An apprentice, Peter David, was caught making love to a pregnant goat at an uncompleted building in a neighbourhood in Owode Quarters, Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State.
David, who claimed to be a Benue State indigene was caught in the act following the bleating of the goat which drew the attention of residents and officials of the Benin Electricity Distribution Company on duty at the quarters on Wednesday morning.
According to the resident, the goat was helpless for about two hours after the incident as it foamed in the mouth and bled in the private parts.
A resident, Mrs Oluwasola Ayodele, said the BEDC officials drew her attention to the incident while she, in turn, called others to witness the act she described as an abomination.
Police later arrived at the scene and took away the man and the goat.
Ekiti State police command spokesman, Sunday Abutu, who confirmed the incident, said, “Men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad Department arrested a man that was sleeping with goat in the neighbourhood.
“He was interrogated and he confessed that he engaged in the act. He further said he had been doing such before he came from Ondo State. We are still interrogating him for more information as to why he is doing such. He will possibly be charged.”
