It was gathered that this is he same place where a blue marlin fish was also caught barely a week ago.
According to reports, this fishing settlement is the largest fishing-port in West Africa.
As the fisherman caught the baby shark, the whole community gathered to take their own ration just as they did in the case of the blue marlin fish.
The rare blue marlin fish that was caught by the fisherman reportedly worth $2.6m over 2 billion when converted to Nigerian currency.
The amount of money the fish costs led social media users to drag the fisherman on Twitter.
But in a latest development, AFP Fact Check confirmed that the fish is not worth the amount initially estimated.

According to AFP Fact Check, the alleged $2.6 million value of the fish was taken from a July 2019 article by CNBC on the White Marlin Open in the US - a week-long fishing competition held every August.
