A herd of cows recently stormed the Nwafor Orizu College of Education Demonstration Nursery, Primary and Secondary School, in Abata Nsugbe area of Anambra state and sacked students who were writing their examinations from their classrooms.
The atmosphere in the school was peaceful until the cows invaded the school in their numbers to graze.
A viral video of the incident recorded by one of the teachers showed the students and teachers scampering for safety while the herdsmen allowed the cows to graze at the field notwithstanding.
A source identified as Melu Grace Okwudili posted who posted the video on Facebook stated that security operatives in Nsugbe went after the herdsmen and eventually caught one of them.
Some of the obviously panic-stricken students ran out of their classrooms in their bid to escape any possible attack from the cows.
Voices of some persons supposed to be members of staff could be heard repeatedly screaming, ‘Close your door’ at the students who were apparently confused on the next step to take.
Someone at the background was also heard warning the fleeing students to get into their different classrooms to avoid provoking the cows into chasing them around.
This particular incident is coming up barely two weeks after a similar incident happened at a school in Edo State.
Several persons have reacted to the incident by raising concerns urging the government to do something about the menace before it gradually gets out of hand.
