Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola, has signed the Anti-Open Grazing Bill into law to prevent killings, environmental degradation caused by open rearing and grazing of livestock.

The bill was passed by the state House of Assembly on August 12, and transmitted to the Governor for assent.

Confirming the signing of the bill, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Ismail Omipidan, said the governor signed the bill into law immediately the bill was transmitted from the House of Assembly to the office of the Governor.

He said “we have notified the security agencies that will enforce the law in every part of the state, so, it is a crime to practice open grazing in Osun state.”

He noted that the conveyance of livestock on foot from one destination to another in the State is prohibited, except such movement is by Rail Wagon or Truck or pick-up wagon and is within 7:00 am to 6:00 pm.

The bill prohibits minor from grazing, rearing or herding of livestock except under the supervision of an adult.

The bill reads: “Any person or group who contravenes the provisions of subsections (1) and (2) of this section shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable to terms of imprisonment of not less than 3 years without the option of fine as well as forfeiture of the herds of Cattle or livestock under his or her control to the State Government.

“A minor who contravenes the provision of Section 3 (4) committed an offence, and the guardian or parent of the minor or owner of the livestock as the case may be, shall be vicariously liable on conviction to a fine of N300,000.00 only.”
