EKO HOT BLOG reports that two herders have been taken into custody by the Lagos State Police in Badagry’s Age Mowo neighborhood.
On Monday, the cattle rearers were detained in connection with the alleged murder of a man.
SP Benjamin Hundeyin, a police spokesman, provided information about the event.
The victim, according to Hundeyin, was mistaken for the driver of an LT Volkswagen commercial bus.
At around 6.30am, the vehicle had struck a herd of livestock, killing a cow.
“The two cattle herders attacked someone they mistook for the vehicle conductor, resulting in his death. The herders have been arrested”, Hundeyin tweeted.
The PRO attested that protesting passengers and irate locals obstructed the highway.
Later, the blockage was effectively removed with the help of soldiers from the 243 Recce Battalion, Badagry, and the DPO, Morogbo Division.
