Strange As Camel Kills Man In Kebbi

An 18-year-old man has been killed in a village in Kebbi State in north western Nigeria when the boy, riding a motorcycle without light collided with the animal on a highway.

The incident, it was gathered happened in Koko village in the Koko Local Government Area of Kebbi on Oct. 2.

An eye-witness, Muhammadu Garba, said on Wednesday that the camel attacked the boy after the boy, whose identity has yet to be ascertained, collided with the animal on his way back from farm at dusk.

Garba said that the boy, riding a motorcycle without light, ran into the camel which was crossing the road.

The eye-witness said that the apparently enraged camel pursued the man after the collision, pushing him to the ground, biting him and climbing over the boy’s body.

Garba said that attempts by passers-by and residents of the village to push off the animal from the boy proved unsuccessful as the camel refused to budge, resulting to the boy losing consciousness and passing out.

‘I have not experienced such a terrible thing like I did today in my life. I have never experienced such a violent reaction from a camel in my life.

“Camel is a peaceful but dangerous animal that people need to be careful with.

‘I saw when the camel was violently attacking the young man with its legs but I was afraid to go close to the animal to attempt to rescue the man,” Garba said
