He instructed relevant authorities of government to ensure that the law was implemented and enforced to the letter.

He stressed that culprits must be brought to book accordingly.

Meanwhile, he said the law would promote modern techniques in animal husbandry and prevent the destruction of farms by grazing cattle.

This, he said, would also reduce clashes and killings between herders and farmers in the state.

“It will also promote international best practices in livestock administration, regulation and control, among other things,’’ he said.
