According to Nigerian website Daily Times, the randy villager has been handed over to police and has been remanded in custody. However, he is adamant that he deserves to be freed as he asked the goat’s permission – and apparently it was happy to have consensual sex.

Perhaps tellingly, Mr Baranda chose to have his trysts in a forest near his home to ‘avoid embarrassment’, but he claims that he did not know that it was against the law to have intercourse with the goat.

He has been sentenced to two weeks in prison for his offence.
