Crushed cow: Driver, conductor detained after herders killed Lagos resident

The Lagos State Police Command has arrested the driver and the conductor of a commercial bus linked with the death of a cow in the Agemowo, Badagry area of Lagos.

Two yet-to-be-identified cattle herders on Monday reportedly stabbed a man to death in protest against the killing of a cow around the area.

It was gathered that the herders were crossing the expressway with their cattle when a commercial bus crushed the cow to death.

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