It was a black Christmas for the family of Mr Sobikime Igodo in Bayelsa state has tragedy struck them on Christmas Eve which led to the death of the young man.
Report have it that Mr Igodo was knocked to death by a cow at Obogoro community in Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.
Preliminary information gathered that the deceased and a group of friends had contributed money to buy the cow, kill it and share as they normally did every year.
According to reports, at the deceased’s residence where the sharing was to take place, the two butchers hired to kill the cow were unable to make the animal stand and they kept attempting to find a way to kill it.
Igodo, who was inside the house had come out but was receiving a phonecall and was not paying attention to the drama between the two butchers and the cow. All of a sudden, the cow got up and charged towards the deceased, kicked him so hard that he landed on his back and broke his spine.
