Ekiti in Ekiti SouthWest Local Government Area was on Tuesday thrown into confusion when information filtered that a goat had delivered a human-like baby goat.
Olori-Oko community is about three kilometres to Ikeji Arakeji in Osun State.
Residents of the community and people from the neighbouring village trooped out on Tuesday to catch a glimpse of the strange creature.
The goat was said to have delivered a ‘mystery human baby’ around 6am on Tuesday having fallen into labour around 8pm on Monday.
Our correspondent learnt that some residents took to their heals on sighting the strange creature.

A community leader, who spoke on behalf of the Village Head, Mr. Ganiyu Adetokun, (name not given) said a Pastor, Daniel Odedele, came to the rescue of the goat when it became clear that it needed help to deliver the kid.
He said: “The ‘baby goat’ has human look, hair, head and female genitals. We were attracted to the scene as people raised the alarm”.
The creature died close to an hour after as the people scrambled to catch a glimpse and take its picture.
The man said: “We shall report the incident to the Ologotun of Ogotun Ekiti, Oba Samuel Oyebade. The village will offer sacrifice to appease the gods of the land to ward off evil”.
The Chairman, Commercial Motorcycle Association in the village, Mr. Saheed Oladepo a.k.a ‘Akanmu’, said his members had brisk business as many people came to see the strange creature from nearby communities.
It was learnt that the police and operatives of the Ekiti State Peace Corps had visited the village to ascertain facts about the strange creature.
