This mighty leatherback turtle was captured by workers under the SEEFOR road construction project in the Foropa kingdom.
The sea animal was nabbed by the workers after their day at work in the kingdom situated in Bayelsa State.
The unlucky animal was captured with a large net after which life was snuffed out of it. The workers rejoiced aloud as they prepared to make a sumptuous meal out of it.
Many Nigerians have frowned at the killing of the endangered species of aquatic animals as they feel it should have been spared like it is done abroad.
