Gunmen attack Anambra market, kill over 20 cows


Unknown gunmen have shot dead over 20 cows and several goats at the Nkwo Igboukwu market in the Aguata local government area of Anambra State.

Some residents who were thrown into a state of confusion following the incident, gathered around the dead livestock, deliberating what could have happened.

From videos shared, some of the traders were seen running, as they assumed the gunmen came back to attack. However, they returned when they observed their assumption was baseless.

A man said, “People can just start running at any time. We are just being vigilant. This is happening live at Igboukwu.”

Another added, “This just happened in Nkwo Igboukwu, just now in Nkwo Igboukwu, look at the cattle that was shot, honestly. Even goats were not spared. The things you have been hearing are true. It is not a trivial matter at all.”

Some of the traders examined the gunshot wounds on some of the cattle that have been killed as they stood in circles discussing.
