African Goat Held On Suspicion Or Armed RobberyAfrican%20Goat%20Held%20On%20Suspicion%20Or%20Armed%20Robbery

If he could speak, he'd likely claim he was being used as a scapegoat, but alas, a goat who is being held on suspicion of attempted armed robbery in Nigeria will have a hard time mounting his own defence.

The goat was turned over to police by vigilantes, who claim the person responsible for trying to steal a Mazda 323 used black magic to turn himself into a goat.

Kwara state police spokesperson Tunde Mohammed said an angry group of citizens chased two hoodlums who were attempted to rob a car.  They told police that one apparently got away, but the other transformed into the animal currently being held.

Mohammed admits he would like to see more proof, and less hoof, telling reporters that he can't base his information on something mystical.  But the goat is being held until they can clear things up.

There have also been reports that the suspect tried to grow a goatee in an effort to further disguise himself, but that hasn't been confirmed by police.

Nigerian police are holding a goat on suspicion of attempted armed robbery - amid claims it used black magic to morf from a human to escape justice.

Goats

Nigerian Police are holding the goat while they complete inquiries

Vigilantes took the animal to police, claiming it had been a person trying to steal a Mazda 323.

"The group of vigilante men came to report that while they were on patrol they saw some hoodlums attempting to rob a car," Kwara state police spokesman Tunde Mohammed said.

"They pursued them. However one of them escaped while the other turned into a goat.

"We cannot confirm the story, but the goat is in our custody."

He went on: "We cannot base our information on something mystical. It is something that has to be proved scientifically, that a human being turned into a goat."

Belief in witchcraft is widespread in parts of Nigeria, Africa's most populous nation.

People have been flocking to the police station to see the goat, photographed in one national newspaper on its knees next to a pile of straw.

"Police in the state couldn't immediately be reached for comment although a reporter who is regularly given police records stated that a squirrel had came in late in the evening and bailed the goat out."
