Adamawa Police Command clears air on arrested Vulture in its custody
By Our crime reporter
The Adamawa State Police Command on Monday explained the continuous detention of a vulture and the woman that owns the vulture.
Speaking on the development, the Commissioner of Police, Adamu Audu Madaki, said the arrest of the vulture and the woman in Maiha followed a complaint against them by a man in Maiha.
Madaki said the man called to complain that a woman had brought a vulture and that the last time someone brought three vultures into Maiha the area was in few days invaded by insurgents.
Madaki said since the community seemed to be disturbed by the presence of strange vulture, he advised the man to lodge a complain with the Divisional Police Officer in Maiha leading to the arrest of the woman and the vulture.
He said the police were used to such types of complaints and have no option than to investigate to ascertain its credibility.
“So, we want to ascertain what the vulture is meant for,” said Madaki.
Meanwhile, the sum of N5000 daily has been budgeted for the upkeep of the vulture pending the outcome of investigation.
“We are feeding it with meat worth N5000 daily,” said a source at the police command CID who spoke on condition of anonymity.
In another development, the police have arrested 6 suspected drug dealers.
Handing over the suspects to the NDLEA, the Commissioner of Police said they were arrested by the command anti robbery squad.
