The family woke up on Sunday dawn only to realise that the biggest among the herd of cattle which was also pregnant, was nowhere to be found.
The police have confirmed the incident and arrests, but have declined to give further details, saying they are still gathering intelligence as other names that are connected with the crime are emerging.
Son of the Gambiigo chief, Prince Sadik Ayine Inusah said they woke up on Sunday dawn only to realise the biggest among the herd of cattle which was also pregnant, was nowhere to be found.
He said they later found out that the cow had been slaughtered, “So, we informed my family because I was now getting pissed off and we said that we must search everywhere in the community and this time around we included the search to the Bolga cattle slaughter house.”
The prince said Shuaibu tried negotiating with them for an amicable settlement but they insisted the matter be reported to the police.
