Hippotamus in Kebbi

The sea animal was killed by teams of fishermen who have been trailing its movements for some time. Samanaji town is situated on the banks of River Niger.

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 occurs rampantly which may have negative effects on their population.

However, with no fishing regulatory mechanism in place, the killing of endangered species may continue unabated across riverine Communities and other areas with significant wildlife populations.

It is however worthy 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.
