The Niger State Police Command has arrested a man for allegedly stealing two cows at Chekungi village in Bida Local Government Area of the state.
The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, DSP Wasiu Abiodun, who disclosed this in Minna, said the suspect was arrested based on a report received by A Division Bida.
He explained that last Monday, a case of missing horses from a farm at Chekungi village was reported at the Division.
It was reported that on Sunday, October 3, 2023, at about 9:11 am, two female horses were stolen from the stable where about five horses were kept.
According to the PPRO, “The complainant strongly suspected one Ahmed Abubakar Aliyu of Zaria, Kaduna, who was in the farm and had been visiting the farm for horse grooming and racing.”
He further disclosed that the suspect was immediately arrested from the farm and during interrogation, confessed to the crime.
Abiodun stated that the suspect moved the two horses to a nearby bush from the farm, and later hired a vehicle from the park to move the horses to Kaduna at a cost of N100,000.
“Based on the confession, the driver of the vehicle was contacted and he dropped the horses at Mararaban-Jos, Kadun, and another vehicle was arranged to convey the horses back to Bida,” the police spokesperson added.
Abiodun noted that investigation on the case is ongoing, adding that the suspect will be made to face the law.
