image for Boy transformed into large Yam!
The child before he was 'Yammed'

Nigerian police are investigating a bizarre claim that a boy has been turned into a yam by a witchdoctor.

Officers have even taken a large yam into custody.

Three schoolboys in Maiduguri told their headteacher their friend had been transformed into a vegetable in front of their eyes after accepting a sweet from a stranger.

As word spread about the schoolboy yam, hundreds of curious people began flocking to the police station to catch a glimpse of it.

This is not an isolated case, as just a few weeks ago, another child was reported to have been transformed into a large goat.

Parents are being urged to keep their children indoors, as the police are still investigating these claims.

Make Henman's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
