The Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria (AUFCDN) on Wednesday agreed to suspend the one-week blockade of food supply to the South.
AUFCDN, the umbrella body for cattle and foodstuff dealers in the North, reached the agreement during a meeting with the governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello.
The meeting was held in Abuja with leadership of the body and also attended by the former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode.
A youth leader of cattle dealers, Abdullahi Tom, disclosed this in Abuja.
They also demanded the dismantling of all roadblocks on federal highways where their members are harassed and money extorted from them by security operatives.
