Man caught having sex with pregnant goat in Ekiti


A man, Peter David, has been caught having sexual knowledge of a goat at an umcompleted building in Owode Quarters in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State.

The apprentice claimed to be an indigene of Benue State.

He was caught after the goat drew the attention of some residents and officials of the Benin Electricity Distribution Company on duty at the quarters on Wednesday.

After the incident, the goat was said to have foamed in the mouth for two hours as it bled in the private part.

Mr David, whose age was not known at the time, alongside the goat were taken away by the police.

A resident, Oluwasola Ayodele, described the act as an ‘abomination’, saying the BEDC officials drew her attention to the incident while she in turn called others to witness the act.

Mrs Ayodele said she called for assistance when the man tried to escape through River Ofin to Ifeoluwa Community.

David was caught by a cleric, Gbenga Ajulo of Christ Apostolic Church, Throne of Mercy, Owode, who said he was praying in the church when he heard the goat’s continuous bleating.

“About seven minutes later, I heard somebody calling my name and shouting for help. I came out and saw the man trying to escape and I caught him,” he said.

“When we sat him down, we asked him what happened and he confessed that he was having sex with the goat. For about two hours, the goat was foaming in the mouth and bleeding in the private parts.

“This is a bad omen. It is evil. I suspect the act is for ritual. There is the need for cleansing. Beyond, all these strange diseases in society are from acts like this. He would have contacted diseases from having carnal knowledge of the goat.”

Chairman of the neighbouring Ifeoluwa Community, Abel Bankole, said a medical examination should be performed on the man.

Ekiti police spokesman, Sunday Abutu, said the suspect confessed “he had been doing such before he came from Ondo State.”

Mr Abutu also said the man would possibly be prosecuted at the end of interrogation.
