5 goats arrested in Osun state
Five goats were yesterday in
Osogbo, the Osun State capital by officials of the state Waste
Management Agency (OWMA) for allegedly violating environmental laws. The state Coordinator of the agency, Mr. Henry Ogunbanwo said
the goats would be charged to court by the agency and would be
prosecuted in accordance with the laws guiding environmental protection
in the state.
He said the state government had issued notice of warning to
all residents of the state capital on the need to monitor their domestic
animals to avoid public disturbance by the animals, which, he said, was
against the environmental laws. Ogunbanwo disclosed that the five goats
arrested were detained at the office of the agency in Osogbo from where
they would be taken to court for prosecution. He said the goats ran foul of the laws guiding environmental
protection by roaming around the residential area of Osogbo instead of
being caged by their owners.
According to him, officials of the agency would from now move
to every nook and cranny of the state to arrest animals violating the
state environmental laws, stressing that owners of such animals would
also be dealt with in accordance with the provisions of the laws.
Ogunbanwo advised those rearing domestic animals to keep them
in a cage to avoid arrest, insisting that his agency would not allow any
animal to roam about on the streets of any town or village in the
...abeg help me rate these people's level of reasoning!
