The chairman of Lagos State Butchers Association, Badagry Zone, Mr. Taiwo Olanase, has petitioned the Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) Zone II over a threat to his life.

The chairman of Lagos State Butchers Association, Badagry Zone, Mr. Taiwo Olanase, has petitioned the Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) Zone II over a threat to his life. The petition signed by his lawyer, D.J. Fadesere of D.J Fadesere & Co, said some members of the association were after his life.

Fadesere said Olanase was attacked at Ibiye slaughter slab in Badagry Town. “They tried to slaughter our client but he barely escaped by sheer luck.” According to the lawyer, Olanase was duly recognised and certified by the Lagos State Ministry of Wealth Creation and Employment to run the slab.

“After the attack, our client reported the matter to the Area K Police Command Badagry and in the presence of the Investigation Police Officer, one of the attackers said that he will waste our client.
