Police to deploy trackers, drones against cattle rustlers


 
 
 
 
 
The Nigeria Police Force has said it will deploy electronic technology involving trackers and drones to curb animal rustling in the country.

The technology, which was developed by a Nigerian company, INGSOC Ltd., is expected to ensure proper electronic identification and tracking of animals. It will also assist in producing actual population census and demography of herds, thereby enhancing information on livestock.

Announcing the plan on Tuesday in Abuja, the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, told herdsmen and other stakeholders that the electronic tracking system would reduce herdsmen-farmers’ clashes, eliminate animal rustling and associated security challenges.

Idris, who was represented by DIG Foluso Adebanjo, praised the Implementation Committee on Cattle Rustling in Nigeria which came up with the idea of the trackers, saying he was convinced about the usefulness and practicability of the hi-tech tool.

He disclosed that the committee did not receive any partnership or support from private individuals and corporate bodies in the course of its assignment, but expressed hope that they would buy into the project.

He said, “Addressing security issues is multi-faceted; it was in the spirit of this that the Nigeria Police Force in May this year hosted a national security summit on kidnapping, farmers-pastoralist clashes, violent crimes and other forms of criminality.”

The Assistant Inspector-General, Force Animal Branch, Charles Ugomuoh, who led the committee on curtailment of cattle rustling, explained that the mandate of his committee was being carried out to end the conflict between herdsmen and farmers.

“ICCCRN mandate is being carried out through provision and application of animal loading and offloading (movement) permits, adherence to use of designated cattle stock routes, institutionalisation of usage of designated grazing reserves and corridors and most importantly, cattle ownership identification, tracing and tracking of animals using appropriate technology,” he said.

The representative of the President, Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, Idris Bawa, highlighted the benefits of the technology to the audience and urged them to buy into the project to protect their herds.
