Nigeria: Goat charged with robbery
Posted on Saturday 24 January 2009 - 08:10

Police in Kwara State of Southern Nigeria paraded a goat suspected of taking part in a robbery incident on Wednesday. The Police Public Relations Officer, Tunde Mohammed, said the goat is being held in custody because it was a suspected human robber that transformed itself into it to escape arrest.

Mohammed said the mysterious goat is an armed robber who unsuccessfully made attempts to steal a Mazda car and later transformed himself into a goat in his bid to escape arrest.

He said the armed robber was arrested by members of a vigilante group in Anifowose Ipata/Oloje while they were chasing two other armed robbers. “While one of them escaped, the other was about to be apprehended by the team when he turned his back on the wall and turned to this goat. They quickly grabbed the goat and here it is,” the Nigerian Vanguard Newspaper quoted Mohammed.

Mohammed assured that the suspected “goat robber” will not be released until they conclude their investigations.

In most parts of Nigeria young men form vigilante groups to protect their people, lives and properties in their communities. Most people believed that these men possess supernatural powers to arrest criminals and reduce crime rate. They are widely recognized by state authorities while others prefer them to the Nigerian Police force.

* note: should be noted--and mostly 'cause i really want to post these awesome neal adams covers from the early 70's--that there was a time, on the heels of the huge spike in sales on brave and the bold when it became a strictly batman tea-up book, that dc tried to do the same with world's finest, pairing supes with flash, green lantern, the teen titans...this lasted for about two years, but reverted to the bats/supes team-ups when wf's sales didn't follow suit.

I wouldn't turn myself into a goat for anything less than a Lexus.

And, yeah. I want to live in that world too. That's why I read comic books and play City of Heroes.
