Some credit this unusual occurrence to retaliatory witchcraft. Indeed, the motorcycle had been stolen shortly before the bees’ arrival. The victim of the theft, the motorcycle’s owner, reportedly visited a witchdoctor for assistance in getting the bike back. Shortly after, bees attached themselves to the motorcycle in a marketplace.
The bees swarmed the bike for over an hour, eventually dispersing after the motorcycle’s rightful owner arrived at the scene.
Local authorities insist that the bees didn’t arrive magically; instead, the bike swarm was a natural (albeit unusual) event. Some have speculated that the bees flocked to the bike because the hive’s queen got stuck in the handlebars.
Regardless of the cause, the bees played a part in restoring the motorcycle to its rightful owner.
