Nigerian man catches weird fish while digging a hole in Yenagoa (photo) ••
In a post which has since gone viral on social media, a young man has revealed how he found a strange-looking fish while digging a hole in Yenagoa, Bayelsa state.
A Nigerian man has caused a stir on social media after releasing the picture of a fish which he reportedly dug up from a hole.
According to a post shared by the Facebook user, Emmanuel Emmanuel Udoh, he was carrying out excavations in a building site when he saw the fish which was supposed to be in water.
Udoh is however questioning if the fish moved to dry land due to pollution in the river.
Sharing the post he wrote:
OK …while excavating in a residential/built-up area I found lots of this, and they are quite huge! This one na small one sef For real……
Before I ask if it’s edible. I wonder what could make fishes leave the rivers and streams to shallow waters in residential areas.
Could it be that the natural waters have been so destroyed by oil exploration, that they now migrate to safer waters with less pollution or it’s just a natural occurrence? Now is this edible? Cos there are lots of them here.”
