Magic goat detained over armed robbery

LAGOS (Reuters) - Police in Nigeria are holding a goat on suspicion of attempted armed robbery.

Vigilantes took the black and white beast to the police saying it was an armed robber who had used black magic to transform himself into a goat to escape arrest after 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. They pursued them. However one of them escaped while the other turned into a goat," Kwara state police spokesman Tunde Mohammed told Reuters by telephone.

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

Belief in witchcraft is widespread in parts of Nigeria, Africa's most populous nation. Residents came to the police station to see the goat, photographed in one national newspaper on its knees next to a pile of straw.

"Poor kid" good one Withchiepoo!

Marion76 yes those fainting goats are a hoot.

It sounds like this is a case involving an animagus for sure.  I am joking of course.

They probably really thought there was something to it.  Those people really do take what they call "black magic" very seriously from what I understand.

I hope nothing happens to the goat.  They will be waiting awhile before it changes back to a human.   LOL

Lets hope they don't give him a death sentence.  Although, gyros are sounding pretty good for lunch right a bout now.   hu
