Aisha Ibrahim was involved in an auto-accident in Port Harcourt, Nigeria.,but the case particularly attracted the media attention because an unusual occurrence was attributed to her.
Eyewitnesses said she was hit by a car as a cat, but later transformed into a woman. As the story goes three cats were crossing the busy road when an okada (motorcycle taxi) ran over. One of them immediately turned into a woman. This strange occurrence quickly attracted people around who descended on the scene. A crowd soon gathered, accused her of being a witch and began to beat her up using whatever they came with or could lay their hands on right there. Finally, policemen arrived at the spot and fenced her away from the attackers that wanted her dead.
However,another witness gave a completely different account of the incident. He said “I saw the accident as it happened, I saw the car hitting a woman. I didn’t see any cat and it was surprising when everybody said she was a cat and started beating her up instead of helping her.”
