Vice President Namadi Sambo lost N200 million to armed night marauders, Sun News reports.
Although the incident has been kept under wraps and downplayed in government circles, a close associate of Sambo on Friday, disclosed that the armed men in military uniform invaded one of the commercial farms owned by the vice president along Birnin Gwari road, Kaduna State.
They allegedly loaded about 2000 imported special specie cows into trailers and disappeared till date.
“The monetary value of those special cows far exceed N200 million, the incident and subsequent development look more like a deliberate attempt to strangle the VP economically because he has been a successful businessman in and out of politics,” the close associate stated.
Emir of Zazzau, Alhaji Shehu Idris was also attacked by the marauders who invaded the first class royal father’s commercial farm along Soba road in Zaria and carted away over 250 cows also valued at some millions of naira.
Confirming the reports, the Commissioner of Police in Kaduna said that the police is working round the clock to ensure that cattle rustlers as well as other criminals in the state are flushed out.
