Hoodlums Kill 400 Cows During Protest In Edo by frosbel(m): 1:55am On Jan 15, 2012
More than 400 cows were killed and shared by hoodlums who hijacked the protest against fuel subsidy removal to loot and attack innocent citizens.

This was disclosed by the Chairman of Edo State Cattle Dealers Association, Alhaji Saad Ahmed when the General Editor, Tell Magazine, Mrs. Adekunbi Ero presented food and other items to persons affected by the activities of hoodlums. Ahmed who pleaded for the Oba of Benin’s assistance to reduce loss to traders said cattle herds had turned game in Benin City and its environs.

According to him, “Here, they killed up to 400 of our cows. When they see grazing cows in the bush they kill them like bush meat. Cows have turned to bush meat in Benin. It can happen anytime. They slaughter the cows and pack meat away.

“We have never witnessed this kind of thing in Benin before. If they had told us we would not have believed. It is our belief that it is not only the Binis that are doing these, but if Omo N’oba speaks they will stop. We like Omo N’oba (Oba of Benin, Omo N’oba Erediauwa) to intervene.”

Meanwhile, patrolling soldiers have arrested more than 12 persons who participated in the killing and sharing of cow in Benin City.

The suspects were arrested after one of the Fulani herdsmen tipped some military men patrolling in the area and they caught them sharing the meat.

Among those arrested is wife of one of the suspects, Mrs. Abbey Mary who was alleged to have used part of the beef to prepare food she was to sell.

Some of the suspects who gave their names as Bashiru Adigin and Peter Oguche denied involvement in the act but could not explained how they came about having large chunk of beef in their homes.

Police spokesman, ASP Ahawara Ejiroro confirmed the arrest and said they would charge the suspects to court after investigation

When Nigeria newspaper report anything against Muslim or the north bam every body accept the fact without verification, but when it is reported against Christian or south people will conduct an operation on the news discredit it and in some cases outright denial.

Cows are killed and they are crying. These same cows destroy cas crops all over the south and no one hears a thing. The foolish cow rearers offer no apology for these destructions. They should be grateful and shut up.

These are the kind of hijacking we shld bother ourselves with and not falsely accusing rival party members to stir up ethnic sentiments.
I hope the perpetrators are brought to book in order to give it the true face of the random criminal act it is, otherwise they may take as an ethnic or religious attack.

Re: Hoodlums Kill 400 Cows During Protest In Edo by tjadeba(m): 12:22pm On Jan 15, 2012
Deal with that Mallams and accept your losses, 400 cows still does not equate to one innocent soul killed by your brothers up North.But may God intervene as retaliation in any form would not be in the best interest of us all.Two wrongs would never make a right.I appeal to Southerners not to take laws into their own hands.Government must be ready to take drastic measures to tackle this insecurity issue

Re: Hoodlums Kill 400 Cows During Protest In Edo by snowdrops(m): 12:43pm On Jan 15, 2012
@ OP

The story is complete BULL. I have been in Benin for days; no such act happened. Hoodlums from a particular sect attacked a local bureau de change and caused moderate damage to property and limited injuries. The idiots were thieves and driven by the urge to steal money. No way were 400 cows stolen.

The media have reported so many false stories these past days. They claimed earlier that 4 mosques were burnt in Benin which turned out to be false. Another story was that 4 persons were killed by soldiers of hausa extraction in Benin which was also nonsense.

So guys take such with the slightest pinch of salt especially from the largely Lagos based media.

How did this make the front page? Thank God it was cows and not humans that were killed. How many people have so far died from the Boko Haram manace in the entire north? Even heard one of the xmas day bombers has been arrested in Borno Governor's lodge with a serving military officer giving him security and killing cow (s) is making big news down here. CAPITAL SHAME
