Panic And Confusion As Goat Delivers Strange Human In Ekiti

The sleepy town of Ogotu-Ekiti in Ekiti SouthWest Local Government Area, of western Nigeria was on Tuesday thrown into confusion when news spread that a goat had delivered a human-like kid.

The strange incident, which occurred in OLori Oke settlement, a village that is about 10 kilometres from Ogotun town, drew the attention of hundreds of residents and travellers.

Olori-Oko community is about three kilometers to Ikeji Arakeji in Osun State.

Residents of the community and people from the neighboring villages trooped out to catch a glimpse of the strange creature.

The goat was said to have delivered a ‘mystery human baby’ around 6 am on Tuesday having fallen into labor around 8 pm on Monday.

It learnt that some residents took to their heels on sighting the strange creature.

The spokesman of the community, Sunday Ogunmeji, who spoke on behalf of the Baale (community head), Ganiyu Adetoun, said a pastor, Mr Daniel Odedele, helped to deliver the goat of the baby

“After watching the goat labor for several hours, the pastor took pity on it and courageously pulled the baby out, only for it to turn out to be human-like. The `baby’ had all the features of a human being such as human face, head, hair, female genitals, two legs and two arms with hoofs.

“However, the human-like baby died at about noon as a result of lack of care as the crowd merely trooped there to watch rather than to attempt to save its life,’’ Ogunmeji said.

A resident, Mr Saidi Oladepo, who is a commercial motorcycle (Okada) operator, told a source that immediately the goat delivered the `human-like baby’, it took to its heels.

He said that as soon as members of the community got wind of the incident, they ran helter-skelter in apparent confusion.

He said alarm was raised and the local security agents, referred to as `Peace Corps’, were alerted to the incident.

The traditional ruler of Ogotun-Ekiti, Oba Samuel Oyebode, could not be reached for comment as he was said to be in a meeting of the Traditional Council.

The creature died close to an hour after as the people scrambled to catch a glimpse and take its picture.
