Reactions as man loses over 800 fishes after asking brother to take care of his ponds
“Sorry for your loss but why is that your brother still smiling in the video? You don’t have oraimo cord?”
“These people don’t look they are mourning especially the one that caused the death of the fishes.”
“So all the fish we are eating is alive fish?”
“This is so sad but don’t worry bro, just Dey chop fish Dey go for the next 2 months as long as you get freezer to stock them. Abi you wan waste the fish cos them die untimely death?”
“Good thing you people disposed of it, some people would have sold it regardless, so sorry for vour loss.”
“I don’t know why the only day you relax and ask someone to help you, they’d never do it well. But if it were you, you’d bend your back over to make sure the person you’re helping is satisfied and happy. Since I noticed this, I no dey ask people to help me do anything again. They don’t exhibit the same zeal and passion you use when you’re the one helping them. Sorry bros.”
“The water didn’t get contaminated. He forgot to close the discharge channel of the pond (which means the pond lost lot of water and the remaining water there is not enough for all the fish to survive and probably direct sun hit them and they died because they couldn’t hide from the hot sun or the dissolve oxygen in the water is too low because of the extremely low water level).”
“Nobody can handle your business like you, sadly all this siblings na only billing they sabi, to even support your for the business wey the bring the money na problem!”
