The Abia State House of Assembly has passed into law the bill to control nomadic cattle rearing and prohibition of grazing routes in the state, sponsored by Rt. Honorable Martins Azubuike, member representing Isiala Ngwa North state constituency.

Speaking to journalists after passage of the bill, the speaker, Rt. Honorable Chikwendu Kalu said the anti grazing law is necessary to checkmate the worrisome activities of herdsmen who he said have been a major threat to lives, property and peace of the land.

The speaker added that the law stipulates that every cattle entering into state must be registered at the entry point to the state and must be conveyed in a vehicle, failure of which would attract seizure of the cattle and severe sanctions.

Kalu also noted that the law has stipulated strict sanctions for defaulters, charging the arm saddled with the responsibility of implementing it to be up and doing.

The House also passed into law the bill providing for the compulsory insertion of blood group and genotype of Abia citizens in Identity cards.

Abia Breaking News also reported that, the sponsor, member representing Aba North state constituency, Dr Blessing Nwagba said the law will help families to avert the troubles they go through by checkmating incompatible partners before they get married.

The Aba North legislator explains the law will be implemented by the state ministry of health in collaboration with other ministries as well as the police.

She also explained that the law will give legal backing and complement the sickle cell pet project of the wife of the governor, Mrs Nkechi Ikpeazu and thanked her for supporting the bill to pull through at the state legislature.
