According to residents, they have always lived in fear because of the activities of the snakes.

They said they have lost their domestic animals, especially fowls and goats, saying the snakes sneak out in the dead of the night to attack them.

It was also gathered that the state government is currently clearing and expanding the Aba river from Okpulor Umuobo to Azumini to make it easy for flying boats to handle.

The snakes were identified to be cobra and python.

The residents further appealed to the state government to fumigate the area popularly known as the ‘Good day’ market to save them from potential attacks from other snakes.
