The metal structure appeared last weekend, but after several days of taking selfies and throwing stones at it, the residents decided to destroy it over aliens' fears or secret societies with mysterious practices such as the Illuminati.
Residents of the Bandal neighborhood interviewed by news agency Reuters said that they "woke up and saw this metallic triangle," as they "were surprised because it is a triangle that we often see in documentaries about freemasons or Illuminati."
Similar structures were spotted last year in Utah, the United States, Russia, Germany, the Netherlands, Australia, Sweden, the UK, Spain, Turkey, and Poland. The events have sparked a range of conspiracy theories, although it resembles the plot of movies such as the 1986 film 2001: A Space Odyssey and the 2016 movie Arrival. In these plots, alien-looking monoliths appeared across the planet and ultimately contributed to the evolution of humankind.
According to Reuters, Bandal neighbors said that they saw people digging a hole at the roundabout on Saturday. Nonetheless, local mayor Bayllon Gaibene told the BBC that samples of the monolith were sent to the scientists to study its origins.
