There was a commotion at the Orientation camp of the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) in Ogun State as a marauding cow invaded the parade ground, as seen in a video.
Corps members were having a parade competition when the cow disrupted the event, forcing people to scamper about.
The incident happened on Wednesday morning at the state camp located at Ikenne Road, Sagamu.
In the video, the cow appears to be spoiling for a fight and looking for an object to attack.
It took the intervention of military officers and some brave corps members to catch and subdue it.
Capturing the cow also resulted in wild jubilation in the camp.
There has been a raging controversy in Nigeria over the management of cattle, which has cost many lives and led to the displacement of many others from their homes.
Fulani herdsmen have been blamed for killing and raping people on their farms as part of a larger plan to take their land.
Many people have suggested ranching but the nomadic farmers and the Nigerian government have failed to show any zeal in that regard, reducing the country to a place where cattle are free to stray everywhere.
