Nigerian Troops Arrest 21 Suspected Cattle Rustlers – Army


The Nigerian Army Saturday night, announced the arrest of 21 suspected cattle rustlers.

The disclosure, which was made in a statement by the Acting Director, Army Public Relations (DAPR), Col. Sani Usman, did not, however, state where the arrest was made.

Nonetheless, the Army, said it will do everything within its power, to frustrate cattle rustling, which it noted, now serves as source of funding of Boko Haram’s activities.

The Army said: “As part of measures to stem the tide of livestock rustling which serves as another means of funding Boko Haram terrorists activities, Operation Lafiya Dole, in conjunction with other security agencies has taken measures to stop the criminality.

“These measures have led to the arrest of some persons involved in aiding and abetting this heinous crime in the Theatre of Operation.

“So far, 21 suspected persons have been arrested.”

It added that: “Preliminary investigation and profiling of the suspects has commenced.

“Such actions by these unpatriotic elements are likely to jeopardise our collective efforts of clearing the remnants of Boko Haram terrorists in our country.

“Although investigations are ongoing, it is important to state that this is a warning to all those collaborators that aid and abet terrorism in the north east generally and Borno State in particular, to desist forthwith.”
