Ondo State police command has arrested 5 individuals for allegedly promoting useless cows to unsuspecting residents of the state.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr Femi Joseph who disclosed this in an announcement launched final night time, stated the command arrested the suspects in several elements of the state.
Joseph stated these arrested included 4 butchers and one herder.
The PPRO stated the suspects have been arrested when the police acquired the report from the environmental well being officers that the herders had offered the useless cows to some butchers at low cost costs.
“It was the environmental officers that discovered that the Fulani boys were selling the contaminated cows to the butchers and reported to us. So, about four butchers have been arrested and one herder on the matter. We will charge them to court after the completion of our investigation,” the PPRO stated.
The state chairman of the Maiyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, Alhaji Garuba Bello, when contacted, stated he had not been briefed concerning the improvement.
“I have been calling our people in Ikare Akoko, to know what happened, but their lines were not going through,” Garuba said.
