Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, said he had engaged with controversial Yoruba activist, Mr Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, over the demands made by Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria to lift their food blockade to Southern Nigeria.

Bello spoke to journalists late on Wednesday in Abuja after the Union made up of cattle and foodstuff traders agree to resume foodstuff supplies to southern Nigeria, following his intervention, according to Kogi Flame.

Bello who was in company of former aviation minister, Mr Femi Fani-Kayode commended the traders for calling off their strike.

Aside Igboho, Bello said he would also engage with President Muhammadu Buhari, governors and other stakeholders to ensure peaceful co-existence among Nigerians to ensure that the demands of the traders were met and to make sure that everyone embraced peace.

The governor advised the traders to be weary of people, wanting to use them to stir violence, saying that Nigeria had come a long way as a united nation.
