The incident happened after the 36-year-old man was seen being chased around by a black goat which somehow raised suspicions among locals who accused him of juju.

They accused the man of transforming a human to a black goat which led to a mob action.

He was saved by security operatives on routine patrol around Rukpoku, according to the Nigerian newspaper Daily Post.

The police patrol team took the victim, the goat and two others to Rumuokoro police station where the man told his side of the story.

According to him, the goat was his pet.“I was strolling out of my compound only to realize that my goat was following," he narrated.

He continued: "Usually, it follows me whenever I am going out because I use to buy biscuit for it but this time I didn’t want it to follow me so I decided to run and try to dodge it. The goat’s name is Remember."

“I was surprised that people now thought I changed a human being to goat. How is that possible?” he queried.
