Master Miracle Oluebube Nweke is a 15- year old boy and member of Assemblies of God Church in Nnewichi-Nnewi. But he is a self-confessed deviant who enjoys having sex only with sheep. He was recently caught in the act, last Monday, by a friend who raised the alarm leading to his arrest and confession of his past escapades. Our Correspondent, Isaac Ojo, was at the scene where Master Miracle made his confessions and why he is engaged in zoophilia and bestiality. Enjoy!
Although, chapter 18, verse 23 of the Book of Leviticus commands thus: “And you shall not lie with any beast and defile yourself with it, neither shall any woman give herself to a beast to lie with it,” Master Miracle Oluebube Nweke, a 15-year old Christian is not bothered by such ordinance. At his age, he has not only been copulating but strangely so with animals which must be sheep.
The teenage boy, a native of Eziagu in Enugu state, last Monday confessed that he had been engaging in sodomy for a while but was never caught. He said he knew that it was not normal but that he could not help himself. He said anytime he had urge, a strange voice would lead him to where he would get a tethered sheep which he would loose and drag to an uncompleted building to have sex with it.
Miracle explained that on sighting any sheep, he would engage, first, in sexual fixation otherwise called zoophilia before graduating to raping it otherwise called bestiality or sodomy.
He was in the middle of the act this week in the South East when his friend cut his fun short and raised the alarm which made the vigilante operatives to go after him and arrested him.
Master Miracle was, specifically, arrested on Monday, January 18, this week by the Edoji, Uruagu-Nnewi vigilante group after which he was subjected to a round of investigation.
Who is Master Miracle?
Hear him: “I am the first of seven male children of my parents, I dropped out of school after my primary 6. I then started learning painting. But, that too is not going well.
“My father, Mr Sunday Nweke, is a trader at Fairly Used Market, Mgbuka in Nnewi while my mother, Mrs Ndide Nweke sells banana and groundnut in our neighborhood.
Miracle said he usually looks for sheep tied in the farms and bushes to graze whenever he has urge to have sex.
“Whenever I get any sheep of my choice, I untie it from the spot where the owner has left it and take the sheep to a secluded uncompleted building and have sex with it.
“I don’t do anything else with the sheep than that. I normally make sure that no one is around watching while doing it because I know that the owners of the sheep may not like it.
“But it gives me great pleasure whenever I have sex with sheep. I have never tried any other kind of animal to know the difference. My experience of having sex with sheep is sweet.”
Any affiliation with occultic groups?
The teenager also made it clear that he is a Christian of the Assemblies of God Church in Nnewichi-Nnewi who will not steal anything from anybody and that he does not belong to any cult but only have friends whom he plays football with.
He also exonerated his friends when he declared that they are not involved in having sex with sheep.
“The last time, our landlady accused me of stealing her money when she actually securely locked her doors and windows. How could I have entered her house?
“But I know she was just trying to eject my parents after the news got to her that I usually sleep with sheep which she considered atrocious. I don’t steal and I don’t molest children. I am not a criminal,” he explained.
Any previous engagements?
The 15-year old who boastfully said that he has been doing it for some time stated that his attraction is just for sheep and that he does not, in fact, have sexual urge toward women, men, children or any other kind of animal.
“This is not the first time I did it. Nobody would have known that I am into that if not that one of my friends, Dede, saw me this time around and raised the alarm and these people started pursuing me with their gun and I had to stop running because I did not want them to shoot me. If not they wouldn’t have caught me.”
He however blamed evil spirit for being responsible for his sexual depravity. “There is a spirit that normally tells me to go and look for sheep and whenever I hear the commanding voice of the spirit, it becomes irresistible for me to take away my eyes from sheep.
“I will be so restless and confused until after I have carried out the instruction of the
unseen spirit,” he narrated.
Asked if he has any regret now that he has been caught in the act, the boy answered in the affirmative but that he could not say categorically that he would not do it again.
Things however assumed a dramatic turn when the owner of the sheep who identified himself simply as Mr Uche from Nkpoka, Nnewichi-Nnewi told the vigilante operatives that he would not go home with the sheep again.
He demanded that the teenager who defiled his sheep must buy it. Uche argued that it would be misleading for anyone to think that the sheep is still normal after its encounter with Miracle.
“The best thing is to sell this sheep and its small baby to Miracle so that he can do whatever he wants with it. I cannot take them home again after their experience in his hand.
“I will only be deceiving myself if I believe my sheep is still normal. If I take them home and they start biting people, what would I do?
“Again, if the sheep later gives birth to a half man and half animal, what do you want me to tell the world?” Uche queried.
The vigilante operative, Okeke, when asked on what becomes of the arrested boy, said that he would be released to his parents after they have made adequate payment for the sheep that was raped by their son, noting that the 15-year old boy would not be handed over to the police.
“You will agree with me that this is not a criminal case and I don’t think it is necessary to start wasting our time and that of the police by taking this boy to the station.
“We will release him to his parents so that they can go and find spiritual solutions to his problems. This is more of a spiritual case than security matter.”
Mr and Mrs Nweke were however not available for comments as at the time of filing this report.
The Authority on Saturday reports that copulating with animals though is not new in history, it is, however, rare, an abomination and seriously frowned at.
Instances of this behaviour were not only found in the Bible but also in cave paintings from at least 8000 BC.
A book titled Sexual Behaviour in Human Male, authored by Alfred Kinsey, Wardell Pomeroy and Clyde Martin and published by Saunders in 1948 gave the percentage of people who had sexual interaction with animals at some points in their lives at 8% for men and 3.6% for women and claimed it was 40-50% in people living near farms.
Bestiality (Sodomy) has thus become a subject of discourse by several sciences including psychology (the study of human mind); sexology (the study of human sexuality); ethology (the study of animal behavior) and anthrozoology (the study of human-animal interactions and bonds.)
In many jurisdictions, all forms of sodomitical (zoophilic) acts are prohibited while in others, only the mistreatment of animals without specific mention of sexual activity is outlawed.
