Crushed Cow: Police Detain Bus Driver And Cow Owner

Police have arrested the driver and the conductor of a commercial bus linked with the death of a cow in Agemowo, Badagry area of Lagos State, Southwest Nigeria.

Gatekeepers News earlier reported that two yet-to-be-identified cattle herders reportedly stabbed a man to death in protest against the killing of the cow around the area.

The herders were reportedly crossing the expressway with their cattle when a commercial bus crushed the cow to death.

This led to commotion and a Lagos resident was stabbed in the process. Following the murder, the two herders were arrested by the police.

In a fresh update, the Lagos State Police Command has the driver of the vehicle, his conductor, and the owner of the cow.

The State Police Spokesman, Benjamin Hudenyin, confirmed that five persons were in police custody over the murder.

Hudenyin said, “They are the driver of the vehicle, his conductor, two herders and the owner of the cow.

“They are assisting us in the investigation because it is a comprehensive and holistic one. Remember, this is a murder case and we need to be very careful with the investigation.

“We are not targeting anybody. We need everybody’s input, including bystanders, so that we can recreate the scene and know what exactly happened and who exactly is at fault.

“At the end of investigation, anyone found not culpable will be allowed to go.”
