(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Over 40 cows were burnt and many persons injured as gunmen attacked a truck carrying cows in Anambra State yesterday.

The incident took place at Uga in Aguata local government area.

The truck was also set ablaze.

An eyewitness disclosed that none of the cows came out alive, while the driver and others in the truck were injured.

The source stated that the people who did the damage were over 10 and were shouting “This is Biafra land and not Fulani “
