Fishermen in Samanaji town in Koko Besse Local Government Area of Kebbi State, trapped and killed a Hippopotamus said to be wrecking havoc on Farmlands in the area.

The animal was killed by teams of fishermen who have been trailing it's movements for sometime.

Samanaji town is situated on the banks of River Niger.

KEBBI FISHING COMMUNITY TRAPPED, KILLED HIPPOPOTAMUS.

Fishermen in Samanaji town in Koko Besse Local Government Area have succeeded in trapping Hippopotamus believed to be wrecking havoc on Farmlands in the area.

The Aqua animal was killed by teams of fishermen who have been trailing it's movements for sometime.

Reports from the area indicated that the Council's Chairman Bello Sarkin Gabas and Council Members have visited the scene this morning.

Samanaji town is situated on the banks of River Niger thus, having constant encounters with aqua creatures occur rampantly which may have negative effects on their population.
However, with no fishing regulatory mechanism in place, killing of endengered species may continue unabated across riverine Communities and other areas with significant wild life population.

It is however worth of note that the Kebbi State Governor Senator Abubakar Atiku Bagudu has been in the forefront of saving Wild Animals intruding into the State's territories while on grazing adventure. Reports from Bagudo Local Government Area indicated that the Elephants quarantined in the area are still there under the watch of State and Local Government officials.

Hunger go make us eat anything. We no wan know, we just wan eat. We need reorientation

Those quoting me should know that farmlands don't exist inside water. I still maintain my stance that the Hipo was killed for food. They just gave it a bad name to kill it

Illiteracy prevented them from knowing they could make a lot of money through tourism once they preserve Nature....

In east African countries it's a huge crime to kill such animal.

But in my cannibalistic country like Nigeria they can eat human being caught in a fishing net under water.

Is it the farmers that will protect the wildlife? Didn't you read where it was stated that the said animal has caused havoc to farmlands?

Dont you think it's time... Things changed around here... It's 2020.. We can't continue living like its the stone age...
There are countries that depends solely on tourism industry for IGR
I have a tourist site in my village... Though it has nothing to do with wildlife..

Though this is Buhari time.. Hunger in the land
It's eat or be eaten... Rule of the jungle
But common sense must persist

Let me tell you a story about a rat that got stuck in a sewer lid somewhere in Europe ..
It took the Service of the City Fire department to free it and release it back where it belongs.

I mean a rat... Think about this
And put a value on life

Government takes the lead..
The NOA is the agency for that

The fraudulent national assembly can also make laws banning such killings..

I know for a fact that in 100 years time
There will be no single specie of snake in the country

So, why blaming the farmers from protecting themselves against the predator?

It was killed for terrorizing the community and not for meat per say.

Read the very short OP in order to get reoriented.

Is it so hard to read?

They invaded the animal space because the animal was the previous owner, right? So, they shouldn't have cleared their land and should just neglected the zone because the landowner (animals) are there?

hippos are territorial and they got a nasty behaviour,if they always go to where they are then they will attack,its just normal,and hippos kill more human yearly than any other animal.

Blame the government
How do you think those farmers can feed them if been preserved?

And how will they feel if the preserved finally dies?
