Buchanan City Burns ‘Contaminated’ Cow Skin
By Johnson Liway, LINA Grand Bassa County Correspondent

BUCHANAN, April 4 (LINA) - The City Corporation of Buchanan has burnt a large consignment of ‘contaminated’ cow skin on the grounds of the City Corporation in Grand Bassa County.

The bags of contaminated cow skin were confiscated by the youth advocacy group, Concerned Youths of Bassa, and the Buchanan City Police at the junction to the Fair Ground on Wednesday.

Buchanan City Mayor, Madam Julia Bono, told the Liberia News Agency on Thursday that when the consignment arrived at her office, cockroaches and other insects were seen all over the cow skin, which also emitted bad odor.

Mayor Bono said after the consignment was confiscated, she immediately called Superintendent Etweda Cooper and the Grand Bassa Health Team to the scene.

She said when the Superintendent arrived and saw the insects and cockroaches all over the cow skin, which was brought in by a business woman only identified as Fatumata; she ordered that it be burnt immediately.

She advised citizens to purchase cow skin from butchery shops only, adding, "the action taken has nothing to do with the deadly Ebola virus as is being speculated."

Madam Fatumata said the total cost of the confiscated cow skin is estimated at L$174,000.
