Deadly Pig Disease Hits Abia, Farmer Loses Millions In 4 Days


An Abia pig farmer, Mr. Akobundu Steven Agomoh is currently counting his losses following a deadly disease that struck his farm, killing over 438 pigs.

Mr. Agomoh who is the CEO of Akonauche Farms located in Agbommiri Ndoro Oboro in Ikwuano local government area of Abia state in a chat with ABN TV on Friday said the swine flu defied all cures by his veterinary doctors.

According to Mr. Agomoh, all known medication was administered on the pigs but no result was achieved as they continued dying helplessly.

The farmer described the disease as an outbreak that broke out in Lagos, moved to Ogun, and later Umuahia, Abia State.

He said it was brought into the state by people who went to buy the younger pigs known as winners.

The disease which he said can be spread to humans witnessed a spike in Umuahia when owners of infected pigs started an aggressive sale to meat sellers.

He said it was transferred into his farm by meat sellers who had contact with infected pigs and later visited his farm in Oboro, Ikwuano.

The disease since the outbreak in June this year has caused fatal losses to farmers, he said.

In the third week of June, Agomoh’s farm was struck, leading to the death of 438 pigs, estimated at 11 million Naira.

“They died in tens hourly. The first sign I noticed was the loss of appetite and cold. Anyone that dies will have a semblance of blood on the nose.

“They also had red spots. Within 40 minutes after death, the spots change to black” he said
