A traditional healer (witchdoctor) was paid $15,000 to dispose of a goblin a local businessman had captured and wanted to be rid of once it started making extreme demands. According to stories collected from the scene of an explosion, the lead witchdoctor beheaded the goblin. As the businessman went to get the money from his car, the witchdoctor called out that the goblin was "fighting back." Shortly thereafter, a mysterious blast rocked the house, damaging a dozen other homes nearby.
The goblin was apparently supposed to improve the businessman's finances. At least one eyewitness claims some victims expired due to the blast and all reports indicate that several were injured.
