According to Jalige, “The Kaduna Police Command has on 23rd May, 2022 acted on reliable information that some suspected cattle rustlers were sighted when they entered Unguwan Haske Village of  Kauru LGA and made suspicious purchases of airtime as well as some consumables at about 2210hrs.

“This prompted the Command to immediately activate intelligence and deploy operatives alongside local volunteers to the location.

“The  rustlers on sighting the operatives, opened fire on them and the operatives responded with commensurate fire, which resulted in neutralising of one bandit while six (6) others were successfully apprehended,” it explained.

According to the statement, an AK47 rifle loaded with one round of live 7.62 X 39mm ammunition, one hundred and thirty (130) heard of cattle as well as eighty (80) sheep were recovered.

“The operation was a success as there was no casualty of any kind on the side of the friendly forces.

“The suspects are presently undergoing investigation and will be charged to court on completion while concerted efforts are being intensified to locate and identify the rightful owners of the rustled cattle,” ASP Jalige said.
