…’It’s manna from God to cushion Covid-19 stress’

BARELY two weeks after residents of  Finima, Bonny Island and environs, Rivers State, were inundated with a swarm of dead croakers washed ashore from the banks of the Atlantic Ocean, the community has again welcomed another sea  animal.

As it were with the dead croakers, which found their way into fishermen’s pots of soups  and  consumers, who bought from markets in defiance of Rivers State government warning against  consumption, some residents, on discovering the strange sea animal on Friday, have been chopping off its flesh  for consumption.

In a video footage of   the sea animal, residents were seen cutting the carcass, which the voice in the picture  identified  as a “wild whale”. The strange mammal was still seen wiggling parts of its body like a larger than life octopus.

Peter Awajis, from neighboring Andoni, told  Sunday Vanguard: “This is a natural occurrence every year. Ask any native of Finima, Bonny Local Government Area (LGA), Nembe, Brass, (Bayelsa State) and especially people in Oyorokoto, Andoni LGA fishing ports of Rivers, they will tell you the same thing.

“It is not new and can’t be linked to recent dead croakers in our waters. This wild whale is original manna from God to cater for the poor, especially in the season of  corona  virus.

“Last year, same incident occurred in Nembe, Bayelsa State, and in less than three days before the Bayelsa Ministry of Health could mobilize to the scene, what was left was a mere carcass of the animal.”
