A Nigerian jail is housing a rather unusual criminal - A black and white goat. His crime? - Attempted car robbery!

It all began when a few locals, part of a neighborhood patrol, saw two troublemakers trying to steal a Mazda 323. While one ran away, the other simply used his magical powers and transformed himself into a goat!

The vigilantes of course had no choice but to arrest the goat and take him to the police station, who promptly placed it in custody.

Now that the story has made headlines all over the world, the police are denying that they believe the vigilante's story or that the goat is under arrest. They claim, they are only holding him in custody, until the rightful owner comes along.

While the whole incident may seem bizarre to us, belief in black magic is quite strong in Nigeria and a lot of locals have been flocking to the jail, to catch a glimpse of the goat car thief, before he turns into a human again.
