A middle-aged man trading at the Onitsha main market, Obinna Adimora has been admitted into a private hospital following injuries inflicted on him by a Christmas cow in Awada area of Onitsha yesterday. Trouble started for Obinna when tenants in a commercial building located in Ben Aghaeze Street contributed money and bought a live cow for Christmas merriment. Daily Sun gathered that the cow was purchased at the popular Ugwuoba cattle market near Awka at the cost of N120, 000 while the tenants planned to kill the cow on December 25 morning and the meat shared in equal proportion among the contributors.
