Ekiti NSCDC Seeks Forfeiture Of Seized Cows

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in Ekiti State said it will approach the court for an order of forfeiture of the 43 cows which had been in its custody for over one month.

The Corps Public Relations Officer, Tolulope Afolabi, who disclosed this in a statement on Thursday said the forfeiture will enable the security agency sell the cows to “partly compensate” the farmers whose farm produce were allegedly destroyed by the cattle.


“The cows were arrested in Orin Ekiti where they were found destroying farms and storage bans of some farmers which led to serious damage of the farms.

“The cows have remained in the custody of the command and all efforts to identify their owners have proved abortive.


“The command cannot continue to keep the cows and will approach a court of competent jurisdiction to seek for an order of forfeiture and sale to partly compensate the farmers whose farms and products were destroyed,”
