Police Arrest 200 Cows In Yola - 4 years ago
The police in Adamawa State have arrested 200 cows for invading a farmland at Yolde-Pate in Yola South Local Government Area. Adamawa police spokesman, Othman Abubakar, said this was following clash between herdsmen and farmers last Saturday over encroachment into farmlands. The police applauded the affected farmers for exhibiting maturity by not taking the law into their own hands. He also commended the herdsmen for accepting responsibility for the destruction by their cattle and their commitment to pay for the damages. He said that all the aggrieved farmers were shortlisted for possible compensation, while the arrested cattle were handed over to the District Head of Yolde Pate for safekeeping.
