For Segun so loved his goat that he gave up his life while rescuing it from a well.

Perhaps they shared some deep affection which made him pay the ultimate price.

42-year-old livestock farmer, Segun Onagunwa, was recovered from a well on his farm in the Egbeda area of Lagos after he tried to rescue his goat.

The body was drawn from the well by the Lagos State Fire Service and handed over to police authorities from the Gowon Estate Police Division.

The goat broke loose from its tether and fell into the well.

Onagunwa in an attempt to rescue the goat, used a ladder to get into the well but got drowned.

The goat also didn't make it.
