For months now, Port Harcourt, River state has been engulfed with black soot polluting the air and putting the residents’ health in danger.
The soot includes black particles produced by incomplete combustion of coals. Soot can consist of acid, chemicals, or soil and dust.
Many residents are scared as expected and together with other Nigerians they have expressed their fears on social media, mainly using the hashtag: #StoptheSoot. Below are some tweets:
Meanwhile, it was a shocking scene on February 7, when a woman who had been pregnant for about 3 years in Rivers state, gave birth to a goat.
According to a Facebook user, Simeon Chukwu, the woman got delivered at Karaka Community Hall in Rumuowha Eneka area of Port Harcourt.
The hopes of family members who were excited that the lady had finally gone into labour were dashed after they were told that she delivered a goat instead of a baby.
