Train Kills 52 cows In Kaduna – Police By Adam Muhammad Dodo

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 Kaduna State Police Command reported Sunday.

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

“There is nothing like an attack, it was purely a train accident, so nobody should panic”, the CP told newsmen in Kaduna

The Police Commissioner, the cattle were crushed to death at about 11:45am by a speeding train going to Abuja from Rigasa Railway Station.
The Police Commissioner explained that the 27 cattle that sustained injuries were slaughtered by the chief butcher of Kasarami village.

The CP 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.”

The CP said that similar meeting would hold with officials of the railway corporation on how to avert such accident in future.
