After about six days, the leadership of cattle and foodstuff dealers under the aegis of Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria, on Wednesday, agreed to resume the movement of food supplies from the Northern part of the country to the Southern region.

It was gathered that the agreement was reached when the leadership of the trade union met with Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State in Abuja.

About a week ago, Northern traders had embarked on strike over the alleged killing of Fulani herdsmen in the Southern part of the country.

Prices of food commodities like pepper, tomatoes, beef, yam, garri, amongst others, had gone over the roof with many Southerners groaning and complaining about the increase.
