The police in Lagos state have arrested two herdsmen for allegedly killing a passerby in the Agbemowo, Badagry area of the state on Monday, June 27.
According to the reports, there was a crisis on Monday morning in the Age-Mowo area of Badagry when suspected herdsmen reportedly lynched a 30-year-old commercial bus.
The spokesperson of Lagos State Police Command SP Benjamin Hundedeyin confirmed the incident.
He said, ” A commercial vehicle ran into two cows this morning at Age-Mowo, 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. The investigation is ongoing. Updates will be provided subsequently.”
