The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), has warned against the selling of rams in none designated areas in the city.

Senior Special Assistant to the FCT Minister on Monitoring, Inspection and Enforcement, Ikharo Attah issued the warning while inspecting the designated areas, on Thursday in Abuja.

He said that the administration would not allow persons selling rams to litter the city with animals.

The minister’s aide cautioned that anyone caught selling ram in areas not approved, such animals would be confiscated and the culprit prosecuted.

According to him, the administration will approach the judge and pray for a forfeiture order, and when that is granted, the rams will be taken to orphanages, less privileged homes and prisons.

“The position of the FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Bello, has remained the same in the last three years, and even tougher this year.

He added that sales are approved at abattoirs, ram market at Dei-Dei, Kugbo ram market and some other ram markets.

“But outside the designated areas, it will not be allowed by the authorities,” Attah said.

He disclosed that the Abuja Environmental Protection Board, (AEPB), headed by Osi Braimah, had set up a committee to check the sale of rams.

Attah, therefore, advised ram sellers to contact AEPB for proper guidance on selling the animals without violating the law.
