On 22 January, 2011, in a government a owned veterinary clinic at Fakon Idi Veterinary Clinic, a sheep gave birth to a monstrous being. When it was discovered that it was difficult for the sheep to deliver, that was point when the need for the surgeons to carry out the operation. On delivering, the surgeons were amazed by sight of the monster baby that looked half-human.
Garba Aminu, a commercial motorcycle rider, averred: “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 onlooker, who simply gave his name as Danladi, wondered how such a development could happen in a morally upright state like Sokoto where the Islamic faith is so deep.
