Police Intercept Three Truckloads Of Cows Stolen From Zamfara

GUSAU – Zamfara State Commissioner for Security and Home Affairs, Abubakar Daurian has revealed that three trailers loaded with cows suspected to have been stolen from Zamfara State were apprehended by police in Lagos and Kaduna states.

The commissioner disclosed this during a security meeting with the leaders of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeding Association and Cattle Dealers Association, transporters and stakeholders in Gusau, Zamfara State capital.

Daurian noted that two trailers were arrested in Lagos State while one was apprehended in Kaduna State, pointing out that the state government had been informed of the recent development which he said was under investigation.

“After the investigations, the three trailers would be handed over to the state government and the offenders would face prosecution, “ he said.

Daurian explained that the law prohibiting the transportation of cows from the state as from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. was still in force.

He noted that anybody transporting cows from the state must have three receipts from the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, Cattle Dealers Association and from the transporters to be free from the law.

He warned that the security agencies had been asked to ensure strict enforcement of the law to avoid stealing people’s cows in the state.

Speaking earlier, the Chairman of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, Alhaji Tukur Jangebe, and his counterpart, the chairman of cattle dealers association, vowed to uphold the existing laws, saying that every business of cows would be carried out under their watchful eyes.

“We can no longer tolerate such unlawful dealings while the citizens are constantly complaining that their cows continue to be missing on daily basis,” he said.
