Killing Of Ancestral Python: Owerri Chief Priest Storms Alvan, Warns Of Danger by nwokeji29: 4:43pm On Jul 22
The Chief Priest of Owerre (Onye Ishi Ala), Reginald Ejiogu on Monday, stormed the Alvan Ikoku Federal College of Education, AIFCE, Owerri, with an ‘Omu’ signaling danger ahead for students and management of the citadel of learning, over the killing of an ancestral python, called Eke Nworie

Recently students of the institution had killed the gigantic python, an act considered a sacrilege, within the norms and tradition of Owerre.



The Chief Priest had emphasized on the need for cleansing, to avert occurrence of strange incidents over the murder of the ancestral python.

In a letter to the management of Alvan, the Chief Priest, demanded that “the College management must appear before him (the Chief Priest) for cleansing upon receipt of the Notice on or before seven days”

He noted that the murder of the python “is a sacrilege and violation of our culture more especially in this time of our festival season which is our week of peace”

INNONEWS was informed that a similar incident had occured between 1979-1980 during the construction of Wethedral/Christ Church Road, Owerri, when some foreign contractors killed the “Eke Ala Owerre” python, the forebearer of the “Eke Nworie” python killed by students of Alvan.

An attendant to the Chief Priest told this newspaper “When the foreign contractors killed the Eke Ala Owerre python, strange things began to occur. There were mysterious deaths among the contractors. There were breakdown of their machines.

“At a stage, they abandoned the road project, until they were cleansed by the then Chief Priest of Owerre, (Onye Ishi Ala Owerre), Late Eke Igwe Nwoduo Ejiogu

He continued “The management of ALVAN think this is a joke. This is a spiritual matter, and they seem not to understand the gravity of killing that ancestral python

“The consequences are monumental, devastating because the land has been descreated. And it must be cleansed immediately.

“You do not kill Eke Nworie python. It is not done. It is a sacrilege with serious consequences that are just to terrible to mention.

“This is why the Chief Priest had to come here today (at Alvan) to put this ‘Omu’ which signifies danger ahead. No one should blame us if strange things begin to happen.

“Only the Chief Priest, no one else, is spiritually fit to do the cleansing and not anyone else” he stated.

Yahoo ni Babalawo.

Nothing is going to happen to the students.

But the students have to respect the culture of the land to avoid trouble with the indigenes

Is there any day strange things don't occur?
Just yesterday one 5h I kept in my drawer vanished, there is no scenario I haven't constructed in my head to explain it. I was all alone in the room I saw the money and now I can't even explain how it's no more.

What I'm trying to say is that strange thing will occur wether they cleanse or they don't cleanse. The only thing that might change is that some people will blame the occurrence on the snake thus giving this fable traction it doesn't deserve.

Make una sha reason the chief priest small money make e no be like say e STORM the place for nothing.

Lala front page oooh!
