The FCT Minister, Muhammad Musa Bello has asked the National Implementation Committee for the Curtailment of Cattle Rustling in Nigeria to evolve mechanism to track all cattle coming from neighbouring countries.
The Minister stated this while receiving members of the committee led by its chairman, AIG Charles Ugomuoh yesterday in Abuja.
Bello said all such cattle could be tracked from the border thereby reducing friction often generated by their activities in the hinterland, which can also be used for statistical purposes.
He said: "It would be a good idea for your committee to set up a robust mechanism to track all those coming across the border even for statistical purposes."
Bello reiterated that majority of cattle rustling activities are being perpetrated by those coming from neighbouring countries hence the need for their actions to be nipped in the bud.
Speaking earlier, AIG Ugomuoh said the committee was in FCT for advocacy visit.
