Reports have it that a ghastly motor accident occurred on Tuesday along airport road, Port Harcourt after two cows stray onto the highway.   
The cows, part of a herd grazing nearby were hit by a Toyota Camry as they got on the road, almost putting the lives of the occupants in jeopardy. The vehicle, on the other hand was smashed beyond recognition.

The herdsmen who grazed the cattle were said to have escaped the scene after they saw what had transpired.

The Rivers State Government and House Of Assembly should as a matter of urgency propose and pass into law the Anti Open Grazing bill to save our Daughters and Sons from the carelessness of these Fulani Cattle rearers on our roads.
On my way back from Etche along the Port Harcourt airport road that leads to obiri Ikwerre, I saw two cows lying lifeless on the road and also a damaged toyota camry car on same road and this caused serious traffic.
I alighted from the car, got very close to the accident scene,only to discover that a Facebook friend of mine Miss Nengi was the passenger in the damaged Toyota camry car, enquiries as explained by the driver of the camry Mr George, showed that while he was on speed two cows ran out of the Bush towards their direction, he lost control of the car and that’s all you could remember.
In all of this, there was no trace of the Fulani Cattle Rearers. They fled deep into the Bush with their remaining cows. Passersby who came to render help all spoke in unison about the daily occurrence of Fulani cows always running into cars, they said the last experience on that same road was a sad one because two human lives was lost and also pleaded to the Rivers State Government to do something about it.
