Luke Erukakpome a student of Delta State University, Abraka has miraculously escaped and killed a huge snake that hid inside his flush toilet.
Mr Erukakpome took to his Facebook account on Monday to narrate his ordeal.
“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” he ended.
A similar case was narrated few weeks back by a lady in Lagos who noted that her husband was almost bitten by the snake which had already entered the room through the toilet.
Caution should be taken this period as the reptiles are looking for cool places to hide. It is wise to look into the toilet carefully before making use of it.
