Police in Gomba, together with the Flying Squad Unit (FSU), have arrested 10 suspects highly linked to the continuous theft of cattle from the State Farm in Kirasi, Ddegeya Parish, Maddu Subcounty, in Gomba District.

It is reported that on March 29, 2024, five cows were reported missing from the farm, and the matter was reported at Kajumiro Police Post.

A task team of FSU was dispatched from the Crime Intelligence Headquarters, which established that one Nyanzi Robert, a cattle dealer of Lwekibira village, was buying stolen cows from the State farm.

He was arrested and helped in tracking down five other cattle dealers who were also arrested.
