"Mermaid-like Creature" found in Ibadan is actually a baby Octopus (Photos)

A few days ago, the city of Ibadan went haywire as news of a certain "Mermaid-like creature" was said to have been found by a fish seller, Ramota Salawu. Apparently, the creature was only a baby Octopus.

Ramota reportedly claims the creature, which was found in a carton of frozen fish told her not to shout though she defied that and screamed for help. There was another 'eye-witness' account that  the 'mermaid' was shy and repeatedly swung her long hair around to cover her face (smh).

The Commissioner of Police in Oyo State, Mohammed Ndabawa, on Wednesday described as untrue the story of a fish with human parts reported in Ibadan on Tuesday.He confirmed it was a baby octopus and displayed it for journalists to see

He also said the woman was placed under protective custody and would be released when tension dies down.
