In one research, Lagos State Government revealed that over *6000 heads of Cattle are slaughtered in Lagos daily.* That is over 180,000 heads of Cattle per month and about 2.2 million in Lagos State alone.
Analytical reasoning has never been known to be a forte of the African man and has been a major source of setbacks for us. The white folks have devised a way to tame devious, greedy and powerful people by hurting their economies. *They simply boycott their products and it hurts.*

*Why is it so difficult to ask people to refrain from eating beef secured with human blood for now?*
_”If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor”_
I have a friend, who is very comfortable by every standard and have personally implemented this in his own household for over a year now as his own personal sacrifice. Blood is being shed to secure cows that they will sell for your consumption. Invariably, you are contributing to the bloodshed.
_”He who does not oppose evil, commands it to be done”_
…Leonardo Da Vinci
Complaining and sharing gory pictures on the Internet is not enough. *Make a conscious decision not to be a part of the bloodshed by not using your money to aid the killing of our brothers and sisters all over the country so that cows may live.*
Eat fish, chicken, goat meat, if your religion permits, eat pork or go veggie! They are a lot healthier!
_”Silence in the face of injustice is complicity with the oppressor”_
Imagine what a total boycott will do to their economy if the whole of South and Middlebelt can tap into this. If Lagos alone kills 180,000 a month? They hardly eat the meat themselves, we do! We consume the blood of Taraba, Benue, Oyo, Ogun, Delta, Enugu etc people. Yes we do.
Just make the sacrifice and make a conscious effort to boycott. Let’s see whether it will work or not. Even scientific experiments are tried first.
