Bus Driver, Conductor, stabbed to death over killing of two cows in Lagos
A suspected herdsman has reportedly stabbed a commercial bus driver and his conductor to death for knocking down and killing two of his cows with their vehicle in Lagos on Monday.
It was gathered that the late driver lost control, causing his bus to hit and kill two cows belonging to the suspected herdsman at Agogo Igbala near Mowo.
This was disclosed by a Twitter user, @Austynzogs, who also posted pictures on his verified handle.
He tweeted, “12h35: Civil disturbances at Agogo Igbala near Mowo, along Lagos/Badagry expressway, after a driver lost control and used his bus to hit & kill two cows belongings to a herder. The angry herder allegedly stabbed both the driver and conductor to death.”
Videos posted by the Twitter user show people gathered around the bodies of the deceased driver and cows. The second person allegedly killed did not feature in the videos.
The front of the Lagos bus painted yellow and black is dented with some flesh of the dead cattle stuck to the grille of the vehicle.
All efforts to confirm the incident from Lagos State Police Command PPRO, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, were unsuccessful as he did not answer when SaharaReporters called him on his mobile. He also did not reply to the text message sent to him.
