A 15-feet (4.572 metres)- snake has been killed by a 23-year-old herdsman, Bayo Ibrahim, close to the Ado-Afao-Ekiti road in Ekiti State.

Spectators called it various names, including “Aminurin”, “Ojola” and “Ako Monomono”, which are all Yoruba names for a massive snake. It was learnt that the snake had been killing domestic animals, including dogs, sheep, goats and chickens.

The size of the snake attracted spectators from as far as Odo-Ado, Oke-Ila, Basiri, Nova Road and GRA in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, to the sparsely-populated Afao road, turning it into a Mecca of sorts.

The spectators said: “We have never seen anything likethis”; “Is this what we have been living with?” and “This is the wonder of the year in Ekiti”.

They pushed one another to catch a view of the snake, which some said was big enough to feed, at least 40 sturdy men.

Ibrahim, who hails from Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, said he saw three snakes while grazing his herd close to the road and killed them with a cutlass.

He said: “I am a cattle rearer. I saw three snakes in a small bush and killed them with my cutlass. I sold two yesterday for N10,000 each. I have also sold this last one for N10,000 to that man.

“I have killed about 12 of such snakes. They always kill our dogs and goats. But they have not killed any person. They do not kill by biting. They roll round their prey and suffocate it, until it dies. If you want to kill them, aim for the head and do not miss it, because if you do, it can be fatal. If you are scared, do not go near it, but if you are sharp and quick, you will kill it easily.”

Many spectators said it was strange to see such a long and thick snake.

Ajayi Adekunle said: “To me and most of us here, it is new. I have seen such snakes many times in movies, but never in real life. It will easily kill and swallow humans. You can see how big it is. Even a car cannot kill it. I urge people living in this area to be careful, as more of this snake may still be around here.”
