Onion Traders Threaten To Cut Supply To Southern Nigeria Monday by 2mercy: 2:19pm On Jun 06
their members lost onions and property...

By Abubakar Auwal

The Onion Producers and Marketers Association of Nigeria (OPMAN) has said it will cut off supply to entire southern Nigeria beginning from Monday if the government fails to respond to the association’s demands.
Daily Trust gathered that one of OPMAN’s demands is that its members who had suffered losses as a result of ethno-religious crises in the South must be duly compensated.


Others include restoration of law and order in those areas as well as a thorough investigation to uncover the remote causes of those attacks on their members.

OPMAN also called on the host communities to respect the constitutional rights of northern traders in their respective states.

Addressing journalists after the association’s meeting in Sokoto at the weekend, OPMAN’s President, Aliyu Isa, noted that members of the association lost onions and property worth N4.5 billion in various attacks in the south.

According to him, during the Aba crisis in Abia State, the association lost three members, while about 30 trailers, 9 utility cars, 50 stores and 10,000 bags of onion, among other valuables belonging to their members, were destroyed.

In Shasa, Oyo State, he said 27 lives, five trailers, 5,600 bag of Onions, 12 utility vehicles and other valuables were lost.

Isah added that members were robbed of onions worth N13 million in Imo State.

He said, “After full deliberation by the executive members of this association and the failure of government to respond to our cry, we resolved…that we are shutting down the supply of onions to the entire South by Monday, June 7, 2021, unless all our demands are met.”

Another exercise that will backfire. If you want to cut onion be ready also to cut tomatoes and everything so that it will perish in your houses.
Stupid people.

They cut off onions supply to South-East and nobody send them, nobody even noticed because we are all over the place against the twitter ban.

Now, they have threatened the whole South to get our attention, I never knew Northerners always crave Southetners attention.

If they could used the onions themselves without selling, then they can continue with their supply cutting.

But if they can't use the onions themselves, can't sell to other market, then they are embarking in a suicide mission

If you’re indeed a true proud southerner you shouldn’t ask that question @ bold.

You think all this Fulani killings raping here and there in the southern part of this country isn’t an agenda to frustrate our southern farmers ?

Southerners are predominantly farmers in rural areas, they are not lazy.

How come the north that claim to feed the country don’t have land for grazing cow but it’s the southern Nigeria that have abundant grass for grazing Fulani cows .

I will assume you don’t see from this angle.

Why is everything not working in this God damn forsaken country.


Have they talk about how to compensate the families of the innocent southerners who are being murdered on their farm by their fulani brother.

If it's about them that's when you would see them screaming on top their voice.


It's not their fault. Sheybi we are the one that refuse cultivate when we have abundant lands.

They should give their fellow terrorist-cum-hunger-ravaged onionbandits in Zamfara and parts of North-West.

They need it more. Feed them raw onions before they die of hunger.

Awon oniiranu.
