Police recover 5 cattle from rustlers

08 February 2013, 16:57 Oduor Omondi

Kisumu - Police have recovered five cattle which had been stolen from a homestead at Kawele village in Nyakach, Kisumu County after a fierce exchangeof fire with the suspected rustlers.

Nyakach OCPD Dismas Wanjala said the seven suspected cattle rustlers had raided several homes before making away with the animals.

“They raided several homes armed with crude weapons but only managed to steal the five animals from Joel Asuma Ayoko aged 63 years,” Wanjala said.

He added that cases of cattle rustling are on the increase in the region and attempts by police to quell the increasing insecurity are breeding hostility amongst the rustlers who keep attacking residents in the region.

During the 3am incident, police ambushed the gang of seven and opened fire on them.

The seven suspects fled leaving behind the stolen animals.

In the process, the gang attacked a  passerby Fanuel Ondiek Ojwang with their poisoned arrows and wounded him on the right arm while fleeing.

According to the police boss, the victim is currently recuperating at the Nyakach District Hospital where he is said to be in stable condition.

He appealed to residents to give more information that might lead to the arrest of more suspects.

“Residents should learn to give such information early enough so that police can respond quickly and arrest the suspects,” said the OCPD.

Barely a month ago, area residents threatened to protest over the increasing cases of stock theft by their neighbours who they claim ambush and attack them with crude weapons.
