The Senate on Tuesday considered a bill seeking to control the movement of livestock across the country, curb incessant cattle rustling and conflicts between herders and farmers.

The bill, which seeks to establish National Livestock (Protection, Control and Management) Bureau, passed second reading.

The proposed law, according to its sponsor, Senator Bima, Muhammad Enagi (Niger South), is to safeguard our national livestock and sanitize the livestock industry.

The lawmaker, in his lead debate, said the movement of livestock and their products has increased the spread of diseases, increased the threat to human health and reduced consumer confidence in animal products.
