Train crushes 52 cattle to death in Kaduna — Police

The Kaduna State Police Command on Sunday said no fewer than 52 cattle were crushed to death by a train along Kasarami – Jere axis in Chikkun Local Government Area in Kaduna State.

The Commissioner, Ahmad Abdulrahaman, refuted reports that the cattle were killed by other means.

”There is nothing like attack but purely it was train accident, so nobody should panic”, he told journalists in Kaduna

According to him, the cattle were crushed to death at about 11:45 a.m. by a speeding train going to Abuja from Rigasa Railway Station.

He also explained that another 27 cattle that sustained injuries were slaughtered by the chief butcher of Kasarami village.

He said no human casualty was recorded.

“When the information of the accident reached the command, I quickly mobilised our men to the scene to assess the situation.

The CP described the accident as pathetic. He said the herdsmen were moving to Funtua Local Government in Katsina State.

“They innocently inquired on whether there were rail services on Sunday, but were misinformed that there was none.

” I have summoned the traditional rulers of the area, youths and farmers on the need to continue to live in peace and to avoid crossing the rail track indiscriminately with farm produce and animals.

He added that a similar meeting will hold with officials of the railway corporation on how to avert such an accident in future.

  1. All animals are equal but some are more equal than the others. While families of humans killed for various reasons resulting from government negligence are left devastated, cow owners are compensated to elevate their loss. Okay ooo. There is God.
