All Trunk A Roads in the North are actually cattle feeding routes, a ministerial nominee Mohammed Musa Bello has said.

He said this while responding to question on cattle rustling during his screening by the senate on Wednesday.

Bello who is from Adamawa State expressed his displeasure over the menace of the cattle rustlers as he urged the government to come up with an arrangement whereby herdsmen are captured at the border, identified and documented before allowing to enter Nigeria.
