“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.
