Yemoji Natural Pool
This 3.5 kilometre long river is as strange as a river can be. There is a belief the locals have around eating a particular type of yam and getting close to the river. According to the indigenes of the community, anyone who recently ate Esuru, yellow yam, must not swim in the Yemoji Natural Pool or even come close to it. If they do, an ancient snake that lives in the river will emerge and may bite them. In fact, it is believed that the mere appearance signals a bad omen for the community. Keep this in mind if you do visit this place.
