The fish was identified to be a Guitarfish and people got bewildered as the local fishermen that caught it displayed it for public view before butchering it.
As narrated by local fishermen, they went out fishing in the morning casting their net in the lagoon, then they felt a rush in the net, and then they pulled it out hoping to see a regular fish but saw a strangely looking creature.
They stabbed it severally, and it took the fish 20 minutes to die properly. Some people said it was a sting ray but a sting ray won’t be able to survive in a lagoon. The fish was measured the length of 5.5 feet and a wing span of 3 feet.
