A sleepy Nigerian town was on Tuesday thrown into confusion when its residents found out that a goat had delivered a human-like baby goat.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the incident drew the attention of hundreds of residents and travellers.

The spokesman of the community who spoke with a NAN correspondent on behalf of the community head, said a pastor helped to deliver the goat's baby.

"After watching the goat labour for several hours, the pastor took pity on it and courageously pulled the baby out, only for it to turn out to be human-like.

"The 'baby' had all the features of a human being  such as human face, head, hair, female genitals, two legs and two arms with hooves.

"However, the human-like baby died at about noon as a result of lack of care as the crowd merely trooped there to watch rather than to attempt to save its life," Ogunmeji said.

A resident told NAN that immediately after the goat delivered the 'human-like baby', it took to its heels.

He added that it took more than two hours to capture the goat.
