Koko [Nigeria], Oct 3 (ANI/NAN): An 18-year-old boy was killed in Koko village in Kebbi state of north western Nigeria when the boy, riding a motorcycle without light, collided with a camel on a highway.
In a bizarre incident, the enraged camel pushed the boy to the ground, bit him and climbed over his body, ultimately leading to his death.
According to an eye-witness, Muhammadu Garba, the camel attacked the boy after he collided with the animal on his way back from a 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 added that the apparently enraged camel pursued the boy 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 boy with its legs but I was afraid to go close to the animal to attempt to rescue the boy," Garba added. (ANI/NAN)
