A device suspected to be a land mine has exploded in Anguwan Shekarau, Kachia Local Government Area, Kaduna state killing a nine-year-old herder, Samaila Alhassan and three cows.

The boy was reportedly tending a herd of cattle in a grazing field when a cow stepped on the device before it exploded.

It was not clear yet how the device was built and deployed in the area but military personnel have conducted several firearms training exercises on their shooting range few kilometers away from the blast scene.

Chairman of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria in Kaduna Alhaji Ahmadu Suleiman confirmed the blast. He said “a device exploded and killed a Fulani boy and three cows while several other cows were injured.”
