Residents of Ijaw-Kiri, a fishing community in Brass Local Government Area, Bayelsa State, at the weekend butchered and shared a massive dead whale found on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean.
It was gathered that residents of the community woke up in the morning to see the lifeless massive sea creature.
On discovering that the whale was dead, they returned to their homes but came back in their numbers armed with cutlasses, axe and other sharp objects.
People from other neighboring communities of Odioma and Okpoama were said to have hurried to the shore to partake in the feast.
Most of the residents were seen standing on the massive creature and cutting various sizes of meat from it with the blood of the whale saturating the sea.
It was observed that one of the excited residents came with a saw to facilitate the cutting of the sea creature into sizes.
