Ilimu

In the Kikuyu tribe found in Kenya, there were stories about a shape shifting creature they called Ilimu.Compared to other werewolf, it is not a curse that turns a human to a shape-shifting monster, rather it is a demon that possesses the body of the animals and transform into a human form.
But for an Ilimu to transform into a human, he has to acquire a body tissue of a man such as a hair strand, nails or even blood.  He would the extract it and would end up as a perfect replica of the person he wishes to copy.  After successfully taking the appearance of a man, he would then kill that person and took over his life.  It would then live a life of a human and socialize within the community.
Ilimu is known to be very clever, to a point that it can even trick a witch doctor or a shaman into thinking that he is indeed a human.  Aside from Kenya, it is also known in the legends of different African communities which include Uganda and Ghana.
In the year 1898, two lions were suspected of being …
