The unusual giant snake troubling the inhabitants of Ikola-Ilumo, Agbado Oke Odo Local Council Development Area of Lagos State have been killed by a brave hunter, Baba Agbomola Okesagun.
On Sunday afternoon, the divers were busy at work when one of them took notice of the python in a hole it slid into.
He called for support to get it killed, but, as narrated by the divers, their cutlass did not penetrate the snakeâ€™s thick skin.
They said they also hit it with sticks, none of which had any effect on the monstrous beast.
â€œWe then sent for a local hunter who came with a charmed dane gun.
â€œThe hunter, known as Baba Agbomola Okesagun, rushed to the scene and, while reciting some incantations, fired several shots at the snake, killing it without much ado,â€ the divers narrated.
This correspondent witnessed the hunter emerge from the bush pulling the snake behind him.
Those who stay around the river claimed that the python was a source of worry to them, as it regularly came out in search of food.
In commemoration of the exploits, Baba Agbomola Okesagun served dry gin in a portable glass cup to as many observers as wished to drink.
