After many hours of rigorous hunting, a hippopotamus met its death in River Niger, Jebba, Niger state.
The hunt for it allegedly started in the early hours of Wednesday and was killed at about 4pm on Thursday, after six gunshots and numerous arrows.
It was said to have been killed to avert tragedy in the area. Four local boats were destroyed in the process.
