“We received an alert from the locals that some cattle had been raided and were able to recover the stolen animals,” Capt. Nsamba said.

Eye witnesses revealed that, on seeing security, the rustlers ran heading to the Adere hills located between Abim Town Council and Atunga Sub-County but security caught up with them which and retrieved the animals.

“When the UPDF soldiers arrived, the thieves took off but the soldiers pursued them as they were heading to the Adere hills. The soldiers caught them and brought back Mr. Odong’s animals,” a witness said.
