Question: My Question is if some where a government banned slaughtering animal (Ox/Cow) is it permissible to slaughter animal for Aqeeqa ?
Do you mean to say: There is a ban on slaughtering ox and cow while there is no such ban on lambs or goats? If this is correct, then you shouldn't sacrifice a cow or an ox; rather you should sacrifice lamb or goat. First of all,  we should remembert that the Prophet (peace be upon him) never slaughtered cows rather he killed sheep or goats.
If the animal sacrifice is not allowed, then you may skip Aqiqah and give some charity instead to thank Allah for His wonderful gift.
