15-year-old Miracle Oluebube Nweke was caught and arrested in Nnewi, Anambra State, for allegedly having sex with a sheep.
Miracle, who is a native of Eziagu in Enugu state, was caught by a friend in the very act of making love with the sheep and raised the alarm which led to his arrest by the vigilante operatives in the area.
He confessed that he had been having sex with the sheep for a while but was never caught. According to him, he always knew that the act was despeakable and was not normal but that he could not help himself. He went on to explain that whenever he the urge, a strange voice would lead him to get a tethered sheep which he would loosen and drag to an uncompleted building to have sex with it.
“I am the first of seven male children of my parents. I dropped out of school after my primary 6. I then started learning painting. But, that too is not going well.
“My father, Mr. Sunday Nweke, is a trader at Fairly Used Market, Mgbuka in Nnewi, while my mother, Mrs. Ndidi Nweke, sells banana and groundnut in our neighborhood.
“Whenever I get the urge for sex, I usually go to where sheep are tied and when I see any sheep of my choice, I untie it from the spot where the owner has left it and take the sheep to a secluded uncompleted building and have sex with it.
“This is not the first time I did it. Nobody would have known that I am into that if not that one of my friends, Dede, saw me this time around and raised the alarm and these people started pursuing me with their gun and I had to stop running because I did not want them to shoot me. If not they wouldn’t have caught me.
“I don’t do anything else with the sheep than that. I normally make sure that no one is around watching while doing it because I know that the owners of the sheep may not like it.
“But it gives me great pleasure whenever I have sex with sheep. I have never tried any other kind of animal to know the difference. My experience of having sex with sheep is sweet.
“I don’t do it for any occult purpose. I don’t belong to any cult either but there is a spirit that pushes me into doing it.
“There is a spirit that normally tells me to go and look for sheep and whenever I hear the commanding voice of the spirit, it becomes irresistible for me to take away my eyes from sheep.
“I will be so restless and confused until after I have carried out the instruction of the unseen spirit.”
The owner of the sheep, identified as Mr. Uche, told the vigilante operatives that he would not go home with the sheep again, demanding that Miracle buys the sheep and its lamb.

The head of the vigilante operative, Okeke, when asked on what will happen to Miracle, said it is not a criminal case and that the boy would be released to his parents after they have paid for the sheep that was defiled by their son.
“You will agree with me that this is not a criminal case and I don’t think it is necessary to start wasting our time and that of the police by taking this boy to the station. We will release him to his parents so that they can go and find spiritual solutions to his problems. This is more of a spiritual case than security matter.”
