective buyers. But, now when we call them to buy bush meats they always reply us saying, Ebola. It is the same meat we have been eating and nothing has happened to us, Odeyemi said.
