Police Commissioner Says NPF Can’t Arrest Herdsmen For Grazing Cattle On Airport Runways

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 our 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. But we have already alerted our men at the airports to ensure such incident does not occur again. Everyone is now on the alert and it’s going to be prevented.

Last Saturday, an Air Peace flight from Lagos had been prevented from landing at the Akure Airport, Ondo State as cows took over the runway. It had taken the efforts of airport security and other aviation workers to clear the runway before the airplane landed.


  1. This country is a banana Republic ruled by a despot on medicated glasses.

  2. #The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts while the stupid ones are full of confidence*

  3. Say what!!!!! This people eh, Lord have mercy

  4. The fear of Bubu..Fela for presido and all animal kingdom disbanded. There was once a country

  5. Is understanding that difficult

    Where anti-open grazing law are effective, the police force is empowered, where it isn't, they have no power to make effective arrests.

    Tell your state legislatures to do their jobs!!!
