Residents of a small town in Nigeria, have fled in panic after a chicken began talking in Arabic before being slaughtered, police said.

Benue State Police said that the incident of the talking chicken occurred at a local market in Makurdi.

Residents living near the Wadata Market, fled as the news of the talking chicken spread like fire. “I heard that the police have taken the chicken into their possession, and that is why the police station is so crowded. Everybody wants to see the chicken talk,” a woman who identified herself as Aishetu, said.

As the residents crowded the local roads police shot tear gas to disperse the crowd and clear the roadways for normal traffic. This was not the first time that an animal began to talk before being killed.

Zalman Rosen, and his worker Luis Nivelo of New York, said that they were about to kill a fish when it began shouting at them. “It said ‘watch out’ and ‘the end is coming,’” Rosen said.

Rosen admitted that in a state of panic he tried to kill the fish, injuring himself in the process and ending up in a hospital. The fish was finally killed by Nivelo and sold.
