The bill proposes a 21-year jail term for herders in possession of firearms and the establishment of a task force to curb open grazing of cattle in a city famed for its gridlock and bedlam.

Subsequently, Mudashiru Obasa, the speaker, directed Olalekan Onafeko, the acting clerk, to transmit copies of the bills to Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Lagos governor, for assent.
