This is raining season, as much as you can, clear your surroundings. This snake was found in the room of a student in his bed, thank God he was sensitive enough to see it before sleeping.
Lock doors and windows as early as possible at evenings, u can also spray repellents and the likes to chase the unwanted away.”

“God’s Miracles never end and they are marvellous in our eyes.
God saved me from a dangerous horrible looking cobra yesterday night in my toilet Seat(WC) here in Abraka delta state.
It was around 7.34pm when wanted to use the toilet (pee) I decided to use my touch light to view the sink before action,i saw a black stuff below the water in the toilet seat and I was trying to identify what it could be because I used the toilet some hours ago.
Lo and behold it was a horrible looking cobra. I called the care taker of the hostel where I live, he came and confirmed it.The snake is so big that we couldn’t devised another good means to kill it than the use of Gun.
For more than 2hrs the snake was there until we called the attention of the vigilante group and finally it was killed with the aid of a gun.
Please always make sure you look very well before using your toilet. I couldn’t believe how it entered but verifications say it came from the toilet suck away pit.
