Butchers in Edo State are at daggers drawn with the Coordinator of the State Security Network, CSP Haruna Yusuf(Rtd), over allegations of giving implicit backing to one Akhere Odigie who they alleged has been giving them unnecessary hassles.
In a protest march led by one Comrade Sunny Omokaro, a former chairman of the state butchers association, the complainants accused CSP Yusuf of being the backbone of the troublesome Odigie who at any slight opportunity threaten them with bodily harm.
The protesters went further to allege that Odigie has consistently boasted of having the backing of CSP Yusuf and thus he is beyond reproach.
However, while responding to the allegations against him, CSP Haruna denied it all calling on the media to discountenance whatever are the allegations being peddled about on him as he has no relationship with any of them.
CSP Yusuf stated that as far as he is concerned the protesters are faceless and are only out to gain acclaim by associating him with their internal problems in which he has not played any role.
