The suspect was reported to the police division by a farmer in the area that the herder reared his cows to destroy his farm on Wednesday evening. A witness, who craved anonymity, told journalists yesterday that “a police officer attached to Kaoje Police Division was ordered to go and arrest the herder who was still wandering with his cattle within the area.

“The police officer, Danladi, with his rifle, apprehended Kuaara. But as they were going to the waiting patrol vehicle, the herder drew his cutlass and struck the officer in the neck. We saw the officer groaning in pains, in his pool of blood. He died before we could apply first aide. The herder was overpowered before he fled by officers who were reinforced to the scene.”
