There was a drama at the cargo area at the international wing of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, when one of the 250 cows flown into the country through the airport broke loose from its crate.
The incident left airport workers at the tarmac running for cover, Tribune reported.
The cows, which were flown in from New Jersey by the Ekiti State Government in crates on a chartered cargo special flight, were being offloaded at the Gate 3 between the Skypower Aviation Handling Company (SAHCO) and the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company (NAHCO) sheds when the incident occurred.
The bubble burst when one of the crates carrying the cows got damaged and the ground staff could not secure the cows after offloading.
This forced one of the cows to break loose and began chasing airport workers present on the tarmac.
The drama did not last for too long as those on ground were able to bring the wayward cow under control.
The cows have successfully been loaded into waiting vehicles for their transportation to Ekiti state.
The government imported the cows in partnership with a private organisation for their dairy farm in Ikun.
