[Pics] 46 Years Old Married Man Caught Having Sex with a Sheep in Ebonyi

hehehehe another Magun
Read after the cut



One Kelechi Nnali, a 46-year-old man from Nkpogoro, Ndibe in Afikpo North Local Government Area of Ebonyi State has been allegedly caught having sexual intercourse with a sheep along the roadside in the community over the weekend. Nnali, who is married with two wives and children, was reported to have pleaded with the boy who saw him committing the crime not to tell anybody, promising that he would give him N10, 000 and a handset. However, Nnali had reneged on his promise and the cat was let out of the bag.

Hearing of the act of bestiality committed by Mr. Nwali, the elders of the community reported to have summoned him to answer to the allegation; the matter was subsequently taken to Ogo Ezinwachi Play ground where delicate and public matter are usually discussed.

Mr. Nnali was eventually sanctioned according to the law of the land and the elders, who were visibly angry with the depraved act, stressed that the man had committed an abomination in the land and must pay the price according to the law of the land. Also, it was gathered that to cleanse the land of the abominable act, elderly women of Ndibe had last weekend performed a traditional ablution called Npkompko in Mr. Nnali’s compound.

Meanwhile, Nnali was reported to have fled the community for fear of being lynched by irate youths of the area.
