Real ‘Werewolf in Nigeria’ video is a hoax, dummy used for flick

A now viral video is making the rounds that many say is a real sighting of a real werewolf in Africa who was apparently shot … but the whole thing is BS.

The clip that made people buzz appeared out of nowhere this week, showing the body of a Lycan – a subspecies of a werewolf in monster mythology – lying dead on the floor in the middle of the night, bleeding from his face … lie motionless.

There is a man who narrates who appears to be speaking in Hausa – which people understood to mean that this alleged murder took place somewhere in Nigeria … and it matters to everyone.

Various users saw this and spread it like wildfire – warned locals in the area to keep a lookout, raised the alarm without really questioning the source … or its veracity. Fortunately, someone came to the table with the truth – and that would be … this is a big, fat joke!

The clip everyone is watching is dubbed as the original is actually part of what appears to be a short film from Portugal called “Lobisomem Morto a Tiros” … which translates as “Werewolf shot to death”. Very original, we know. It was released on April 1st by a user named Cloud Wolf … who devoted an entire YT page to the legendary creature.

How the hell does this thing look so real … it counts for great SFX work, courtesy of the freelance sculptor Joseph-Rob Cobasky – who has photos on his IG with his creation on the table (Frankenstein style). Obviously it’s top notch work – especially since everyone thought it was the real McCoy. Proof of the quality indeed.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram media.

The make-up team at An American Werewolf in London is likely nodding with glee – because Joseph’s attitude towards a werewolf isn’t all that different what they cooked in ’81.

Anyway, nothing to see here folks – back to the Bigfoot and Loch Ness sightings please.
