Cows may look dangerous and intimidating in some people’s eyes. Apparently the police in southwest Nigeria also think so, since they arrested a cow for participating in a murder case.
According to reports, a carnival cow was involved in a murder, which took place in Sango Ota, Ogun state, Nigeria. The cow had been bought for slaughter at the carnival, but things didn’t go as planned. Allegedly, a fight between some young adults broke out during the preparations for the carnival. The wrangle became so heated that one of the youths, a boy named Dayo, murdered another boy – Azeez Salako. All witnesses fled from the crime scene in horror after the 24 year old Salako took his last breath. Police officers arrived too late. They found only the carnival cow, so they took it back to the police station.
In case you’re wondering, the authorities made no further human arrests.
