Some civil society organisations (CSOs) say some Chinese nationals are slaughtering and exporting donkeys from Nigeria illegally. 

The CSOs — Civil Society Situation Room, Guards Against Economic Sabotage in Nigeria, Guardians of Democracy and Rule of Law AND Patriotic Nigerians Against Social and Economic Injustice — raised the alarm at a press conference in Abuja. In January, the Nigeria Agricultural Quarantine Services warned citizens against the consumption of donkeys.

The agency said donkeys are at the risk of becoming extinct in the country, adding that “donkey slaughter, donkey trade, donkey meat, donkey hide are illegal businesses”.
