Residents of Owode Quarters in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State, were stunned on Wednesday when an apprentice, Peter David, was caught making love to a pregnant goat at an uncompleted building in the neighbourhood.

Ayodele said she called for assistance when the man wanted to escape through River Ofin to Ifeoluwa Community, but one Pastor Gbenga Ajulo caught him.


Ajulo, who is the minister in charge of Christ Apostolic Church, Throne of Mercy, Owode, said he was praying in the church when he heard the goat’s continuous bleating.

“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.” Punch
