A Nigerian man was arrested for allegedly having sex with a goat – but insisted he asked the animal’s permission first.

Malam Kamisu Baranda, 20, was handed over to Jigawa State Police Command by the head of his village for having sexual intercourse with the animal in the Baranda forest, in the Dutse Local Government Area, according to the Daily Times.

The chief magistrates’ court ordered for the man to be remanded in prison for two weeks while they investigated the incident, the newspaper reported.

Baranda is said to have admitted that the goat belonged to him and said that he had asked the animal to have sexual intercourse with him.

He said he had engaged in sex with animals “over 10 times” because it “satisfied his demand”, but had never previously been arrested.

Baranda allegedly called on the court to bring him to justice because “he knows that what he did was an offence to a society and against the Islamic injunctions”.
