Two suspects managed to escape the scene as the police placed the cattle in safe custody pending to be collected by the rightful owners. Police have vowed to continue with such operations.

“Two suspects fled fearing arrest by the security team. The herd has been placed in safe custody awaiting collection by the owners as the security team engages communities living in the area to respect private properties and the law.
