ONDO: Don’t eat meat from cows that died mysteriously, Monarch warns residents

THE monarch of Akungba Akoko in the Akoko South West Local Government Area of the State, Oba Sunday Ajimo, has warned his subjects that it is unwholesome to eat from the meat of the 30 cows that died mysteriously in the community.

The monarch also instructed butchers and other concerned persons not to sell meat from the dead cows to the residents of the community, adding that anyone caught violating the instruction would be prosecuted.

Oba Ajimo said, “The cows were seen falling down mysteriously. Some said they drank water suspected to have been poisoned or that they ate poisoned plants. I have given instructions that the cows should not be sold under any circumstance since the cause of death is not known yet,” the monarch started.

He added that health officials from the local government council had been notified of the incident for appropriate action.

It was learnt that the incident happened around 8pm two days ago at the residence of the owner of the cows near the A.U.D Secondary School in the community.

According to a source, the cows were taken out for grazing in the afternoon and returned to the camp in the evening, but few hours after their return, they were found dead.

The source said, “The cows must have eaten poison during grazing, because it was shortly after their return that 30 of the cows in the herd started slumping and dying.

“When the owner of the cows, Ibrahim Saliu, also known as Baba Saliu, saw the dead cows, he raised the alarm to inform neighbours around him about the incident.”
