Police give details of how train crushed 52 cows in Kaduna 

By Steve Oko
The Kaduna State Police Command had given details of how a train accident claimed 52 cows on  Sunday.
Some diplomats and senators were aboard the train when the accident occurred a source at the scene told Wawa News Global.
Police  said  52 cows were crushed to death by a train along Kasarami – Jere axis in Chikkun Local Government Area in Kaduna State

Police Commissioner, Malam Ahmad Abdulrahaman refuted reports that the cattle were killed by other means.
 ” Their is nothing like attack but purely it was train accident, so nobody should panic”, he told newsmen in Kaduna.
According to him, the cattle  were crushed to death at about 11:45  this morning by a speeding train going  to Abuja from Rigasa Railway Station. 
He also explained that  the 27 cattle that sustained injuries were  slaughtered by the chief butcher of Kasarami village. 
He said  no human casualty was recorded. 
“When the information of the accident reached the command, I quickly mobilised our men to the scene  to assess the situation. 
The CP  described the accident  as pathetic. 
He said the herdsmen  were moving  to Funtua Local Government in Katsina State. 
“They innocently inquired on whether there were rail services on Sunday, but were misinformed that there was none.
 ” I have summoned the traditional rulers of the area, youths and farmers on the need to continue to live in peace and to avoid crossing the rail track indiscriminately with farm produce and animals.
 He added that a similar meeting will hold with officials of the railway corporation on how to avert such an accident in future.
