It has now officially become a criminal act to be caught using tyres and other such materials to roast meat in any part of Benue State.  It has been revealed that the Benue State House of Assembly on Friday banned the use of tyres and other leather related materials used in roasting meat across the State in view of the health hazards to meat consumers.
 
According to Reporters, the Assembly directed that henceforth butchers and slaughterers should use fire wood instead of tyres and synthetic materials in roasting meat.
Speaker of the Assembly, Mr. Terkimbi Ikyange announced resolutions of The House after a debate on a substantive motion moved by the member representing Katsina Ala East, Mr. Ianna Jato.
The House also directed the Ministry of Health and Human Services and that of Agriculture and Natural Resources to effectively regulate the activities of butchers and abattoirs in Makurdi and other parts of the State to forestall health and environmental hazards.
Earlier, Mr. Jato informed the House that the use of tyres in processing meat by Butchers is a source of concern adding that tyres are made of synthetic rubber, natural rubber, fabric, wire, carbon black and other chemical components which are unhealthy for human consumption.
 
According to him, the United States Agency for Toxic Substances and Diseases Registry reveals that tyres contain several heavy metals such as Zinc, Lead and Copper that can be Carcinogenic when exposed to consumers over a period of time.
All those who contributed to the debate expressed concerned over the use of tyres to process meat and stressed the need to halt the trend.
