Ironically, the cows returned home without Usman Audu, our correspondent further gathered.

“The family of Usman Audu reached out to one of their district heads, Wakili, to help them find out by reporting the incident to security agencies, if the victim was arrested and in their custody, but could not be found.”

The family continued the search and informed people in the bid to trace his movements and whereabouts and extended the search into the bush.
