The Nigerian Army on Tuesday said its ongoing Operation Cat Race in troubled Benue State yielded tremendous result as troops of Sector 1 (Sub-Sector A) deployed at Yelwata while on routine patrol arrested 10 herdsmen destroying farmland at Tse-Tigir and Tse-Ndugh villages.
A statement from the Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Texas Chukwu, reiterated the efforts of the military to fish out criminals and protect farmlands in the state and its environs.
It read in part: “While in the act of destroying the farmland, the herdsmen sighted the aggressive troops and fled into the Bush. The determines troops pursued and arrest them.
“Items recovered were: 5 motorcycles, 2 machetes, some assorted charms and the sum of N 120,000 only. Suspect and items were handed over to the Nigerian Police for further necessary action.”
The Army is, therefore, seeking the cooperation of the general public by providing general information that would further consolidate its success.
Chukwu also reassured the citizens of the state of the military’s commitment in ridding the state of criminals who take delight in killing innocent citizens.
