The Police Command in Gombe State has arrested two suspected cattle rustlers
and recovered 35 cattle.
The Commissioner of Police, Mr Shina Olukolu, told Journalists in
Gombe on Tuesday that the suspects were Usman Saleh 30, of Gulani
Local Government Area of Yobe and Mohammed Garba 20, of Yamaltu -Deba
Local Government Area of Gombe.
Olukolu said the suspects were intercepted at Dadin-kowa village in
Gombe State with 35 cattle.
He said the cattle rustlers were suspected to have come from Taraba.
According to him, the suspects could not account for the source as
well as the ownership of the cows.
“The suspects could not account for the source and ownership of the
cattle, hence they were arrested and the 35 cattle recovered while
investigations continue,” he said.
The commissioner warned criminal elements and mischief makers to
desist from their criminal acts.
He said the command had put in place security measures that would
continue to frustrate people with devilish plans.
He appealed to the people of the state to always give useful
information on crime and criminality to the police.
