Sokoto metropolis occupants are yet to reconcile with the unbelievable incident that took place in the city lately. That was when a sheep gave birth to a Half-human Monster-like Creature at a government owned veterinary clinic in the Sokoto State capital.
On Monday the 22nd of January this year at about 5pm local time, residents were brought the shocking news of a sheep that gave birth to a half-human monster-like creature. The monstrous being was discovered during a surgical operation carried out on the sheep by Veterinary surgeons in the state.
Daily Sun learnt that the failure of the sheep to give birth made it essential for a surgical operation to be carried out on the sheep. That was when the sheep was delivered of the monster baby that looked half-human. The event which took place at Fakon Idi Veterinary Clinic drew thousands of spectators that trooped out from different parts of the metropolis to have a look at the strange creature that has been delivered.
It took the intervention of men of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NCDSC) in the state to dissolve the colossal crowd who were demanding that the owner of the animal should come out to enlighten them on what led to the mystery birth even as they maintained that the owner must be investigated and probably executed. Some of the eye witnesses who spoke with the Daily Sun probed the event that led to the detection of the monster-like lamb, with many arguing that a man might have had a sexual affair with the animal.
According to Garba Aminu, a commercial motorcycle rider, “This is an abomination in our land. To see a sheep give birth to a half human being is a mystery and that shows how terrible some people are. It is unimaginable that some people will be having intercourse with animals.”
Another observer, who merely gave his name as Danladi, pondered how such a development could have transpired in a morally upright state like Sokoto where the Islamic faith is so deep.
When the Sun News correspondent sought official response to the mystery birth, the surgeons that carried-out the operation had a different view. Deputy Zonal Director, Veterinary Clinic in the state Ministry of Forestry and Animal Health, Dr. Ismail Usman, discredited the tales going about that the sheep was delivered of a human-like being.
“It was a surprise that people’s perspective could be so negative when it comes to scientific reasoning and thoughts. In fact, the meaning attached to the development on the pregnant sheep by the onlookers was embarrassing.” Dr. Usman stated.
He explained that the sheep was supposed to have been delivered two days earlier but could not, a condition that he termed as uncommon amongst animals, particularly sheep.
His words: “When they brought the animal down to our office here, it was discovered that the sheep had some problems during its pregnancy. That was responsible for the abnormal growth and the shape of the inborn lamb.”
He directed all owners of livestock in the state to take the health of their animals very seriously, remarking that there are sufficient veterinary personnel in the state to attend to their health cases.
“Bringing animals for antenatal exercise would be a great help in curtailing any abnormalities during pregnancies.”
Another expert, Dr. Dahiru Sani who was one of the surgeons that carried out the operation on the controversial sheep said infections such as German measles, excess drugs and radiation could cause such deformities in animal pregnancy.
According to him, “every layman would believe that such a picture is a human-like animal, but in science, it is just a condition that caused the incident.”
