The campaign states that “human lives are sacred” with the hash tag #endcowpandemic.org’ is being held in response to the boycott of the South by northern traders.
Meanwhile, the strike action embarked on by the cattle and foodstuffs dealers under the aegis of the Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria has entered its fourth day.
The strike involved closing all routes linking the North to the South.
The AUFCDN said at a press conference in Abuja on Monday that its leaders had been invited by the Department of State Services for blocking the supply of foodstuff and cattle from the North to the South.
The blockade was done in protest against the alleged killing of their members in the South.
The union is also asking the Federal Government to pay its members billions of Naira as compensation.
