The Lagos State Government has dislodged 10 more illegal slaughter slabs and animal markets in four areas of the state.

The areas are Ayobo in Ipaja; Mangoro along Old Lagos Abeokuta Expressway; Maya and Odogunyan in Ikorodu.

The Commissioner for Agriculture, Ms Abisola Olusanya, who announced this on Thursday, said the exercise was in continuation of the state government’s sanitisation and reform of the red meat value chain.

Olusanya said that the goal was to produce wholesome meat for the consumption of citizens.

The commissioner noted that during the exercise, 34 animals and 4.5 tonnes of meat were confiscated.
