Police can’t arrest herdsmen for grazing cattle on airport runways –Commissioner

The Nigeria Police Force has said it cannot arrest herdsmen who allow their cattle to stray onto and graze on airport runways in the country.

The Commissioner of Police, Airport Command, Mustapha Dandaura, stated this in an interview with THE PUNCH correspondent on Friday.

He said herdsmen could only be arrested in states where the anti-open grazing law was effective.

However, Dandaura said that all policemen and other security officials at the airports had been instructed to stay on high alert to prevent a situation whereby cows would take over airport runways.
