The Ijaw-Kiri, a community in the riverine area of Brass Local Government of Bayelsa State, was overjoyed after a huge dead whale was swept across-shore at the early hours of Sunday morning.
According to reports, the dead whale was found at the beach in the shaws of Okpoama and Onyekia communities. The images of the grounded whale (fish) have been making the rounds since it was first shared.
On siting the dead whale, many residents immediately raced home to bring out axes, knives, and cutlasses, slaughtering the huge fish an endangered species.
Many neighboring communities of Odioma and Okpoama were said to have rushed down to the shore to partake in the feast.
The Whale was butchered with a chain saw, cutlass as the resident wheeled off a bucket of whale meat in basins excitedly after it was washed ashore in Okpo. Some stood atop the massive creature, cutting its flesh. The water turned red as blood flowed from the whale’s body.
A man even came with a saw.
