Stop Telling Nigerians Not To Eat Bush Meat…National Hunters’ Association Cries Out

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]


The National Hunters’ Association of Nigeria has told the government to stop
telling Nigerians not to consume bush meat because it has affected their business
drastically in the last few days and its also driving its members into
The association made this known while addressing journalists in Lagos during a
conference held with journalists to address the situation.
The President of the group, Chief Ishola Olasehinde while speaking at the
conference said;
“We want to use this medium to tell the government that our businesses have
been affected since they have informed people to stop consuming bush meat to
prevent Ebola.
This is our only means of sustenance. Even if there is any virus in these animals,
once they are boiled and fried, it gets killed.
Government should include hunters in their research if they really want to prove
that bush meat causes Ebola.
We hunters are the ones who protect the country’s borders from being invaded by
nomads from Mali and Lake Chad. If not for our activities in the forest, Boko
Haram members would have taken control of many cities in the country. This is
not the way the government should reward us,” he said.
