The gang was discovered after a joint investigation by the RSPCA, the local Trading Standards department and the police.

The RSPCA became suspicious after it received multiple complaints about puppies bought through website, Pets4Homes around the Milton Keynes area in Buckinghamshire.

Although the puppies had arrived from different addresses, dozens of people were reporting similar concerns.

The animals were falling sick soon after arriving at their new homes and families were discovering their new pets had undisclosed health conditions, with three puppies dying.

In other cases, people would buy puppies because they felt sorry for them living in horrible conditions on the Willen Road travellers site in Newport Pagnell.

The herdsmen got angry and intended to attack the bus driver and conductor but ended up killing an onlooker. Benjamin in his statement debunked claims that the deceased ran to the police station for protection but was turned back.

”A commercial vehicle ran into two cows this morning at Agemowo, Badagry, killing one of the cows. The two cattle herders attacked someone they mistook for the vehicle conductor, resulting in his death. Angry residents blocked the highway in protest of the killing.

The DPO, Morogbo Division, assisted by soldiers from 243 Recce Battalion, Badagry successfully cleared the obstruction. Normalcy has since returned to the area. It is entirely false that the victim was turned back when he sought refuge in the police station.

He did not make it off the accident scene, let alone reach the station. Meanwhile, the two herders have been arrested. Investigation is ongoing. Updates will be provided subsequently.”
