Bayelsa youths catch a very big fish reportedly worth over $20 million dollars, video trend online

Social media users went crazy over a video of some young people in Bayelsa State with an enormous shark that is reportedly worth over $20 million dollars.

The video shows the young people in large groups attempting to pull the already-dead fish that are scattered across a river out of the water.

The video, captioned “See how big that catfish caught in Bayelsa is! Biggest in the world?” depicts the dead fish being pushed from one end in the water until it is finally brought onto land by the youths

Social media commenters asserted that the fish had an estimated value of $120 million shortly after the incident was captured on camera and went viral.

@kolarwaheed: “I know this fish. Every part you cut of grows up back in less than 2min. This fish is worth around $22m.”

@kemmy_H1: “At this point it’s safe to assume that people aren’t aware that catfish can grow as much as it’s environment will allow it.”

@iamsamuelokon: “This isn’t a catfish ooo… I’ve seen this fish before in Eastern Obolo, Ibeno… Any part u cut-off grows back within 10-15 seconds… And I bet u that if the entire Bayelsa State gathers together, they can’t finish that fish.”
