Suspect Turned Into a Goat!

In Lagos, Nigeria one of their biggest daily newspapers recently reported that police implicated a goat in an attempted automobile theft. Vanguard newspaper reported that “two men tried to steal a Mazda car two days earlier in Kwara State, with one suspect transforming himself into a goat as vigilantes cornered him.”

As reported in this article, the newspaper quoted policeman Tunde Mohammed saying that while one suspect escaped, the other transformed into a goat as he was about to be apprehended. Belief in black magic is widespread in Nigeria, especially in rural areas.

Was this a shape-shifting human to a goat, a high policeman - or something else? What do you think?

That is really weird. You would never see that in an American newspaper would you? LOL!!! Hmm I think the guy really believed he saw that but if he really did........ i dunno?

Huh... well that explains a lot now.
Now everytime I pass by a goat I'm going to think it's someone hiding from the police.

I do believe some kind black magic exist, why not? it's maybe a bit uncommon in the states. But familiar in some other parts of the world : Africa, Asia, Latin America. You know there's a big case in Indo a few years ago, this kid who's mean to her mom, was cursed so she turned into a stingray. Died a few days later.

Damn scary, I didn't believe until I watched some videos.

so this thing in Lagos might be possible, although it could also be caused by a very high policeman.
