Rioters accuse owner of sex with sheep

Security services mobilised as thousands gather outside research centre


POLICE were called in to disperse angry demonstrators calling for the death of a farmer who presented a 'half human-half sheep' like creature to veterinary experts.

The furious mob in Sokoto accused the man of having sex with sheep and creating the monster.

The deformed creature was cut from the sheep's womb at a government owned veterinary clinic in the Sokoto State capital.

The inability of the sheep to deliver made it necessary for the surgeons to carry out the operation, after which word spread across the the town that 'a monster baby that looked half-human' had been delivered.

Thousands of demonstrators in the strict muslim city gathered outside and it took the intervention of men of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NCDSC) in the state to disperse the huge crowd who were demanding that the owner of the animal should come out to explain what led to the mystery birth even as they insisted that the owner must be probed and possibly executed.

Garba Aminu, a commercial motorcycle rider, said: “This is an abomination in our land. To see a sheep give birth to a half human being is a mystery and that shows how terrible some people are. It is unimaginable that some people will be having intercourse with animals.”

Another onlooker, who simply gave his name as Danladi, wondered how such a development could happen in a morally upright state like Sokoto where the Islamic faith is so deep.

But senior veterinarian at the Ministry of Forestry and Animal Health, Dr. Ismail Usman, said it was embarrassing that so many people believed the aborted animal to be half human.

He added: “It was a surprise that people's perspective could be so negative when it comes to scientific reasoning and thoughts. In fact, the meaning attached to the development on the pregnant sheep by the onlookers was embarrassing.

“When they brought the animal down to our office here, it was discovered that the sheep had some problems during its pregnancy. That was responsible for the abnormal growth and the shape of the inborn lamb.”
