Man Stabbed To Death By Herders In Lagos

It was gathered that two cows in a fleet of cattle had strayed into the road as a vehicle conveying 15 passengers ran into the animals and killed one of them.

The driver and the bus conducted were said to have fled the scene while two of the herdsmen attacked an innocent man they believed was the conductor and stabbed him to death.

An eyewitness said the development resulted in a face-off between the residents and the herdsmen who tried to escape with their cattle but were apprehended by residents who handed them over to the policemen attached to Morogbo Division.

Spokesperson of Lagos Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin, who confirmed the incident in a tweet on Monday, said normalcy had returned to the area and that the suspected killers have been arrested and were currently been interrogated.

He said, “A commercial vehicle ran into two cows this morning at Agemowo, Badagry, killing one of the cows. The two cattle herders attacked someone they mistook for the vehicle conductor, resulting in his death.

“Angry residents blocked the highway in protest of the killing. The DPO, Morogbo Division, assisted by soldiers from 243 Recce Battalion, Badagry successfully cleared the obstruction.

“Normalcy has since returned to the area. It is entirely false that the victim was turned back when he sought refuge in the police station.

“He did not make it off the accident scene, let alone reach the station. Meanwhile, the two herders have been arrested. Investigation is ongoing. Updates will be provided subsequently.”
