A Tanzanian man faced a new world of misfortune after he stole a bag of maize from a farmer in a village near Dar Es Salaam.

Frank Japhet, 23, endured this unique level of horror after the 20kg bag of maize stuck to his head.

According to Tuko, the farmer Japhet revealed that he had stolen the bag from a woman on Wednesday and the bag has been stuck to his head and neck ever since.

Locals believe that she used juju to protect her property as the thief was only able to relieve himself after surrendering himself to the police who then escorted him back to the farmer.
