A hunter, identified simply as Ojaja has killed an elephant in a forest in Ondo state. The hunter was pictured posing with the elephant he reportedly killed in Idanre
Ajaja is seen posing on the elephant with a rifle and comments under the post on Facebook reveal the elephant destroys crops before it was felled.
Naija News could not verify the date when the elephant was killed, but this is a curious event that should be iinvestigated as more elephants could be existing across Nigerian forests without anyone knowing about it.
Meanwhile, Ace comedian Alibaba has reacted to the story saying the elephant is worth more to the hunter alive than dead.
Congratulations. You killed the elephant. The meat will last 6 months. Or if you sell it you will make lets say about 200k… hmmm. Then someone will say his agency protects the endangered species in Nigeria. They think it’s just about placing adverts to justify their annual allocation. If we had functional reserves, would we not have more value for this elephant? There are full grown adults of 40 years plus, that have never set their eyes on a real elephant, or even touched one. But hey… You can not blame the man. If he knew how much that elephant would have fetched him ALIVE… He would not have killed it. And see the spectators… all wishing it was their luck.
