A thief who reportedly makes his snake swallow his loot, was reportedly nabbed at New Benin Market on Tuesday. According to Facebook user, Uuzele Louis, jungle justice was meted out to the man who was just identified as an ‘Hausa man’.
Here’s what he wrote;
This Hausa man was found stealing people’s phones and money at new Benin market today. It was said that the snake swallowed all what he stole at that moment before people started beating him to make the snake vomit the items.
Some followers who commented on the post, also backed up the snake story. Here are photos below;
This is coming days after Nigerian Senator, Shehu Sani stormed JAMB’s office with anti-snake venom and snake charmers to ascertain the truth behind the snake claims. Recall that the visit left JAMB Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede, in laughter when he presented him with two packs of anti-snake venom and offered the services of two snake charmers to fish out snakes that swallowed huge amount of money.
“The reason for my presence here is in response to the story that a snake swallowed about N36 million. It is my concern that such a huge amount of money is reported to have been swallowed by a snake. .
I believe the contribution I can make is to bring snake charmers from my constituency to the JAMB office to help them fish out the snake or weed out snakes from their premises.
“If a snake can actually swallow N36 million one day we may wake up in this country to see that a snake has swallowed our foreign reserve or it has swallowed money that was gathered in the TSA” Mr. Sani said.
Recounting his experience to the prospective clients, one of the snake charmers, Tasiu Abdulrasheed, who claimed to have been a professional snake charmer for up to 20 years, said he has never encountered a money-swallowing reptile.
