Photos of a chimpanzee killed and eaten by hunters and locals in Nembe Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, have sparked an outrage online.
In the viral photos which surfaced on Facebook recently, hunters were pictured boasting about killing the chimpanzee at the Edumanom Forest Reserve in the state. They also reportedly sold the meat to interested residents.
A Twitter user, who allegedly bought the meat, took to Twitter to reveal that he cooked pepper soup with it, and washed it down with yoghurt.
“Gunned down by a hunter in the forest today at Nembe, Bayelsa state. A good meal,” he captioned the post.
