ABUJA—The Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Police Command has recovered 203 cattle stolen by rustlers, who have been raiding neighbouring states such as Nasarawa, Niger and Kogi.
FCT Commissioner of Police, Mr. Wilson Inalegwu, who made the disclosure while fielding questions from newsmen, said in December alone, the command’s operatives also recovered 17 stolen vehicles out of which 14 had been returned to their owners.
He said some suspects were arrested and arms and ammunition recovered.
Explaining the arrest of the cattle, he said: “There is an ongoing collaboration with traditional chiefs, village heads and neighbouring states to ensure we put the menace of cattle rustling to an end. Our patrol teams have been active.”
