Refusal to purchase rustled cows from suspected bandits has resulted in the murder of a prominent cattle dealer in Sabon Garin Tabkin Kazai town in Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

According to a report by Daily Trust, some armed men invaded the community and went straight to the cattle dealer, Alhaji Audu Mai sayen Shanu, popularly known as Audu na Yar yaye, shot him dead at a close range and fled.

According to a reliable source, “Alhaji Audu was very popular in eastern Tsafe local government.

“In fact, he might be second to none in terms of cattle buying and selling in the area.

“The armed men had earlier invaded the community and carted away all animals about three times.

“They brought rustled cattle several times and he refused to oblige to their demands to deal in them.

“He told them he had stopped dealing in cattle after he learnt that stolen cows have flooded markets these years.

“When they killed him, they fled without taking a dime from him.

“Most of the residents in the neighborhood didn’t know that he was killed until later because he was the only target”.
