The man was throurouly beaten and subsequently stabbed to death by the herdsmen before onlookers could mobilise for help.
The killing generated an upheaval in the area as youths made bonfire while blocking the major highway in the area .
It took the intervention of policemen and soldiers before some semblance of order could be restored .

The Police Report on the Incident

“A commercial vehicle ran into two cows this morning at Agemowo, Badagry, killing one of the cows.
The two cattle herders attacked someone they mistook for the vehicle conductor, resulting in his death.
Angry residents blocked the highway in protest of the killing.
The DPO, Morogbo Division, assisted by soldiers from 243 Recce Battalion, Badagry, successfully cleared the obstruction.
Normalcy has since returned to the area. It is entirely false that the victim was turned back when he sought refuge in the police station.
He did not make it off the accident scene, let alone reach the station.
Meanwhile, the two herders have been arrested. Investigation is ongoing.
Updates will be provided subsequently.”
