Police in Nigeria are holding a goat on suspicion of attempted robbery.
Vigilantes seized the black and white goat, saying it was an armed robber who had used black magic to transform himself into an animal to escape after trying to steal a Mazda 323.
A spokeman for police in the eastern state of Kwara said: ‘The goat is in our custody. Vigilantes saw some hoodlums attempting to rob a car. One escaped while the other turned into a goat’.
