The suspects were taken on the night of August 27 to 28, 2016. They will be investigated in connection with the attack of August 21, 2016.
The Mora and Ganse populations spent the night of August 27 to 28, 2016 under the supervision of the Defense and Security Forces. They cordoned off these areas in order to extract the suspects involved in the attack (with toll of four dead and many wounded) perpetrated on August 21, 2016 in Mora, the town of the Far North region that welcomes the Joint multinational Force to combat Boko Haram.
Sixty people were arrested. For the Governor of the Far North Region Midjiyawa Bakary who coordinated the operations, it is a “systematic control to search from top to see the causes and find solutions to problems. It was fashionable for measures to be taken in order to restore security and tranquility to allow peaceful people to go about their occupations. “ He also instructed the monitoring of suspected livestock trade as a source of financing of terrorism.
The Meme Cattle Market, the main market of Mayo-Sava, was closed following this measure.
“There is a resurgence of livestock theft lately. Measures have been taken to control this sector both upstream and downstream. We’ll just call all stakeholders in the industry to be more vigilant. It is not excluded that these flights and these cattle sales supplies Africa yet, “said the governor Midjiyawa Bakary.
