Dog killed after teenager was caught having SEX with it

A teenager has been arrested after it was alleged that he had sex with a dog.

Named only as Osagiator, the 19-year-old is reported to have taken the dog to a construction site where he was spotted by an onlooker.

As a result of the perceived shame brought on the community, the dog has been killed.

George Ogbonmwan said that he thought the teen was trying to steal the dog so he called owner Garuba Samari over.

But when they approached Osagiator they realised what was going on in the building site in Iguosa, Nigeria.

Mr Ogbonmwan told Nigerian publication Punch : "When I saw the way the young man carried the dog like a baby, I decided to tell the owner.

“I advised him to go towards the uncompleted building but as he went to the building, he caught the boy sleeping with his dog."

Osagiator told investigators that he was from Benin and he was trying to find work.

He said that the dog followed him and he did not know what came over him to decide to have sex with it.

He said, “I was walking along the street. I saw a dog following me and I carried it like a baby and, thereafter, I decided to take it to an uncompleted building where I did what I did to it.

“It was there that one man came into the building and arrested me.”

Mr Samari disowned his dog following the incident after it was described by an elder as 'an abomination against the community'.

Noble Uwoh, Edo State Police public relations officer, said Osagiator had been arrested and investigations were ongoing.
