The Niger State Police Command has apprehended a suspected cattle rustler, who is being accused of making life unbearable for cattle owners in Luma village, Fulani Camp in New-Bussa, Borgu Local Government Area of the state.

The suspect, Umar Bahago, 35, of Kubule via Babana in the Borgu Local Government Area, was trailed and arrested by the police detectives attached to the New-Bussa Division following a tip-off.

It was learnt that the suspect had before his arrest rustled 30 cows belonging to one Buba Adamu of the same address.

The victim’s father had earlier reported a matter of the stolen cows to the police.

Northern City News gathered in Minna on Sunday that the suspect had over three-year reign of stealing cows until his arrest.

It was alleged that the suspect and his accomplice Muhammad Tukur, now at large, had planned to sell the stolen cows at giveaway prices with the intent of using the proceeds to settle personal debts and take care of their families.

In an interview with Northern City News, the suspect said greed pushed him into the life of crime.

Bahago, a father of five, said, “I am a cattle herdsman but have nothing to show for it. I cannot even give an account of what I did with the proceeds from the cattle I rustled.

“I have no right to take what does not belong to me; I regret my action and pray that my wife and children will forgive me.

“My wife does not know that I am into cattle rustling but now that she is aware of it, I am quite convinced that she will divorce me.”
