Herdsmen flee as cow kills 2 months old baby in Delta

There was pandemonium on Monday at the Ebrumede community in the Effurun area of Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State after a fleeing cow reportedly killed a two-month-old baby.

WITHIN NIGERIA gathered that the mother of the deceased baby was said to be standing by the side of the road when the cow strayed off the DSC Expressway by Ebrumede Magistrate Court near the DSC Roundabout and ran into her and the baby.

She sustained serious injuries while the baby died in the process.

Sensing dangers from residents and indigenes of the area, the herdsmen ran away from being attacked and possibly killed.

It was further learnt that the cow also injured an elderly man in the process after earlier straying into the court as lawyers and their clients fled for safety.

The baby who was rushed to the Warri Central Hospital for urgent medical attention was pronounced death on arrival.

When contacted, the Delta State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Bright Edafe, confirmed the incident.

Edafe said the herdsmen escorting the cow had been arrested by police operatives at the Ebrumede Police Station where the case was being handled.
