A 38-year-old woman, identified as Mrs. Torugbene-Ere Aboh, escaped death by the whiskers, following a violent attack on her by a shark at Forcados River in Oboro Community, Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State.
Vanguard gathered that the woman, a mother of five, who was taking her bath in the overflowing river, had gone for a three-day fasting programme in a church in the community, when she was attacked by the shark in the river.
Narrating her ordeal, Mrs Aboh, said: “Shortly after I started bathing, I felt a sharp cut on my right leg and I screamed for help. The screaming drew the attention of my brethren who were also in the river and they came to my rescue.
“I was immediately taken to a nearby patent medicine shop, where I was given 12 stitches before I was later taken by my husband, to a private clinic at Bomadi, for proper medical treatment.”
unbelievable, shark in naija
Yes they’re sharks in Nigeria but never in the river (fresh waters). Sharks can only be found in salt waters like the ocean. I have personaly sited a shark in takwa bay in lagos and so many people have given their experiences on sharks along the beach shore lines but never have I heard of shark in inland waters (rivers). Never ! The story is fake.
Kash u r right and wrong at d same time. As a zoologist( parasitology major) i can assure u dat even though sharks r not commonly known to be in fresh water, species of sharks like d bull shark and lemon shark av been observed severally in fresh water e.g. Rivers in d States in time past especially when there has been a flood and d water in d river rises to an extent capable of accomodatimg d shark. D great whites r an exception as they r mostly salt water species. U cant doubt her story until investigations confirm s story. D bites on her legs can be used to clarify d situation since their dentition print wud be shown in d injuries.
Forward this case to GEJ for verification ,you know Zoologist
Super story,abeg It cant be shark
First of all. The area forcados river in burutu is an area closed to the atlantic ocean where salt water also run through. Second, we are in a flood period when all kinds of water and animals move from one location to the other. So the story can be true.
wey d picture mak lie kill una (lyk say na true0
I love dat woman jare…she’s indirectly asking govt. 2 take all measures 2 stop dis flooding 2 avoid sharks invading our homes soon. Even i myself, shark had bitten me once o 4 our street gutter. Bt dat woman surname na ‘LION’ if am nt mistaken
Shark will neva bite nd live its prey, I dives, bite and hold it prey until a sizable chunk of flesh is removed. A crab or other canivour fish must hav bitten her. Cuz if truly its a shark, before she called for help, d shark wit it taste for blood wud hav immidaitly come bck to finish her off. So its not a shark. Nd above all shark cannot be found on fresh waters. Bio 101
Don kwn wat 2 say! But scam message.
Lol, imagn d fat lie! So d shark jst bit ha a little nd left d rest,hahaha i tnk sum pple r jst lukn 4 wt to writ,infact i wz der n it wasnt a shark….itz a blue whale
It can b shark it can b any type of big Fishs so let kip da aside. So d shark jx bit her alite witout eatn her up, shark dnt pity human fresh.

oh….. na my mother b dat na KILLER WHALE with ANACONDA SNAKE at it’s head na em bite am,but as say she dey fast she just say some”rabaskakaraba”am d them run .Lolz………..
did the woman mentioned shark when narrating what happend to her?..naija writer’s why adding pepper and salt?
I guess the reason d shark didn’t finish her up might be that the Shark was not from ALLU, cus only sharks from ALLU finish up their victims. So I’ve heard.lol
read d news pipo, a violent shark attacked her yet it was just a sharp pain she felt, informatn9ja saw d shark bkos d woman did nt c it. tales by moonlight. uncontrolled hunger afta d fasting produced d shark 4 fud 4 d woman bt she did nt take advantage.hahahaha 9ja no go kil me

I don tire 2 laf…my bele don ful wif lafta…..onli d small of blood dey skata shark head nt 2 com tok of d fresh meat wey im c com chop som part comot blood..haba original shark go bite u hard,,drag ur bodi go if ur blood sweet wel wel..lol may b na “BIG”cat fish wey bite her….
u guy wouldn’t kill me wit laugh. Shark or no shark dia was a BEATEN, she is alive nw amen. Amen lol
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha(da woman sure say no be waterproof wa da inside water touch ha)
2 de jokers, lack of informatn plays a major role in ur lives. Jst so u knw, sharks could be in fresh water and salt water. Some sharks attack cos of hunger coupled wid de facts dey see a movin object. It doesn’t mean all sharks like human flesh. Some are resistant to human flesh.
As a zoologist in the field of fishery,sharks are totally misunderstood. Thank God for William Winram who always campain on man and shark. Please i will like you to go and read more about shark. Sharks are friend of human. Sharks bite is usually a mistake. Sharks are friend of human. Proudly zoologist!
