3 Fulanis Appear Before Court For Cattle Theft

THREE SUSPECTS, Nassiru Mohammed, Ibrahim Issah and Ramani Mohammed have appeared before the Duayaw Nkwanta Circuit Court for stealing three cows belonging to their master, Alhaji Alidu Akyidago.

The suspects who have pleaded not guilty have been remanded in police custody and the case adjourned to November 4, 2015.

Prosecuting, Detective Chief Inspector Tandor of Bechem police told the court presided over by Alexander Graham that Nassiru is a headman for his master and supported always by his friends, Ibrahim Issah and Ramani Mohammed in grazing their master’s 30 cattle.

He said on September 24, Nassiru and his friends after sending the animals to the bush came back and told their master that they could not find two of the cows.

According to the prosecutor, Nassiru told his master that he did not go to the kraal that fateful morning and that it was Ramani who gave him the information after he (Ramani) had gone to open the kraal to lead the animals out for grazing. He told his master that he later went to check and he discovered that parts of the kraal were broken by the animals.

Detective Chief Inspector Tandor told the court that Nassiru and his friends always milk the lactating cows every morning before sending them out but on that fateful day he told his boss that they did not milk the cows.

However, police investigations revealed that Nassiru and his friends went and milked the cows that morning as they left traces of the milk behind. The broken part of the ranch also could not be by the animals as it was not broken but intentionally removed.

Though the suspects told their master that there were two cows that got missing it was later found out that a bull was also missing.

In a chat with DAILY GUIDE, Alhaji Alidu said the cost of the three animals would be about GH¢9,200.

The trio pleaded not guilty and told the court that they would look for the missing cows and bring them during the next hearing.
