An endangered turtle was killed after it was caught by some residents in Lagos.
The sea dwelling animal, was butchered by the residents who deemed it right to make a meal out of it.
The animal killing is coming days after a leather-back turtle, was saved from certain death by a woman, Doyinsola Ogunye, at Elegushi Beach in Lagos, after it came ashore.
Ogunye, who ensured that the endangered animal was returned to the sea, shared several photos and videos of the animal and the attempts by some residents to kill it. She said that the animal had come to the beach because it wanted to lay eggs.
In her bid to raise awareness about the existence of the animal, she called on the government agencies and private organisations.
