Ebola Virus: Nigerian Govt Bans Bush Meat Importation

The Nigerian government has banned the importation of bush meat from West African countries such as Guinea. The ban which existed before was brought back in order to curb the outbreak of the deadly Ebola Virus currently plaguing the nation.
The controller of the Nigerian Agricultural Quarantine Services, Murtala Muhammed International Airport in
Lagos, Dr. Okey Okwuosa who announced the ban also warned Nigerians to totally abstain from eating bush-meat for now.
He also warned Nigerians to avoid fruits which have been eaten or bitten by fruit bats or insects as fruit bats have been medically proven to be carriers of the deadly virus.
