Drama In Lagos International Airport As 250 Cows Arrived Nigeria From US earlier on Thursday.
News Rain Nigeria gathered that drama happened at the cargo area at the international wing of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, when one of the 250 cows flown into the country broke loose from its crate, leaving airport workers at the tarmac running for cover.
According to reports, the cows which were flown in from New Jersey, United States, by the Ekiti State government in crates on a chartered cargo special flight, were being offloaded at the Gate 3 between the Skypower Aviation Handling Company (SAHCO) and the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company (NAHCO) sheds when the incident occurred.

One of the crates carrying the cows got damaged and the ground staff could not secure the cows after offloading which forced one of them to break loose and started chasing airport workers at the tarmac.
But airport officials on ground were able to bring the cow under control.
The cows have successfully been loaded into waiting vehicles for their transportation to Ekiti State.
The cows were said to have been imported into the country by the Ekiti State government in partnership with a private organisation for their Dairy Farm in Ikun, Ekiti State.

These are Jersey cows imported from the US by @ekitistategov for their Dairy Farm (in partnership with Promasidor) in Ikun. I’m told 250 cows arrived MMIA this morning.
It’s like one of the (IJGB) cows decided to do a quick inspection of the airport 😂 https://t.co/xjnKKH9z3Z
