Speaking on Wednesday, the NSCDC Spokesman, DSC Adamu Shehu, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Dutse that the suspect was arrested in Buji Local Government Area of the state.
Adamu said that the accused allegedly connived with three other fleeing persons, and stole the goats in Shafori village.
The suspect was caught after owners of the stolen goats tracked them to one of the markets in the area, the spokesperson said.
Adamu added that the owners immediately reported the issue to the Community leader who in turn reported it to the NSCDC office in the area.
“The suspect was nabbed by our men after we received a report about the incident from the head of Shafori community.
“He was arrested at about noon on Tuesday and his three accomplices are now at large,” the spokesman said.
Meanwhile, investigation into the case is currently ongoing after which the accused would be charged to court, while a manhunt to arrest the three fleeing suspects is on.
