Post created on 10:30 am


Residents of Okpoama kingdom and neighbouring communities in Brass Island, Brass Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, are thanking God for sending them a giant animal that was washed to the Okpoama beach.

In the early hours of Wednesday at the seashore of the Atlantic Ocean, a stranded whale that looked dead was seen washed off the seashore as residents troop out with different weapons to take their share.

The whale measuring 15 meters long, five meters wide and three meters high was surrounded by youths of Twon-Brass, Odioma, Fish Town and Sangana with different containers.

An indigene of the community and a former Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, in Bayelsa State, Mr Tarinyo Akono, said the whale may have died after it got stranded due to a low tide on Tuesday, that if it was found alive, it could perhaps have been rescued and sent back to the sea.

Adding to what Akono said, Youth President of Okpoama Seiyefa Felix Ben-Basuo, revealed that because of the fish size, people are still at the waterside butchering and taking portions.
