Controversial Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi, has again revealed that most of the stolen or rustled cows in Zamfara state and other northwestern states are transported to the southern part of the country - southeast, south south and southwest for consumption.
He made this revelation in a rant on his Facebook page on Monday, September 6.
According to him, the rustling contributed to the banditry problem being experienced in the country today in no small measure.

"Out of the blues, in 2009 cattle rustling became rampant. Most of the cattle rustled were headed to the south in trailers where they are sold and sla*ghtered. This massive movement of rustled cattle greatly reduced their population. Most of the rustling first affected the rural herdsmen and it became more elaborate in the north-western region."
