H.E Gov.

Yakubu Musa Damagum said, though the owner of the Cows lives in Mubi, Adamawa State, the cattle were rustled from his herder in Borno State.
He said the cattle were handed over to the rightful owners, after the standing security committee, appointed by the Government deliberated and followed all due process.
The rightful owner, the director said was identified as Francis Kwahur from Mubi of Adamawa State.
Yakubu Musa Damagum said, the recovery as well as the handing over has clearly demonstrated the commitments of the Yobe State Government under the leadership of H.E Governor Mai Mala Buni for the continued sustainance of peace and public order in the state.
The owner, Francis Kwahur while speaking expressed happiness that the security as well as the Yobe State Government were able to recover 33 of his stolen cows and handed it back to him.
The handing over of the Rustled cattles was done by administering oath by a senior Magistrate in the presence of the standing security stakeholders’ Committee, the two Chairmen of Miyetti Allah Yobe and Adamawa states.
