The Mungo Park memorial, Jebba

Mungo Park, as eny fule kno, was a scottish explorer of the late eighteenth century. He was one of the first european explorers to travel the length of the Niger River by boat but his canoe came to a frothy end just north of here near Bussa. The site of the rapids that drowned him is now under the Kainji Dam reservoir. The locals avoid this monument - it has a reputation for bringing bad things.
