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

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 unemployment.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.
