Ondo govt lifts ban on sales of beef in Ikare weeks after eight cows were struck by lightning

Ondo state government has lifted the ban placed on the sales and consumption of beef in Ikare – Akoko area of the state.

The lifting of the ban was announced by the Environmental Officer in Akoko Northeast Local Government Area, Mr Adeniyi Yemisi.

Recall that the state government had placed a ban on the sales and consumption of cow meat when butchers in the area were selling meats of the eight cows struck by lightning in the town two weeks ago.

The ban was to prevent beef from the cow struck by lightning from being circulated in Ikare town.

The Akoko Northeast Local Government Environmental Officer said that despite the lifting of the ban, government is not relenting in its efforts to see that the well being and health of the people is protected.
