Navy recovers 267 cows, 51 sheep, captured 5 bandits in Kaduna

Troops of the Nigerian Navy School of Armament Technology, Kachia, in Kacjia Local Government Area of Kaduna State have captured five bandits who are said to be rustlers as well.
The formation paraded the suspects on Tuesday saying that 267 cows and 51 sheep were recouped from the desperados on Saturday, October 26.
The Commandant of the Navy School, Commodore Tanko Pani while handing over the creatures to the state security outfit, ‘Operation Yaki’ at the school, 15kilometres away the state capital, said the developments would strengthen endeavors to free the region and its environs of banditry and other related violations.
He also cautioned to steer clear kidnappers and other bandits operating around the zone.
The Commandant mentioned “We shall continue to locate criminal hideouts and smoke them out.
“Following a distress call about the presence of invading cattle rustlers in Kujama forest on October 26, we deployed troops to carry out a hot pursuit of the criminals.
“Fortunately, the troops intercepted and recovered 267 cows and arrested five cattle rustlers while others escaped into the bush.
“We have been able to restore sanity in a few months since my assumption of office at the Command as Commandant as attested to by the communities and motorists plying Kachia – Kaduna, and Kachia – Jere Roads. This is isolated case and we will be doing our best to consolidate on current successes without compromise.
“Criminals should know there is no room for them here. We shall continue to locate criminal hideouts and smoke them out.”
The Commandant also appealed on neighbourhoods around to provide reliable and accurate information to help the command to respond at the right time to distress calls.
