The men were arrested by the police patrol team when they chanced on them carrying the cattle on a tricycle.
The suspects are currently in police custody in Yendi in the Northern Region and will be arraigned on Tuesday.

The attack led to the destruction of some properties
According to reports, the attack came after allegations that some armed robbers had attacked and killed a Konkomba man on Tuesday, April 11, 2022.
