The strange happening stirred up confusion and controversy as those who claimed they saw it happened, insisted it was true, while cynics wondered how the claim could be true. They were nevertheless enthralled by a daunting evidence of blood stained pieces of raw gold presented by the eyewitnesses.
According to residents, many of whom spoke on condition of anonymity, the development disrupted the ceremony, as guests for whom the goat was slaughtered went back to their homes in fear and embarrassment. The goat owned by a yet-to-be identified old woman who had given it out to a friend.
The woman whom the goat was given, it was gathered, had reared it for several years after which it did not reproduce. She, however, got tired of rearing the goat and sold it to the people who needed it for the ceremony.
