Apprehension As Snake Bites Man’s Manhood Twice In NSCDC Office
Pandemonium took over the Personell of the FCT Command of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) at Wuse Zone 5 after snakes were discovered at the office premises.
The snakes were discovered when one of them attacked a worker who was installing a telecommunication device and decided to use a toilet on the premises.
He was bitten twice by the snake and rushed to the hospital. He was later moved to a traditional treatment center as requested by his family.
Some officers who witnessed the incident said non-native” pythons seemed to have established a breeding population at the office premises.
On March 29, 2022, the command authorities employed the services of some snake charmers who captured nine snakes after about three hours.
An officer said; “Huge snakes, some up to 20 feet long or more, with telephone-pole-sized girths, have been parading the area.
“As I speak to you, we are now afraid of night duty. The March 29 incident was not an isolated case, as snakes have become regular guests at the FCT command.”
Another officer said: “On that fateful day, my colleague and I were coming out of the security post when the victim screamed and when we rushed to his aid, we saw a big snake, raised the alarm and immediately alerted our superiors.
“Members of our Rapid Rescue Unit were alerted and they immediately rushed to the spot and took him to a hospital. The snake bit him twice on his manhood. On hearing the news, other officers and visitors at the premises immediately left the premises.”
When the image-maker of the command, Comfort Okomanyi, was contacted concerning the issue she said it was not true.
She said: “I am disputing that information, it is not true, I do not know where you people get information from.”
When repeatedly asked if she was actually disputing the fact that someone was bitten by a snake and if snake charmers did not capture nine reptiles, she said; “Yes, we carried out a fumigation exercise and a snake was killed.”
