This remarkable achievement is a testament to the unwavering commitment of our police force in safeguarding the livelihoods of our citizens and maintaining law and order in our communities.
The Theft and Its Discovery
On a fateful day, September 11th, to be precise, the tranquility of the Company Zurak community was shattered when a group of criminals allegedly rustled a substantial number of cattle belonging to Alhaji Idris Yunusa, a prominent figure from the Gajin Duguri community in the Alkaleri Council Area of Bauchi State. The stolen cattle were entrusted to his care, and the brazen act of theft sent shockwaves through the region.
A Swift Response
The wheels of justice began to turn swiftly when, on September 19th, the Plateau Police Command received credible information regarding the theft. The stolen cattle, grazing peacefully before the incident, were suddenly disrupted from their pastoral routine and driven towards the enigmatic Odare forest, located in the Kampani Zurak village of Wase Local Government Area.
Upon receiving this critical intelligence, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) stationed in Bashar took immediate action. Leading a team of armed personnel, the DPO collaborated seamlessly with local security outfits and skilled hunters to intercept the suspects involved in this audacious theft.
The Pursuit and Recovery
As the police and their allies closed in on the suspects, the criminals retreated into the nearby forests, desperately attempting to evade the long arm of the law. Despite their attempts to flee, justice prevailed. In a significant triumph for law enforcement, a total of 77 stolen cows were successfully recovered and returned to their rightful owner, Alhaji Idris Yunusa.
The Ongoing Pursuit of Justice
While the recovery of the stolen cattle is a notable achievement, the Plateau Police Command remains steadfast in its commitment to apprehending the suspects responsible for this crime. Our law enforcement agencies are tirelessly working to ensure that the perpetrators of this theft face the full force of the law. The message is clear: criminal activities will not be tolerated within our jurisdiction, and those who defy the law will be held accountable for their actions.
A Message from the Commissioner of Police

He emphasizes the unwavering commitment of the Plateau Police Command to ensure the safety of lives and property in the region.
