Northern traders have agreed to begin the supply of perishable food items to southern states and end the blockade of food trucks that began on February 25.
The traders agreed to a partial suspension of blockage.
The Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello had a meeting with the leadership of the Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria (AUFCDN) in Abuja.
The situation has led to an increase in prices and food in the southern part of the country.
On Monday, the AUFCDN said the Department of State Services (DSS) invited Mohammed Tahir, the union’s president, over the decision to block the delivery of food items from the north to the south.
