NSCDC arrest 3 suspected cattle rustlers in Osun

By Akeeb Alarape, Osogbo
The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Osun Command, has arrested three suspected cattle rustlers that have been terrorising communities in the state.
Presenting the suspects to newsmen in Osogbo on Thursday, the Commandant of the Corps, Mr Phillip Ayodele, said the suspects were arrested following complaints from residents and intelligence gathering.
Ayodele said the suspects were said to have specialised in stealing livestock and invading farmlands in Onikoyi farm settlement before they were arrested.
“We got information that some strange persons armed with dangerous weapons were operating and terrorising residents at Onikoyi Farm settlement and Kuta, in Ayedire Local Government Area of Osun.
“Based on the complaints and intelligence gathering of NSCDC officers, three suspected cattle rustlers were apprehended at about 5:30 a.m. on Thursday, at their hideout, while two of the gang members managed to escape. Investigation is ongoing while we are also on the trail of those that escaped,’’ he said.
The Commandant disclosed that five Dane guns, several local bullets, a local dagger and series of charms were recovered from the suspects.
He said the suspects claimed they were hunters, but that preliminary investigation revealed that the hoodlums, Abu Hamisu, 35, Suleiman Musa, 45 and Aliru Lawali, 42, were all from Zamfara, with no affiliation to the Fulani community in the state.
“We have an understanding with the Fulani community and cattle rearers that they should update us with names and identity of new members coming into the state and they said those arrested were not known to them.
He said it was illogical for persons from Zamfara to invade a community and claim they came to Osun to hunt for animals.
Ayodele, who called on the people of the state to be more vigilant and report suspicious movements and persons to security agents, noted that security was the responsibility of all.
