The Kaduna State Police Command on Sunday said no fewer than 52 cattle were crushed to death by a train along Kasarami – Jere axis in Chikun Local Government Area of the State.
The Commissioner, Malam Ahmad Abdulrahaman refuted reports that the cattle were killed by other means.
“There is nothing like an attack, it was purely a train accident, so nobody should panic”, he told newsmen in Kaduna.
According to him, the cattle were crushed to death at about 11:45am 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.
