A group of hunters will be facing 5 months in Jail for killing two African antelopes in Bauchi state.
NE gathered that the three hunters (Mai-Riga Ahmadu, Munkailu Sani, and Umar Hussaini)were arrested on July 19th around Tungan-Kifi at Yankari Game reserve in Bauchi state.
The hunters, who originate from Kashera reportedly killed a hartebeest (African Antelope) and Waterbuck (another type of large antelope found widely in sub-Saharan Africa) before their arrest.
They were each slammed with a five-month jail sentence with an option of a N100,000 fine each. They were unable to pay the fine and so all three were incarcerated.
