While confirming the incident, a Fulani herder and owner of the dead cows, Abdulkadri Kadiri, said he was devastated by the development.

NAN reports that Kadiri described the incident as a strange occurrence.

“I went to farm after about six hours heavy downpour on Monday morning, only to discover that 23 of my cows had died

” After careful observation, I found that there was no trace of bodily injuries on the dead cows . I want to believe it is an act of God since I did not offend or quarrel with anyone,” he said.

The Regent of the community, High Chief Joseph Alofe who also confirmed the incident, described the victim as a gentle and peace loving herder.
