Me: yes bros, good evening.
Felix: you nor dey fear oh see as only you just stand for this rugged area.

So two of us stay middle of the river dey kill fish, i saw one electric fish not too big, i cut the head and use filter to put it inside my bag, i caught alot of fish before the unusual happen something i will never forget in a hurry.
I heard a big sound from our front like a splash or something, i look that area i nor see anything.

Me: e be like say na big fish oh but i nor see anything.
Then i heard the sound again, this time closer omo this fish go big oh, the thing they swim come meet me self with boldness, i never still know wether na fish or not and i don dey fear,
Felix: commot for river, na big fish be that oh make i face am alone.
I ran out of the big river while felix stood at the middle holding his matchet like matchete with confidence like rambo.
Then i saw it from where i stand, a very mighty fish like arrow head, swimming close to felix, i started shouted shouting.
Me: bros bros commot for the river, that fish too big oh e get arrow head oh, you nor go fit kill am.
Felix: keep quiet make you nor scare am that chemical don weak am so e no go dey strong no worry my guy.
Omo make una come see action film, as the fish swim closer to felix, felix rose his matchet and hit the fish on the head, then there was silent, no blood, nothing at all, after a minute something took felix down the river, then the thing started dragging felix to the bottom of the river, i ran after it shouting, make una help oh, make una help oh something don carry felix oh.

Felix was struggling trying to free himself from the grip and the fish was slowing down still holding hom tight, my bros took bamboo wood from the ground and ran to the front, before the deepest part there is one big tree that fell on the river creating a crosspart, my brother quickly climb the tree, i reach there omo i nor fit climb this tree oh e dey too tiny, even the other guys no climb am, maybe na boyscout wey my brother join give am mind like that my brother set the bamboo tree downward as the fish approach, e be like say the fish don tire because e don they slow down, so as the fish approach the tree, felix rose his hands up and grip the bamboo stick, the fish still try to pull felix from the bamboo, therefore making my brother to fall inside the river, as my brother fell ontop the river, i quickly look for another bamboo and throw it to them, e be like the fish don go, because i nor see am again, my brother drag felix from the river as he grip the bamboo, while i pull them from the deep blue sea with felix bleeding badly.
