The OPMAN president, Mr Aliyu Umar while announcing the suspension, claimed that two truckloads of the produce were recently hijacked by the unknown gunmen who are currently wreaking havoc in the region.
Following the suspension, some stakeholders in the agricultural sector have on Thursday, urged the Federal Government to intervene in the crisis to ensure normalcy returns.
