Suspects says We Hire Guns To Kill People And Rustle Cattle
The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Zamfara State on Monday intercepted two cattle rustling kingpins identified as Hussaini and Abubakar Altine at the motor park of Zamfara State Mass Transit in Gusau.
The spokesperson of the Corps in the state, Mr Oche Ikor, disclosed that the suspects were arrested by the patrol team of the Corps in a bus on their way to Taraba State.
One of the suspects, Hussaini Altine, said he hailed from Agama Lafiya village in Gusau Local Government Area of the state.
Altine said he had participated in several cattle rustling activities in four villages where they killed at least six people.
He said their meeting point is Gusami in Birnin Magaji Local Government Area.
“We hire guns to kill people and I can confess to you that I have participated in many attacks on different communities at different times.
“We are being paid N10, 000 after every operation.
“I have no gun, but they used to come with their rifles. I don’t know where the gang leaders fetch their rifles from.
“Sometimes, I will only be asked to herd away the rustled cattle to various camps in the forest and I can tell you this is what I used to do,” he confessed.
Meanwhile, the spokesman of the corps said a discreet investigation had already commenced and further action would be announced when it is completed.
