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.
