The officials of the Department of State Service. (DSS) on Monday demanded a meeting with the leadership of Cattle and Foodstuff dealers under the aegis of Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria (AUFCDN).

The General Secretary of the AUFCDN, Ahmed Alaramma, made this disclosure at a press briefing at Labour House, Abuja, on Monday, where he noted the President of the Association, Mohammed Tahir, is with the DSS.

Alaramma also alleged that the military personnel were intimidating members and a task force of the union, advising the government to avert looming chaos by stopping the intimidation of their members.

The union had earlier vowed to continue its nationwide strike and sustain the enforcement on the blockade of foodstuff and cattle from entering the southern part of the country.

This, according to them, would be sustained till the federal government attends to their demands, which border on payment of N475 billion compensation for lives of members and property lost during the #EndSARS protest and Shasa market crisis.
