Motorists and shop owners flee after sighting 1000 cows walking freely in Osogbo road
There was palpable tension among residents in Osogbo as herds of cattle numbering about 1,000 freely move on roads in the state capital late yesterday.
The cattle were led by about 12 herdsmen, who claimed to be moving through the state capital to a neighbouring town.
On sighting the cattle on the road along Sir Adesoji Aderemi Way, motorists and shop owners fled and abandoned their cars on the road.
It, however, took the intervention of operatives of Osun Security Network Agency, codenamed Amotekun, to get people to remain calm and forced the herders to direct the cattle away from major routes out of the state.
