The Yobe government on Saturday said it had recovered 33 cows stolen from Adamawa and handed them over to the owners.

Yakubu Damagum, the director of security at the Governor’s Office, who handed the cows to their owners in Damaturu, said the livestock were recovered by vigilante groups, assisted by security agents.

“Government of Yobe state is happy to announce the recovery of 33 herds of cattle and the handing over to their rightful owners. This is after a standing security committee, appointed by the government, deliberated and followed all due processes in identifying the rightful owners,” Mr Damagum said.

He explained that the cattle were recovered in Yobe on August 3 by a team of vigilantes, assisted by security agencies.

The director also reiterated the government’s commitment to assist security agencies to have a better forum for inter-agency synergy, coordination and collaboration in Yobe.

“What we are doing today is the demonstration of the synergy among all our security agencies,” he said.

After receiving his cattle, Francis Kwahur expressed gratitude and commended government and security agencies for their efforts to recover the animals.
