A source in the community said that the suspect took the goat belonging to his neighbour, into a bush where he had sex with it and was caught by someone who went into the bush to defecate
“He picked the goat from a neighbour’s house and took it into the bush. He pulls off his clothes and started having sex with it.
After the sex, he brought out a handkerchief to clean up his semen from the goat’s vagina when he was caught by somebody who called on the neighbours to see what happened.”
It was gathered that the intervention of policemen who arrived the scene prevented the people who were bent on lynching him to death.
