I can see that Nigerians are now coming back to their senses. No more 'kill and eat" mentality for every exotic animal.

Una go get sense by force for this country.

This squarely is usually found in igbo land especially on palm trees

Very smart, jumps from one tree to another and very difficult to kill.

Its unsafe to eat this meat as it has a poisonous effects.

This could cause Ebola.
Pls do not eat it

The one in your description is squirrel

Which is smaller than this with more than one color of hair

you're right, we call it ikpukpa in my Ohuhu dialect. If one crosses, more are bound to follow, making it an easy hunt.

Google says cane rats live by the river

"The cane rat lives by reed-beds and riverbanks in Sub-Saharan Africa. Cane rats can grow to nearly 60 cm (2.0 ft) in length and weigh a little less than 8.5 kg (19 lb)"
