Nigerian Police arrest goat!!!
Now this thing happened since Jan, and I didn't know.
First of all, huh?!!!! I thought we had heard it all...
This is what happened. According to the source, the black and white goat was brought to the Police station by the local Vigilante. The vigilante said that the goat was actually an armed robber who turned himself to a goat in order to escape.
Of course as Nigerians we are all aware of what is known as juju or jazz, thanks to Nollywood and other things. So it may not sound strange to hear of a man turning to a goat, afterall we all know the (fake) story of the person that was turned to a yam, and when the woman who had bought the yam from the market wanted to cut it, it started crying,'pls don't cut me!' , some versions say the yam started singing...lol! that story scared me so much back then, that i never looked at yam the same way again...but...
What is absurd and embarrassing is that not only did the police detain the goat for questioning, the NTA reporter covering the gist actually put the mic. infront of the goat expecting it to talk! Seriously?!!!
Where did this happen? Kwara State.
If you doubt this gist like i did, kindly Google, 'goat arrested in Nigeria' and see the amount of results you'll get! and guess what? On top of the list is BBC News, infact it's only foreign websites that are on page 1.
Shame don begin to dey catch you? as for me, shame no fit catch me again...
