Mr. Taofiq Adebayo, the Public Affairs Officer of the agency, who confirmed the incident, said the raids on the illegal abattoirs were carried out on slaughter slabs considered not in line with the statutory standards as contained in the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Laws.

“The raid was sequel to information received of some illegal abattoir and slabs in operation around Oshodi and Idi-Araba. The enforcement operations, that had successfully closed and sealed an illegal abattoir and slabs at Oshodi, however, met a stiff resistance from miscreants and operators at Idi-Araba.

“The rampaging miscreants and operators of the illegal abattoir at Idi-Araba in attempt to stop the team from carrying out the exercise came out in large numbers and attacked them.” Adebayo said.
