what seems to be mild drama last Saturday unfolded when a strange goat walked into the newsroom of the Delta state owned newspapers, The Pointer and temporarily put a hold to the day’s activities
Reporters said that the goat which went straight into the newsroom refused to go away as security men attached to the company tried to drive it off. The workers said it only moved when one of the onlookers suggested that the visitor’s tag be hung on his neck.
While the security men battled to send the strange goat away, eye witnesses said that workers at the newspaper house scampered to different directions within the premises when the goat sniffed and coughed noisily before wandering over to the security department with he visitor’s tag on its neck.
But by the time the goat was apprehended and tag about to be removed, an old woman who claimed to be the owner of the goat emerge.
Sources said that the woman confessed to be the owner of the goat, and that she sends it on errand for their witches’ coven and to perform dirty jobs.
According to the woman who refused to give her name, “I have forgotten it is day time. It is my goat , and don’t be surprised how it crosses the road to the newsroom, it talks in the night, and whenever I send it on errand, it does it for me.”
The woman’s confession attracted passers-by including workers of the newspaper company and paralyzed working activities until the police arrived at the scene to take away the goat and the woman.
