    Wait, this makes sense.

    A fish from there tried to convince me to help it export a container of caviar that belonged to the former governor of Abuja.

    Oh wait...

    Wait, it wasn`t the police exactly, it was the "vigilante" group who just handed it over to the police and then told the media the story before the police figured out why they were handed a goat. Some of the police seemed to have believed it, but it looks like for the most part they knew it wasn`t a shape-shifting goat...
    Whatever the case may be, as it said in the article, this illuminates many problems that third world countries experience, lack of education, lack of police/order, etc.

    "But of course goats can`t commit crime."

    What drating goats have they been around? I once had my car vandalized by a few goats.


    And I`m glad to see NIgeria get any attention... any.

    I think its very plausible that they believe it.

    Witchcraft is such a huge part of a lot of Nigerian Christianity.. At the top of it, its power and money (IMO) which fuels it - the idea of witchcraft in contemporary culture comes a lot from a woman at the top of the Church (which also makes loads of money out of `curing` it). Look up the child witches in Nigeria, really really tragic reading.

    "Africa is like 2000 years behind the rest of us."

    Yes... thats why they don`t have professional doctors and lawyers at `our` standards. Thats why they don`t have schools, universities, armies, phones and the internet. Thats why I spent five years of my life in South Africa living in a mud hut instead of a house with a garden and swimming pool. Bloody hell.
