Man Forced to marry Sheep he was caught having sex with

A 26-year-old man, Akwasi Salifu, have been told he must marry a neighbour’s sheep he was caught having sex with on February 22nd, GhanaWeb reports.
The animal owner, Madam Rukai, who insisted that Salifu, an indigene of Asuodei in the Ahafo Ano South District of the Ashanti region, prepare to perfume the marriage rites, said it is necessary because the sheep is now pregnant.
Madam Rukai, speaking to a local reporter on Wednesday 28, hinted it this was not the first time it was happening, as another sheep of hers had six months ago, given birth to a human like lamb.
This delivery according to her attracted some sanctions from the traditional leader of her community who considered the occurrence an abomination.
“I paid lot of money at the chief’s palace, I was disgraced and the whole community said it was my son who had intercourse with the sheep. But it was not my son. My son does not leave in this community,” she stated.
Narrating what had transpired, the elderly woman said: “Last Thursday [22 February 2018], around 12:00 am, we were in our room when my husband heard strange noise from the pen so he went out to check.
“When he got there, he saw Salifu having sex with one of the sheep. So we arrested him, we have his trousers, mobile phone, sandals and keys to his motorbike.
“His family accepted the misconduct and promised to bring leaders to settle the issue, but they rather told the boy to run from the community. The issue is now with the chief. The boy has confirmed that he had an intercourse with the sheep. I will make him pay back the monies I was ordered to pay when the other sheep gave birth to the human-like lamb some months past,” She indicated.
