As a major step towards addressing the recurrent cases of cattle rustling and other associated crimes as witnessed in some parts of the country, the Inspector General of Police, Ag. IGP Suleiman Abba, CFR, NPM, NPOM, mni, has set up ‘The Nigeria Police Task Force on Cattle Rustling and Associated Crimes’.

The Task Force, which has an Assistant Commissioner of Police as its Commanding Officer, will have Tactical Units at each of the six geo-political zones of the country and is saddled with pre-emptive intelligence gathering, anti-cattle-rustling and allied crimes patrols cum operations as well as the investigation and possible prosecution of reported incidents of cattle rustling.

It is expected that the effective functioning of this new Task Force will whittle down the menace of cattle rustlers, which has adversely led to untold ethno-religious and communal conflicts in the affected areas.

The IGP therefore enjoins the citizenry to cooperate with the Police in their determination to provide community safety and security in all parts of the country.
